What Will My First Appointment Be Like?
As we are a specialty clinic, we will need a referral from your primary care physician prior to scheduling an appointment with one of our physicians. We will then work on gathering your past medical records, including prior hearing and balance testing, imaging (MRI/CT), and recent progress notes from your current physician and any specialists you’ve seen. Once we’ve gathered all your information, we will schedule you for an appointment. Please allow 2-3 weeks for this process to be completed.
On the day of your appointment, please allow at least 15-20 minutes extra for parking. Upon check-in, you will be asked to complete the New Patient Paperwork, if you have not yet completed it online.
During your appointment, you will start with a hearing test and tympanogram. These tests will provide the physician with a baseline for diagnosing and treating your medical condition. You will then meet with the physician to discuss the problems you are having with your ears. The physician will perform a variety of in-office testing and may order follow-up testing to occur on another day. Those tests might include imaging, balance testing, additional hearing testing, and auditory brainstem response testing. After your testing is completed, you will have another appointment with the doctor to discuss the test results and develop an individualized treatment plan.
