  • We presently have the ability to test up to 8 people at one time.
  • We ensure testing meets the military school standards for being current and within the required criteria.
  • We monitor Unit statistics for adherence to policy. Coordination of groups or special appointment times for hearing testing may be organized by calling or e-mailing.
  • We assist units with access to MEDPROS and provide training on accessing them.
  • Walk-in hearing testing is available when a technician is available. Patients with Hearing Test appointments on appointment days with the Audiologist have priority.
  • Civilian beneficiaries must coordinate the referral for a hearing test screening through their health care provider.
  • We coordinate follow-up appointments with the Aviano or Landstuhl audiologist.
  • Hearing Protection Education is also provided. The Health Center does not provide hearing protection devices. Please see your unit supply sergeant for ordering.
