What to Expect on Your First Visit

We always begin with a conversation that addresses your concerns and medical history. Then our hearing care professionals will inspect your ears, check for earwax (also known as cerumen) and for any foreign objects. These might be blocking your ear canals, which may lead to conductive hearing loss. We will also look for damage to your eardrum(s), infection or other abnormalities. If necessary, we will refer you to a medical doctor, most likely your primary care physician or an ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialist, for treatment.

Most hearing loss is not due to injury or physical issues, but damage to the hairs on your inner ear caused by noise exposure. This hearing loss, called sensorineural loss, is often treated by wearing hearing aids. Your hearing assessment results may be recorded on an audiogram. Mass Audiology has several ways to assess your hearing – and our team will explain every step of the way, as well as discuss the results.

Be confident that you heard right

Loneliness, depression and dementia – scientists have linked all of these to hearing loss. Compared to the general population, people with untreated hearing loss have higher unemployment rates. But with hearing aids, you can re-engage with your loved ones, take an active part in meetings and be confident that you are not “missing anything” being said around you. Once people start wearing them, most find that wearing hearing aids are like glasses – easy, comfortable and vital to your daily life.

Identifying areas of weakness

If you have a hearing loss that warrants amplification, you may be a candidate for hearing aids. In most cases, patients need two aids, also called binaural fit. Is this right for you? Visit our office to get started.
