    Hearing Evaluations

    If you are planning to visit our office here is some introductory information about what to expect during this first session. You most likely will have called us requesting an evaluation because you are curious about your hearing or your physician has referred you to us for a hearing test. When you meet your audiologist, Nina, she will ask you about your current general health and any hearing issues or difficulties that you may be experiencing. Nina will also ask you about your lifestyle and your daily activities as these could be impacted by your hearing status.

    After this introduction to our office, Nina will take you to the sound booth for your hearing evaluation. She will examine your ears with an otoscope (an ear light) to make sure your ears are free of ear wax. This is important as a hearing test cannot be performed if your ears are plugged with ear wax. (If needed, Nina will refer you to a physician for the ear cleaning). If your ears are determined to be free of obstructions you are ready to begin your hearing evaluation.

    A hearing evaluation is the cornerstone of your hearing health wellness program. The evaluation consists of presenting different tonal pitches to your ears at various volume levels to determine the very softest level that your ears can detect these tones. This test is done in a sound proof booth. With these results your audiologist will explain to you the degree of your hearing loss, if there is one, and how it can impact your communication abilities in your life.

    You will learn about the various ways to remedy or improve your hearing abilities based on the results of your hearing test. If it is determined you need to see an ear nose and throat physician for the remedy you will be given a list of physicians to choose from. If it is determined your hearing can be improved with proper amplification you will be given information about the various types of amplification that could possibly help you that would fit your lifestyle and budget. A hearing aid evaluation could be performed if you so choose at this point.

    Tinnitus Treatment

    That ringing, humming, buzzing, whistling sound that you hear in your ears or your head is known as tinnitus. Do you want relief from this symptom that is negatively impacting your life? If you live in the greater Los Angeles-Beverly Hills area, Evolve Hearing Center can help you!

    Tinniuts is very often associated with hearing loss; an estimated 90% of tinnitus sufferers experience some degree of hearing loss. However there are other causes of tinnitus including:

    • Loud sound trauma
    • Ear wax- occlusion
    • Circulatory and/or blood vessel problems
    • Injuries to the head or neck
    • Changes in the middle ear bones, a disease known as Otosclerosis
    • Balance mechanism changes, a disease knows as Meniere’s
    • Medications know to damage the inner ear (ototoxic drugs)
    • The Aging process
    • Acoustic Neuroma (a benign tumor of the 7th or 8th nerve usually affecting hearing & balance).

    Tinnitus can be constant or intermittent and it can be experienced in one or both ears. Some people experience it while sleeping. For the majority of people, tinnitus is a subjective sound which means that only the person who has it can hear it. It can be loud or soft. Tinnitus originates inside the head and the onset may be gradual or sudden.

    It is estimated that about 10% of the adult population in the U.S. (22.7 million Americans), experience tinnitus for more than 3 months. Some of the consequences of tinnitus include:

    • Problems sleeping
    • Physical exhaustion
    • Inability to concentrate
    • Anxiety and depression

    In years past there were few or no successful treatment options for tinnitus sufferers. However, thanks to evolving brain and hearing research and scientific advances in hearing aid technologytoday we have viable tinnitus treatment and management options.

    Hearing aids are helpful for many people who have tinnitus. The better you hear, the less you may notice your tinnitus. Using hearing aids, your brain has other sounds to listen to, making your tinnitus less noticeable.

    At Evolve Hearing Center, we understand that tinnitus can have debilitating consequences on your life. We offer tinnitus treatment and management therapies for patients living in the greater Los Angeles-Beverly Hills and surrounding communities in Southern California.

    Our tinnitus treatment therapies include Oticon’s Tinnitus SoundSuppot, Phonak’s Tinnitus Portforlio, and Widex’s Zen Therapy (WZT). These various systems use small hearing aid-like devices that emit barely audible sound tones, thus driving your focus away from the ringing sound and making it less noticeable to you.
