The team at Soundwave Hearing Care can identify the cause of your hearing loss and give you advice on how to treat or live with your limited hearing. We will provide you with an appointment for a test of your hearing at your convenience. Count on Soundwave Hearing Care for an Audiologist-led hearing test in Calgary, Lethbridge, Grande Prairie, High River and beyond.
At Soundwave Hearing Care, we don’t just perform a simple hearing screening. We perform a complete hearing evaluation because it is the only tool that will fully gauge how the presence of hearing loss is affecting the cognitive and communicative function of the patient. Your diagnostic hearing testing in Calgary is conducted by a member of our experienced clinical team and includes a thorough interpretation of the results and a written report with recommendations and therapy options for you and for your doctor, if needed. Our quick and accurate hearing evaluations give you a snapshot of your hearing thresholds for employment requirements or pilot and commercial driver licensing purposes.
You may think all hearing tests in Grande Prairie and High River are created equal, but there is a huge difference between a hearing screening and a complete hearing evaluation. A hearing evaluation will give you a clear picture of your hearing loss and the information you need to live a better life with limited hearing. See the differences between a hearing screening and a complete evaluation below.
