CRAIG T. BARTH, Audiologist
We offer a thorough audiometric evaluation to determine your degree of hearing loss, what might have caused your hearing loss, and what treatment protocol may be best suited for you.
We offer a thorough audiometric evaluation to determine your degree of hearing loss, what might have caused your hearing loss, and what treatment protocol may be best suited for you (possibly including, but not limited to hearing aids).
The testing will often include:
- Pure Tone Air and Bone Testing: Identifies the degree and specific location of hearing loss. It also assesses by pitch (frequency) what specific sounds you have hearing difficulty with and what sounds, if any, you hear relatively well.
- Speech Reception and Acuity Testing: Tests how well you can hear and understand speech in quiet environments
- Speech-in-Noise Testing:: For those who question the relevancy of word recognition testing in a sound booth, we have speech-in-noise testing. These calibrated and “normalized” tests show how well you can hear and understand speech in more realistic noisy environments.
- Acoustic Immittance Testing: Assesses your eardrum's functional health and auditory reflexes.
- Tympanometry: This examination tests your middle ear function and your eardrum through changes in air pressure.
We also do Industrial Hearing Testing. If your occupation puts you at risk of hearing loss, regular hearing tests are essential to monitor your hearing. These hearing screenings are performed either in-office or on-site and are in full compliance with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the Mining Safety and Health Administration. Pre-employment hearing assessments are similarly offered.
