Are you having trouble hearing? Do people around you have to repeat themselves often? At Allen Medical Associates in Smithtown, NY, we specialize in providing comprehensive hearing tests to assess your sensitivity to sound and determine if any hearing loss is present.

What is a Hearing Test?
A hearing test, also known as an audiometric evaluation, is a standard procedure used to assess the sensitivity of a person's sense of hearing. It involves using an audiometer to measure the individual's ability to hear sounds at different frequencies. This assessment can help identify any hearing loss and determine the best course of treatment.

During your hearing test, one of our Doctors will perform a series of tests to evaluate
your hearing. This may include:

Pure-tone testing involves listening to tones at different frequencies and indicating when you hear them.
Speech audiometry: You will be asked to repeat words or sentences at other volumes and background noise levels.
Middle ear testing: A tympanometer will be used to measure the movement of your eardrum in response to varying levels of air pressure.
Otoacoustic emissions (OAE) testing: A small probe will be placed in your ear to measure the sounds produced by your inner ear in response to clicks or tones.

Once you have completed your comprehensive hearing test, our experienced Doctor will carefully review the results to understand your unique hearing profile. Our Doctor will provide personalized recommendations tailored to your specific needs and preferences based on these results.
