Hearing Test or Hearing Screening?

You’ve seen and heard ads offering a FREE Hearing Screening and you’re wondering what exactly that means.  What is the difference between a test and a screen? How do I know which one I need?

First of all a screening is just that, a screening.  It’s a basic pass or fail situation that lets you and your audiologist know that further testing may be required.  If the screening is “failed”  in some cases we will send you to your primary care physician to get a referral for us to perform a full diagnostic hearing test and find out exactly what’s going on.

We are on a mission to help as many people as we can to hear better, so we have made it easy to qualify for a FREE screening. If any one or more of the following statements are true then give us a call to schedule your screening.

  • You are age 55 or over.
  • Have trouble hearing when background noise is present.
  • Your loved ones suggest that you should get your hearing tested.
  • You play the TV or Radio too loud.

Whether you are coming to Advanced Audiology for a full diagnostic test or a simple screening you will soon find out that we treat you like family.  Not the kind of family that bickers.  We are a welcoming oasis for you with snacks and coffee in our waiting room.  We understand how hard it is to admit that you have an issue with hearing, and we want to make sure that you are happy you made the choice to come and see us at Nola Aronson’s Advanced Audiology.
