Hearing Screening Performed in Orlando, FL

Hearing Screening Orlando FLYour hearing is a vital part of your health. Often imperceptible at first, hearing loss can develop gradually over time, and it can affect you at any age. As a member of Optimum Direct Care, you can receive basic hearing screening at our office in Orlando, Florida. Using the latest technology, our board-certified family practice physician, Dr. Toni “Muzzi” Muzzonigro, can quickly and thoroughly assess the state of your hearing at any time.

When Should You Have a Hearing Screening?

Good hearing results from a complex process that depends on the optimal function of many intricate parts. Tiny hair cells inside your inner ear pick up sound wave vibrations and translate them into nerve signals that your brain interprets as sounds. Permanent hearing loss occurs when those tiny hair cells are damaged. Additionally, temporary hearing loss can result from a buildup of ear wax or fluid in the inner ear, exposure to loud noise, or certain medications.

If you are experiencing any symptoms of hearing loss, such as difficulties in understanding speech, hearing telephone conversations, or distinguishing sounds from background noise, you should request a hearing screening. These symptoms can have multiple causes, and a hearing test is the first step toward diagnosing the underlying issue.

What Happens During a Hearing Screening?

At Optimum Direct Care, your hearing screening may include a pure-tone test, in which you’ll be asked to wear headphones and signal whenever a certain sound is heard, or a speech-recognition test, in which Dr. Muzzi will check whether you can hear spoken words clearly at different volumes and frequencies. These basic hearing tests are “pass-fail;” if you have a problem hearing any of the sounds or words, Dr. Muzzi can refer you to an audiologist or another specialist for follow-up testing and evaluation.

If you’re a member of Optimum Direct Care and you’re concerned about hearing loss, you can consult with Dr. Muzzi in Orlando, FL, today. And, if you’re not yet a member, ask us about membership, which includes a comprehensive range of primary healthcare services, including hearing screening.

“My husband and I are big fans of Dr. Toni Muzzonigro and ODC. She takes great time and care in both listening to us and explaining medical issues. We didn’t get this when we were part of an HMO or PPO healthcare network. For those rare emergencies, I can reach her after hours and receive an immediate response. We also like that she is not totally westernized in her viewpoints and will give holistic advice. Erin and the staff are amazing. They are warm and welcoming. You don’t feel like a number when you visit ODC. Love them!”

“My husband and I were in search of a new physician when my neighbor mentioned that we should meet Dr Toni Muzzinigro who was a “Direct Primary Care” physician. We were not familiar with the term and were very intrigued. We made an initial appointment with her and learned so many things that we didn’t think existed anymore. Her main focus is on the patient and not the insurance companies! When she doesn’t have to worry about the bureaucracy and red tape of insurance companies, she has so much more time to listen to the patient and come up with a truly great level of care. The patient comes first and foremost. Our initial appointment was so thorough. She wanted to know every aspect of our past records. I felt like she really cared about us and her main goal was to keep us as healthy as possible. During our annual appointments, Dr. Muzzi schedules enough time to go over every concern you may have. Her explanations of test results are very thorough, and she is very knowledgeable of up to date medical breakthroughs. There have been some times during the year that we needed a doctor’s advice quickly. She is available to us basically 24/7. You can get in touch with her via phone, text, or video conferencing. Many things can be handled in a quick and timely manner. However, if there is a need to see her personally, getting in to see her doesn’t take weeks. Usually, you can make an appointment the very next day. How comforting is it to know that your doctor is always available to you and truly cares about your wellbeing! That is worth its weight in gold! Her staff are an added bonus! They run the office efficiently and take care of any other needs we may have. Another great advantage is that Dr. Muzzi has a network of specialists, labs, and resources available to us and at a discounted rate and free generic prescriptions. Personally, we like the fact that someone can help us navigate the medical system and direct us in the right direction. I simply can’t say enough. Dr. Muzzi has become our doctor as well as a good friend. She will always have our best interest at heart and her main goal is to provide the highest level of care. We are so thankful to have found Dr. Muzzi and Optimum Direct Care.”
