What to Expect at Your First Appointment

When you come to Hometown Hearing for your first appointment you will immediately be greeted by Jacob, our Hearing Instrument Specialist. Upon your arrival we will have you fill out a questionnaire providing us with your personal, family, and medical history. Once your paperwork has been completed then Jacob will bring you back to start the hearing evaluation.

Online Hearing Test

Hearing loss can happen so gradually that it can be difficult to notice at first. If you’re unsure if you have hearing loss and you’re not ready to come into the office just yet, then take our quick online hearing test. This will identify any signs of hearing loss that you may have and will determine if it’s time for you to make an appointment to come see us.

Proud Partner of HearStrong

HearStrong was founded in 2013 with the goal of inspiring a mass hearing healthcare awareness movement. An estimated 48 million Americans experience hearing loss, and 80% of these individuals let it go unaddressed. This could be due to barriers such as social stigmas, financial difficulties, lack of awareness and resources, and more. In response to this need, HearStrong began recognizing and sharing the stories of remarkable people with hearing loss in an effort to empower and inspire others to take control of their hearing health. The HearStrong Foundation recognizes outstanding adults and children with hearing loss and gives them a platform to empower and serve others in need of hearing care. Learn more.
