Comprehensive Hearing Evaluations

Careful and thorough hearing evaluations are critical to understanding your hearing loss and determining if your treatment should be medical or non-medical.

If a hearing aid is warranted, proper selection, fitting, education and regular care are critical to success. The Audiology Center at Topeka ENT will work with you to address your issues and achieve the very best results—and then continue to support you whenever you need our guidance and advice.

You have so many reasons to hear your best, and we’re here to make that possible!

Your Topeka ENT Audiology Center visit includes:

DIAGNOSTIC HEARING EVALUATION - A diagnostic hearing evaluation is the first step in assessing the degree of your hearing loss. Your evaluation will reveal any medically treatable causes of your hearing loss.

FITTING - The Audiology Center at Topeka ENT will help you select the proper hearing aids and fit them to your ears. Because we are an independent clinic, we’re free to choose products from any leading manufacturer.

VERIFICATION - Verifit® “real-ear” measures will be used to set the hearing aids. Individualized real-ear measures represent a “best practices” approach and prevent over- or under-amplification of a hearing instrument.

EDUCATION - You’ll learn about the care of your hearing aids, gain an understanding of realistic expectations, and explore communication strategies to make the most of your enhanced hearing.

PRACTICE - Our team will work with you to master proper insertion and removal of your hearing aids.

MAINTENANCE - You’ll learn to remove and replace batteries, and troubleshooting techniques to keep your hearing aids in perfect working order. Your ongoing care will be planned and scheduled.
