AUDITORY BRAINSTEM RESPONSE (ABR) TESTING
The ABR test is a non-invasive procedure that requires little or no participation from you. Electrodes which rest on the surface of the skin are placed in/ around the ear canal and on top of the head. A loud click is presented to the ears and responses are recorded automatically. The test takes approximately one hour. If you have any questions, you may call the office and speak with an audiologist.
We are happy to bill your insurance and urge you to contact your insurance representatives to be sure any required authorizations have been processed before arriving for the test.
If it is necessary to cancel or change your appointment, PIEASE CALL 24 HOURS in advance. Failure to cancel your appointment may result in a $50 fee charged to you.
