I don't know if the BAER is the type of test I had. But, if you have anxiety, heads up they might put you in a box! Someone might have warned the claustrophobic me that for my hearing test they would put me in a little box of a room and shut the large bank vault style door and leave me all alone! Okay, so the tech was on the headset on the other end...but it was all I could do to not freak out and demand to be released. Some of you may recall my story of my first facial....so just a warning if you're claustrophobic.
