At this appointment your audiologist will give you an accurate picture of your hearing and discuss the most appropriate treatment for your hearing needs.
Your audiologist will conduct specialized testing to discover whether a hearing loss exists, the exact degree and type of hearing loss, and the best treatment options going forward. A full diagnostic assessment includes several audiology tests and includes a written report for you and your physician. Please allow approximately one hour. Medical hearing evaluations are covered by most insurance plans.
San Francisco Hearing Center’s audiologists offer a full range of diagnostic hearing evaluations, including comprehensive evaluations for children aged 5 and up and adults. Our audiograms can be used for a medical diagnosis, hearing aid device prescriptive targets, ototoxic medication monitoring, employment exams, and hearing loss management. Services also include hearing monitoring and conservation services for people with particular needs, such as musicians, law enforcement, those who work in noisy environments and people taking medications that may harm their hearing or are undergoing medical treatments that affect hearing.
No waiting for test results!
We’ll review results with you immediately following the exam. Our hearing evaluations are much more comprehensive than the free hearing tests given by a hearing aid dispenser at retail hearing aid stores, and are conducted and interpreted by a licensed audiologist with a Doctor of Audiology degree.
