Check Your Results If you answered yes to 3 or more, a complete audiological evaluation with speech discrimination testing is recommended, to rule out possible hearing loss and tell you precisely how well you are hearing. If you answered yes to 1 or 2 questions, there may be hearing loss present. A hearing screening with an audiologist, will determine if your hearing is within normal range and determine if further testing is needed. Our practice provides free hearing screenings to adults and school-aged children. A screening takes less than 15 minutes. If you would like a screening, just give us a call. If you answered no to all questions but still have some concerns about your hearing, then we invite you to contact Steven J. Cuddy, our clinical audiologist for more information.
