The Process: Your First Appointment at Hearing Sciences

1. You will be required to fill out a registration form that will include contact information, health card as well as some information related to your hearing.

2. The clinician will then review the form with you in greater detail.

3. The clinician will visually inspect your ear canals with an otoscope.

4. If the visual inspection is clear then the Tympanogram test will be done. This test tells the clinician how well the eardrum and other structures in the middle ear are working.

5. The hearing test will then begin if the Tympanogram is clear. The hearing test involves the patient sitting in a sound proof booth wearing headphones. The patient will hear tones that are different volume levels and pitches. The patient will push a button every time they hear a tone. There is also speech testing that is done wherein the patient repeats words that he or she hears.

6. After the hearing test is completed, the clinician will review the results with you.

7. If a hearing loss is confirmed you will have a hearing aid evaluation. This involves selection of appropriate style of hearing aids as well as model. There are various types of hearing aids available within various price ranges. The clinician will recommend the most appropriate hearing aids for your hearing loss needs and lifestyle after discussing the options with you.

8. Depending on the style and model of hearing aids recommended you may need impressions taken of your ears. If so, the impressions would then be sent to the hearing aid manufacturer so that they can make the hearing aids.

9. Before the appointment concludes we will discuss third party payment options. Such as the Assistive Devices Program (ADP), Veteran’s Affairs Canada (VAC), Workers Safety Insurance Board (WSIB), NIHB, ODSP, MCSS, private insurance, etc.

10. The hearing aid order will then be placed. It will typically take 1-2 weeks to receive the new hearing aids. Before you leave, an appointment will be booked for you to return for the fitting of your hearing aids. At that appointment, you will receive full information on the use and care of your hearing instruments.

11. A follow up appointment will be booked to ensure that you are comfortable with the operation and use of the instruments.

12. At any time you may contact our office and return for adjustments, fine-tuning, cleaning or to review information related to the hearing instruments. It is our goal to ensure that you are completely delighted with the performance and operation of your hearing instruments.
