Your First Visit: History and Physical Examination
Our audiologists assess every component of your hearing and balance system in order to identify the cause of your hearing, dizziness or balance disorder.
During your audiological evaluation, our audiologists will review your symptoms and perform a physical examination, along with a complete audiometric evaluation.
During your balance evaluation, an audiologist will review your Patient History and Dizziness Questionnaire, along with the Dizziness Handicap Assessment you completed prior to your appointment. Following a review of your medical history, the audiologist will perform a complete diagnostic vestibular and balance evaluation.
Following the assessment, you'll receive a working diagnosis and appropriate therapy approach. The test results determine how components of your balance systems are functioning and which systems may be involved.
