Q. what is an ABR test? and how much does it cost?

A. ABR, or Auditory brainstem response, is a test of the hearing, from the ears to the brainstem that can be conducted without the cooperation of the patient. As such, it's useful in babies and others who can't cooperate.

It basically consists of playing sounds to the patient and recording the electrical waves of the brain. It's generally safe and painless.
