Dr. Karen McQuaide, Audiologist at the Becker Ear, Nose & Throat Center in New Jersey now offers patients and prospective patients a preliminary Online Hearing Screening which may help them determine if they have hearing loss and should seek a formal diagnosis. The screening addresses the main components of hearing loss, including tinnitus, a sense of a low-volume environment, pain, and other issues. When patients answer “Yes” to any of the questions in the screening, it is indicative of some degree of hearing loss.
The new hearing test is a convenient telemedicine option that allows patients to gain important information about their health without traveling to the Ear, Nose & Throat Center. After completing the test, individuals can schedule an appointment at the Center with any concerns. Dr. McQuaide can perform additional tests, make a diagnosis, and create a treatment plan for patients who require additional follow-up.
Some solutions to hearing loss include the use of hearing aids, which Dr. McQuaide describes in full on the same page as the screening. Before coming into the office, those who suspect that they have hearing loss can read a comprehensive guide to restoring this important sense. With the proper devices, hearing aids can improve a patient’s ability to interact with the world. During an audiology appointment, patients can also learn different ways to preserve their existing hearing and prevent further loss.
