A tinnitus evaluation includes comprehensive audiometry, speech in noise testing, tympanometry, acoustic reflexes, otoacoustic emissions and comprehensive tinnitus testing including pitch matching, loudness matching, minimal masking level determination and residual inhibition (suppression) testing.
After your evaluation, your doctor will review a comprehensive treatment plan customized to your needs. Many patients find relief after just a few sessions, however if more comprehensive intervention is necessary, that is also available.
