When you come in for a hearing test, the first thing we’ll do is discuss your hearing health history and medical health history. We want to find out what symptoms or medical issues may be related to your hearing loss. Learning your hearing health history will help us pinpoint the cause of your hearing loss, and look for any medical or genetic causes for your hearing loss.
We’ll ask you about any family history of hearing loss. We will also ask if you have had a head trauma or injury that could impact your hearing. We may ask you about exposure to noise in your professional life, or during leisure activities. Noise induced hearing loss is more common than ever before, and knowing if you’ve been exposed to dangerously loud sounds will tell us more about your unique hearing loss.
