Your time at the TOSH Hearing and Balance Center will vary based on your individual needs. But here are some basic tips to help you prepare for your visit.

Most comprehensive balance assessments typically last about two hours. We encourage you to have someone accompany you to and from the appointment.

You will also be requested not to take certain medications 48 hours prior to your appointment. Consult your physician before discontinuing any prescribed medication.

Contact lenses and eye make-up are discouraged during parts of the testing. For balance rehabilitation appointments, please wear comfortable shoes and clothes — your walking and strength capacity will probably be assessed.

Scheduling your Appointment

Our services generally require a physician’s referral, order, or request. We encourage you to go through your doctor to obtain a referral or request prior to scheduling an appointment. Once you have a doctor's order, you or your physician's office can call us to schedule an appointment.

Billing and Insurance

Our services are covered by most insurance plans, but we recommend that you talk to your insurance provider to learn what is covered by your plan. Hearing aids often are not covered by insurance, but you may have some benefits available. It is best to consult your insurance provider.
