At Pindrop Hearing Centre we make the experience as comfortable and stress free as possible. If you need a hearing test in Abbotsford, Pindrop is just a phone call away.
What Happens at a Hearing Test?
A qualified, specially trained professional will perform your evaluation. This can typically be completed in 30-45 minutes. Once your hearing has been assessed for type and level of hearing loss, we can then advise you on the best solutions for your situation. This may involve continued monitoring over time, or we may recommend a hearing aid. You may even get to try one out right here in the office to get a feel for what it will be like.
Once you’ve had your test and a solution has been decided upon, if that solution involves a corrective device you will come back in one to two weeks for a fitting. During this appointment we will fit the hearing aid to your ear and program it for your specific needs. There is usually a considerable amount of adjustment and fine tuning that can be done but we typically keep it to a minimum at first, until you’ve had a chance to adjust to your new device.
Once you’ve had your hearing aid for one to two weeks, you will come in for a follow-up appointment. At this time further fine tuning can be performed, and we may test your device with something called Real Ear Equipment to see just exactly how it’s performing while in your ear.
