What do you do if you think you have a hearing concern?

The very first thing we recommend is to schedule a free hearing screening. A licensed hearing professional at your nearest Beltone location can go through your health and hearing history, and then give you a free hearing evaluation to see if you have a hearing loss or if it is just wax build up.

If we find you have a hearing loss and can help you, you’ll have a variety of hearing choices. Our licensed Hearing Care Specialist will take everything into consideration and help you choose what’s best for you based on your hearing loss, lifestyle and budget. 

You can also try a demonstration model in our office. This way you can hear for yourself what works best for you.

We welcome you to send us an email requesting an appointment for your FREE hearing evaluation.  When doing so, please include the following information:

The best phone number to contact you at

Getting Ready for Your Appointment

Now that you have taken the first step and are booking a hearing evaluation here at Beltone. You are on your way to happier, healthier hearing. But what can you do to make sure you are as prepared as possible for your appointment?

1. Bring a familiar voice

This is an important part of your hearing evaluation. Whether it is a partner, caregiver or family member, having someone whose voice you are familiar with enables us to effectively assess your speech recognition in a real-life scenario.

2. Think of situations in which you struggle

Do you struggle at noisy restaurants? Perhaps when your child speaks to you? Write down a few examples of times when you find it hard to hear. Examples can be difficult to think of on the spot, so preparing them beforehand gives us a clearer idea of how to help.

3. Try to avoid loud noises

Most people know that loud noise can cause issues over time, but fewer of us realize that it can have short term effect too. Try to avoid very loud noises, e.g. those louder that of vacuum cleaner, for a minimum of 16 hours before your evaluation.

4. Stay healthy

Certain types of illness, such as cold and flu can cause a mucus build up in the ear, affecting your ability to hear properly – and our ability to give you an accurate assessment. Please speak to us if you are concerned you may be too ill to be effectively assessed.

5. Rest assured

Remember, there is absolutely no need to worry about your hearing evaluation. We can assure you that our tests are simple and comfortable. We do not use any invasive or painful techniques.  Here at Beltone, your comfort is paramount to us and we will do everything we can to make your hearing evaluation a positive experience.
