The first step to a hearing test is checking to make sure that your hearing problem is not caused by excessive wax or any other physical medical issue. This is done by using an otoscope to physically look inside your ear canal. You will be able to see inside your own ear, on a large monitor, as the hearing specialist is looking as well.
During this guided tour of your ear, the hearing specialist can answer any questions you may have at this time as well. This process is completely painless and takes very little time to conduct. If it is discovered that wax may be a factor in your hearing problem, we may be able to remove the wax, otherwise we can provide a referral to have it removed.
