What to Expect (Part 2)

General, What to Expect

Did you know that we are in-network providers for Medicare, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Cigna?  We are also preferred providers for TruHearing and Amplifon.  Carlisa, our Financial Coordinator, is here to help communicate with insurance companies and make sure that you know what to expect.

New patients typically begin with a consultation – just a sit down visit with Dr. Cristobal to discuss what experiences and goals you may have.  Bringing a family member or the person you talk to the most can be very helpful, as he or she may understand what you are missing even more than you do!

Once we have an understanding of your goals for the visit, we often proceed to an evaluation of the ears.  We will look in the ear canals for wax that may interfere, appearance of the eardrum, and any notable anatomy. We see many different ears on a daily basis, and your anatomy contributes to how you hear!
