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. Unsure if we are able to work with your current hearing aids? Give us a call and we will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

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. An individual licensed as a hearing instrument specialist is required at a minimum to obtain a high school diploma, complete minimal practicum hours, and pass an exam. Here at Space City Audiology, you will be cared for by a doctor of audiology. An audiologist is an individual who has completed approximately eight years of collegiate studies. Four of those eight years were spent focused specifically on hearing and balance assessment and treatment.
