A Thorough Exam Means Getting The "Right" Solution

At Rehder Balance & Hearing Clinic, comprehensive care begins with a thorough hearing exam conducted in a private, sound-isolated booth to eliminate outside noise. Our complete, professional examination includes:

  • An in-depth health history
  • Otoscopic exam to check for earwax and abnormalities of the ear canal
  • Audiometric test of frequency specific sensitivity
  • Speech reception test to determine the lowest volume at which you can hear words
  • Speech recognition to test to evaluate your hearing clarity
  • Immittance test to detect middle ear or eardrum problems
  • Bone conduction test to detect sensory loss and/or any potential medical problems
  • Loudness growth test to determine the range of sounds which are most comfortable to you

Additional Test Procedures When Indicated Include:

  • Otoacoustic emissions test to evaluate Cochlear Function
  • Video nystagmography to assess Vestibular/balance disorders
  • Evoked potential/Auditory Brainstem testing to evaluate auditory nerve and brainstem integrity.
  • Central Auditory Processing evaluations for people with normal hearing acuity but auditory complaints (ie. difficulty in hearing background noise).
  • Tinnitus Assessment and Treatment

Even though we work closely with many referring physicians, anyone can get the individualized care of a quality audiologist by calling Rehder Balance & Hearing Clinic.
