When Was The Last Time That You Had Your Hearing Tested?

One of our biggest frustrations as San Antonio’s leading team of doctors of audiology is that as a nation, we all regularly have our teeth checked, our cholesterol tested, and our blood pressure tested – but rarely do we consider to have our hearing tested.

This means that we often see patients when it’s too late and are tasked with preventing their hearing loss from worsening rather than being able to catch a hearing loss early and enable the patient to maximize their hearing health.

With the latest statistics showing that 1 in 8 Americans have a hearing loss, it’s inevitable that you or a loved one will be experiencing signs of hearing loss, whether today or in the near future.

At Audicles, our team has been caring for the San Antonio’s hearing health since 1944, caring for thousands upon thousands of patients and generations of families.

Our big message since the day we opened our doors has always been that if you believe that you or a loved one are experiencing signs of hearing loss, then come and have your hearing tested.

The sooner we can treat it, the sooner we can care for it.

To schedule your comprehensive hearing test, simply call us at 210-820-0525.

What Happens at a Hearing Assessment?

1. Let's Get to Know You

The first part of your hearing assessment is what they don’t train in school – it’s looking you in the eye and having a heartfelt conversation so that we can get to understand you.

What are the reasons that bring you to us? What is bothering you? How is your hearing impacting your day-to-day life?

Having this conversation allows us to understand you, understand what your biggest frustrations are, and allows us to tailor our approach to your hearing care.

2. Let's Have a Look in Your Ears

The first stage of your hearing assessment is to have a look in your ears using an otoscope.

Sometimes we find that there is a build-up of earwax that is causing hard of hearing and on a few occasions, we’ve found that further medical treatment is required.

But we’re taking a look to ensure everything looks healthy and there’s nothing that is clearly blocking your ear canals.

3. Start Your Hearing Assessment

You’ll take a seat in our sound booth (it’s like your own personal recording studio!) – you’ll wear some headphones and we’ll play a range of sounds at different frequencies. 

All you have to do is let us know when you hear a sound.

This allows us to measure what frequencies that you can hear and the frequencies that you can’t hear.

It’s quick, it’s non-invasive, and the results are available immediately.

4. Plot Your Audiogram Results

You’ll then sit back down with one of our doctors of audiology to plot your results on an Audiogram and discuss the outcome of your hearing assessment.

Often we find that your hearing is perfectly fine, we thank you for visiting us, and you’re invited to book your next hearing assessment for the following year.

But in the cases where we discover that you have a hearing loss, we’ll discuss your options in a friendly, relaxed environment and explain how Audicles can help.

What Was Betty's First Experience at Audicles Like ...
“My first sign of hearing loss was gradually realizing that I couldn’t hear and was missing too much. My first impressions of Audicles were that I would recommend them, they had a good reputation and local. I knew that I needed help and found them very easy to work with, very thorough and very likable. Hearing aids have impacted my life a great deal, I was missing too much of what was going on. My advice to anybody considering visiting Audicles would be that they’re an excellent choice and I think they would be very happy with them.”

What Would Brian Rate Audicles Out of 10? ...
“I first realized I had signs of hearing loss in the early 90’s, my biggest fear at the time was having to wear hearing aids and feeling old and deaf. I went to visit Audicles and if I had to rate my first impressions on a scale of 1 to 10 I would give them a 12+. From day one of having my hearing aids, everything changed, when I take them off the world goes to only 50% hearing, so they really have positively impacted my life. I always recommend Audicles so if you are considering visiting, I would highly recommend and refer Audicles and Tracey Board.”

Dr. Watson’s passion to help kids hear better was very heartwarming ...
“My first signs of hearing loss started in 3rd grade, I had problems with my teacher, which in turn led to having a hearing test, which found high frequency hearing loss in my left ear. Audicles made me feel very comfortable right from the start and Dr. Watson’s passion to help kids hear better was very heartwarming, enough to keep me as a patient for 30+ years. My hearing aids have become a true blessing as I have gotten older, if you are considering visiting Audicles, don’t wait! They truly go above and beyond to help you.”

What Happened at 4 Year Old Hunter's First Appointment ...
“Hunter was just four years old when we found out he had a profound hearing loss in both ears and as his parents we were so worried Hunter would have to live with this disability and would always be considered different. As soon as his hearing aids were turned on, he ran to the window and said “trucks.” He could hear the traffic for the first time. When we got home to his Memi’s house, he could hear the peacocks and he was so excited … it was priceless. The impact hearing aids have had on Hunter’s life is incredible, Hunter says “I am able to live a normal life and communicate easily with my family and friends. I love to hunt and fish, which are two things I can do better when I can hear.” For anybody considering visiting Audicles, we would not consider taking Hunter anywhere else, they are the most caring people you will ever meet. We love Dr. Board and all of the staff, they are extremely helpful and welcoming at all times.”

She Always Made Me Feel Like I Belonged ...
“I was only two when signs of hearing loss were detected so I don’t remember my first appointment, but one of my earliest memories was visiting Dr. Jane with my grandpa. She always made me feel like I belonged and always greeted me with a smile and a hug. My first impressions of Audicles were awesome, I remember sitting in the hearing booth thinking I was in a spaceship! The impact hearing aids have had on my life is indescribable, I would not be where I am without the help of Audicles, Dr. Jane went above and beyond to help me. I would say to anybody considering visiting Audicles, what are you waiting for?”

There is Never a Better Time to Do It Than The Present ...
“I noticed the first signs of hearing loss at work, as I work with children in my teaching job, I found it harder and harder to hear them. My family were also giving me a hard time about the TV volume. I was so ready to increase my quality of life and not miss anything so I had no fears about visiting Audicles for my first appointment. I was made to feel right at home! They were professional, kind, patient and explained everything. Hearing aids have impacted my life in a big way, I can hear my grandchildren. I have been able to use mics and the technology offered for a variety of purposes was all for the good. If you are considering visiting Audicles, just do it! There is never a better time than the present. What do you have to lose?”

Wearing hearing aids has positively impacted my life as I can hear things now that I did not realize I was missing.
