During the visit, you will have an opportunity to discuss your personal hearing needs with your doctor, ask and answer questions and receive a hearing evaluation. If you have a hearing loss, you will also receive follow-up recommendations about actions you can take.
We recommend that you bring a spouse, family member or friend to this visit. You will typically get more out of your visit if someone close to you can share in the experience, particularly if hearing devices are recommended. We will discuss your hearing history to understand what factors have influenced your hearing, and also to get more information on your personal hearing needs:
- How you think you are doing in different situations.
- What you are doing to deal with hearing issues in your every day life.
As your appointment approaches, it is a good idea to start thinking about these questions. Your spouse or family member can give important feedback. Often it is the other people who live and work with that can tell when you are having some difficulties.
