How We Test for Tinnitus
At Twin Rivers Hearing Health, Dr. Uchmanowicz is an expert in tinnitus and treatment solutions. She can successfully diagnose and help you manage your tinnitus, so you can experience relief. We offer tinnitus evaluations to determine what sound you are hearing and what may have caused it. We will test you in our sound booth, testing different pitches to determine the type of sound you are hearing. After the tinnitus evaluation, then Dr. Uchmanowicz will go over some solutions that will help you.
In addition to testing for tinnitus, we offer solutions to help you manage your symptoms and experience relief. Whether it’s using a hearing aid with a sound therapy feature for tinnitus relief or something else, we’ll be able to provide you with the best solution so you no longer have to let tinnitus control your life.
