Diagnostic Assessment


Have you been referred by your doctor for medical evaluation of your hearing? A thorough medical report is sent back to the referring doctor following this appointment.

To better understand your medical history, we’ll sit down with you for a conversation.Your ears will be examined to make sure there aren’t any visible medical problems. A full battery of tests on your auditory system will be done to see if there are any anomalies that warrant further investigation.

Our qualified specialists will evaluate the test results and give you with an audiological diagnosis report that will include the following information:

  • The severity of the hearing loss (mild, moderate, severe or profound).
  • The nature of the hearing loss (conductive, sensorineural or mixed).
  • The acoustic configuration of the hearing loss (the range of sounds affected).
  • Location of lesion (peripheral, central, outer ear, middle ear, inner ear, neural, central).

The audiological evaluation will assist in determining your future steps, which may include the following:

  • A referral to a medical specialist may be required.
  • Potentially beneficial audiological treatment alternatives (hearing aids, implantable devices, communication training, counselling, or a combination of these).
  • Anticipated limits of any treatment programme and strategies for overcoming them (through family involvement, for example)
