Test Your Hearing in our Convenient Upper East Side Office

Manhattan Internist Marina Gafanovich Provides Complete Hearing Diagnostics…

…as Part of a Routine Physical Exam or by Request

Hearing tests can be performed in our NY doctor’s offices as part of a physical exam, or by request.  Hearing tests are very important tests because they oftentimes catch problems that could lead to misdiagnosis in other areas.  For example, there have been studies that found many Alzheimer’s tests were faulty assessments due to the patient’s being unable to hear the questions being asked of them correctly.  In the school systems, students have been incorrectly “typed” because of poor hearing.

We use pure tone audiometry tests to evaluate the sounds traveling through the ear canal.

 

New York physician, Dr. Gafanovich may use other diagnostics, such as speech or word reception tests, as well as, whisper tests in the evaluation process.

 

If further testing is required, she can also provide a physician’s referral to a hearing specialist.

Call us today (212) 249-6218 to schedule an appointment to have your hearing checked or to request a comprehensive physical exam.
