for Hearing loss

Hearing loss
Suggested Pre-Referral Evaluation and Management Guidelines Evaluate for otitis media with effusion, cerumen, or other physical examination findings. Patients who fail hearing assessments at the school, primary care office or at the health department should first be scheduled for formal audiogram at a University of Michigan facility. Patients with evidence of hearing loss require medical evaluation in Pediatric Otolaryngology.
Suggested Additional Test/Management Prior to Specialty Visit Audiogram and speech/language evaluation as appropriate.
Patient Education/Information (includes preps)  
Appointment Timeframe For urgent audiology appointments, contact the division of Audiology. Physician appointments will be scheduled for one week after formal audiogram to allow time for cancellation when the audiogram is normal. We discourage delaying the hearing test in order to wait for a coordinated (same day) otolaryngology clinic appointment.
