Hearing Tests 
 
Q5: What can I expect during a hearing test at Warwick Hearing Specialists? 
Initial Consultation: Our audiologist will start by discussing your medical history, any hearing concerns, and the symptoms you’ve been experiencing. 
Physical Examination: The audiologist will examine your ears using an otoscope to check for any visible issues such as ear wax buildup or infections. 
Pure Tone Audiometry: You will wear headphones and listen to a series of tones at different pitches and volumes. You will indicate each time you hear a tone. This test measures your hearing thresholds. 
Speech Audiometry: This test evaluates how well you can hear and understand speech. You will listen to and repeat back words spoken at different volume. 
Tympanometry: This assessment checks the function of your middle ear by varying air pressure in the ear canal. It helps identify issues such as fluid in the middle ear or eardrum perforations. 
Results Discussion: After the tests, the audiologist will explain the results and discuss any recommendations or treatment options, such as hearing aids if necessary. 
 
Q6: How long does a hearing test appointment take? 
A6: A comprehensive hearing test appointment typically takes about 45 to 60 minutes. This allows our audiologists enough time to thoroughly assess your hearing and discuss the results. 
 
Q7: Who should get a hearing test? 
A7: We recommend that adults over the age of 50 have a hearing test every two years. However, if you are experiencing hearing loss, tinnitus, or any other hearing-related issues, you should schedule a hearing test as soon as possible. Children aged 5 and above should also have their hearing tested if there are any concerns about their hearing abilities. 
 
EAR WAX REMOVAL

Microsuction: A gentle suction device is used to remove the wax under visual guidance through a microscope. 
Irrigation: Warm water is gently flushed into the ear to dislodge and remove the ear wax. 
Manual Removal: Special instruments are used to manually remove the wax under direct vision. 
Endoscopic Microsuction: An endoscope provides a clear view of the ear canal, allowing precise removal of the wax using microsuction. 
Our audiologists will choose the best method for your specific need
