At Ear To Ear Hearing Solutions, every patient's care begins with a comprehensive Diagnostic Hearing Evaluation. The purpose of the test is to determine the level and degree of potential hearing loss. Wearing a special set of insert earphones, the patient responds when s/he hears a sound. Each ear is tested individually. The test results are reported on an audiogram, which plots the degree of hearing loss on a graph. Dr. Prather then reviews the test outcomes with each patient and makes recommendations for improving the patient's hearing. Family members are welcome to attend the diagnostic review.
