What to Expect

We provide personalized hearing care to all individuals to determine whether they have hearing loss or if they may be in need of hearing aid solutions. Your appointment with a hearing aid professional will involve a hearing screening and an expert consultation to discuss the evaluation results. Your dedicated hearing aid professional will discuss your hearing health, help you understand what degree of hearing loss may exist for you, and discuss possible solutions.

Below is what you may typically expect at your hearing appointment:

Hearing Screening

Your hearing aid professional will examine and test your ears with the latest standard-of-care methods and technology. Test results will be illustrated and presented on a graph, known as an audiogram. Your hearing aid professional will review your audiogram results with you, as well as explain the cause of your hearing concerns, the type of hearing loss, and the level of hearing loss, if any exists.

Lifestyle Discussion

This step in the consultation is extremely crucial for your hearing aid professional to understanding you and your lifestyle. Although they will learn a lot from your audiogram results, no two people with similar hearing test results are the same. Expect your hearing aid professional to ask several hearing related questions, as well as questions that pertain to your lifestyle wants and needs. You’ll be asked about the places and listening environments you frequent in order to determine what range of sound settings and technological features fit your lifestyle.

Hearing Aid Options

Your hearing aid professional will show you the hearing aids that are designed for your level of hearing loss and lifestyle, as well as your preferences for size and color. They will be able to determine what style of hearing aid may be more appropriate for you – a standard hearing aid (a Receiver-in-Canal or Behind-the-Ear) or a custom hearing aid (one that is modeled off of the anatomy of your ear canal). They may also demonstrate the hearing aid’s capabilities.

Budget Discussion

Your hearing aid professional will help you determine which hearing aids are appropriate for you based on the features that meet your lifestyle wants and needs. The cost of hearing aids will vary depending on the specific model and features, and how effective it is in various noise environments. You’ll also discuss insurance and financing options, if applicable.


Hearing tests should be performed annually. Here at American Hearing Aid Center we know that hearing is such a critical aspect of your everyday life – including your career, relationships, physical and mental health, and more — so it’s important to be proactive, thorough, and treat any hearing loss before it turns into something bigger.
