If you’ve noticed that your hearing has changed, then you should have a hearing evaluation.
Unlike eye exams, there is no standard for periodic exams.
Instead, people have their hearing checked when they become aware that they’re unable to hear as well as before.
Our doctor of audiology, Dr. John Folmar, will perform your hearing evaluation and provide you his expert assessment of your hearing capability. Dr. Folmar has more than 18 years of experience in the industry and has performed hundreds of evaluations.
TAKE AN ONLINE HEARING TEST
If you think you may be experiencing hearing loss, take this online hearing test to determine whether or not you should have your hearing examined by Peninsula Hearing Services.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR HEARING EVALUATION
A thorough hearing examination is the first step in determining if you do in fact have hearing loss. Test results allow us to recommend the best treatment.
Dr. Folmar will ask you some questions to gain an understanding of why you’re presently concerned about your hearing and will look inside your ear canal with a microscope. This will take 5 or 10 minutes.
You’ll go through a series of tests with the latest in modern hearing evaluation technology. This will take about 15 minutes.
Dr. Folmar will share the results of your hearing test with you. Then, he’ll make a recommendation if next steps are appropriate. This will take about 10 minutes.
If hearing devices are recommended, then you can either discuss them at that time with Dr. Folmar or request a new appointment to learn about your options for improving your hearing with new hearing devices. Time varies.
Total time investment = about 40 minutes.
