Do I need a doctor’s referral to see an audiologist?

The FDA recommends that people purchasing hearing aids have a medical evaluation prior to purchasing them. Although we welcome a doctor’s referral, we do not require one.

However, when a patient has symptoms such as rapidly decreasing hearing loss within 90 days, pain or drainage in one or both ears, dizziness or a feeling of fullness we recommend they see their family physician to rule out potentially serious medical conditions.

If a patient comes to us prior to seeing their own doctor, we will report any such problems to their physician and, in cases where a medical condition could be present, refer them to an ear, nose and throat specialist.

 

Are hearing aids water resistant?

In general, hearing aids and water are NOT a good combination. However, Affinity Hearing offers several instruments that are not only water resistant but are waterproof. Some instruments can even be worn while swimming.

 

Do I need to have a hearing evaluation/test?

Yes. The only way to determine your measure of hearing loss is to perform an evaluation. The hearing test results indicate how much amplification is needed and at which sound frequencies. The results of this test are called a pure tone audiogram. In addition to the pure tone audiogram, we will perform a free video otoscope examination of your ear canal. The video otoscope exam will allow you and us to see your ear canal and eardrum, to determine if wax or a middle ear problem could be causing your hearing loss. Lastly, the hearing evaluation includes an assessment of how well you understand speech.
