Dollarphotoclub 16276482The Hearing Test: Audiogram

An audiogram is necessary to find out the type of hearing loss each person has.  In order to rule out medically treatable conditions, a series of tests will be performed.  At Professional Hearing Center, you will know your results immediately.  These results will be explained in detail and appropriate treatment options will be discussed.

Baseline Audiogram

It is our recommendation that people of any age have a baseline audiogram. Even for people who have no hearing loss, having a baseline audiogram is a great way to track any changes they may experience in the future.  Some medications can cause hearing loss, some viruses, some noise exposure and many other causes can affect one’s ability to hear.  Depending on the results of a baseline evaluation, Dr. Spiller will recommend a follow-up regimen for each patient based on their individual needs.

Occupational Testing

At Professional Hearing Center we offer industrial baseline testing, annual follow-up testing, threshold shift monitoring and hearing protection counseling to those exposed to occupational noise. If you or your employer/employees need more information about our services, please feel free to call our office anytime at 816-331-4327.

Pediatric Testing

We can test children as young as 7 months of age in our VRA (Visual Reinforcement Audiometry) sound booth.  We will condition each child to respond appropriately to tones and stimuli and provide the parents with immediate and accurate information about their hearing.
