What to Expect

Acknowledging you have a problem is typically the most intimidating part of seeking treatment. But when it comes to hearing loss, attending your hearing appointments can be just as overwhelming and nerve-wracking.  

Here are Pattillo Balance and Hearing Center, we understand. Accepting you have hearing loss is a big first step and getting help can be just as big of a step. That’s why we want to pull back the curtain and reveal what you can expect from our clinic. That way, you can attend your appointment feeling comfortable and confident. 

Your First Hearing Appointment at Pattillo Balance and Hearing Center 

So, first things first, congratulations! You’ve taken your first steps towards better hearing. Pattillo Balance and Hearing Center is proud to offer a comprehensive suite of hearing products and services designed to help you hear your best. But before we can do that, we need to get to know your individual hearing situation. 

We get to know you at Pattillo Balance and Hearing Center 

At the start of your first appointment with us, our specialist will get to know you and your unique hearing challenges. It’s important to understand how your hearing impacts your life so that you and your specialist can work together to find a solution.  

Next, your hearing specialist will conduct the “exam” part of your appointment. This part will include a hearing test and a comprehensive examination of your ears. 

First, your hearing specialist will perform both a physical and video examination of your ears. Sometimes, physical factors like earwax accumulation, trauma and infection can trigger hearing loss. This comprehensive examination will help your provider identify or rule out any physical causes of hearing loss.  

Then, you’ll take a hearing test. For the hearing test, you’ll listen to a series of sounds and auditory cues. This part of the appointment assesses your ability to hear sounds, your sensitivity to them, and your ability to comprehend what sounds you do hear.  

We discuss treatment options 

After your test, your hearing specialist will discuss your results and how your hearing difficulties relate to your results. They will also answer any questions you may have. 

At this point, if you do have hearing loss, your hearing specialist will get to work creating your unique treatment plan. They will present you with their treatment plan recommendations, staying mindful of your aesthetic preferences and your budget. 

And if they don’t detect any hearing loss, they’ll schedule your next routine hearing test to continue monitoring your hearing health. 

Nervous about your first appointment? You’re welcome to bring a relative and loved one who‘s familiar with your hearing situation, especially if they can bring you additional peace of mind. They can help answer questions you don’t have an answer for, or even ask questions you didn’t think to ask. Our hearing specialists are more than happy to accommodate our patients and their comfort levels.
