Hearing & Brain Centers of New England is committed to the highest standard in hearing care. You can’t receive the best hearing care, however, unless your audiologist correctly diagnoses your needs.

This FREE initial diagnosis helps to provide a complete picture of your unique hearing profile.
What Is the Difference Between a Hearing Test & a Dr. Darrow, Ph.D., Approved Hearing Test & Consultation?
A hearing test typically plays a sound at different volumes and asks you whether you can hear it or not. However, this doesn’t provide a complete picture of how you hear. It tells us even less about the best way for us to help you.
A Dr. Darrow, Ph.D., Approved Hearing Test & Consultation, on the other hand, gathers information about far more than what you hear. It also considers how you hear and why you hear the way that you do.
What Does a Dr. Darrow, Ph.D., Approved Hearing Test & Consultation Involve?
When you visit our hearing center, your audiologist in Worcester, MA, will conduct a thorough consultation of your hearing. Your free hearing consultation will use our state-of-the-art diagnostic technologies to measure your ability to hear in quiet environments, noisy situations, and when multiple speakers are talking at the same time. In addition, we will be able to scientifically measure the size and shape of your ear canal and better understand how sounds are traveling through your ear to your auditory system, including your brain’s ability to process sounds. Your consultation includes factors such as:
- Your hearing potential
- Ability to hear in quiet environments
- How you understand in noisy situations
- Clarity of hearing with multiple people speaking at the same time
- Impact of size and shape of your ear canal on hearing
Gathering a Complete Picture of How You Hear
Invisible hearing aids come with wireless options custom fitted to your exact needs and unique ear canal shape.
During your initial consultation, we will want to know about your history of noise exposure, medical history, other health factors, and family history. We’ll also want to know about your typical social environment, how you manage different hearing situations, and how you are dealing with hearing issues in your life. As your appointment approaches, it’s a good idea to starting thinking about these questions.
We recommend you bring a spouse or family member to the consultation, as they can give important feedback on when you’re having difficulties. This information is helpful in developing the best solution for your unique hearing needs.
