Frequently asked questions
What should I expect during my initial visit at Space City Audiology?
A typical initial visit at Space City Audiology will consist of having your hearing tested (not just a screen, we want to know more than just "can you hear the beeps"). We will assess your outer, middle, and inner ear function along with your ability to process and recognize speech in various scenarios. Since audiology is the study of hearing and balance, we will also perform a balance screen as a proactive measure. After we test your hearing, we will discuss your personal listening struggles and communication needs to help determine the best individualized treatment plan for you.
Which hearing aid manufacturers do you work with?
We work with every major hearing aid manufacturer. This allows us to provide you with the best hearing aid recommendation for YOU based on your specific needs.
Do you provide audiology services outside of the office?
Yes! Space City Audiology offers mobile and tele-audiology services including:
Hearing treatment consultations
Hearing aid fittings
Hearing aid programming adjustments
Hearing aid care and use counseling
Hearing aid cleanings and minor repairs
What is the difference between a doctor of audiology and a hearing instrument specialist?
The primary difference between a doctor of audiology and a hearing instrument specialist is the extent of his/her training and scope of practice.
