One of the questions we get is “What does the hearing test look like when you come in your appointment?”
Initially, we really want to take a look at the human auditory pathways. There are three parts to the pathway, the outer, the middle, and the inner part of the ear.
So let’s talk about the first one, the outer part of the ear. That really takes a good inspection. Looking down the pathway we want to make sure the whole area is clear and clean and we want to see a healthy eardrum to make sure there’s no obstruction not allowing sound to get down where it needs to go.
