Well, looking at your audio test results I see no indication of the right and left ear. That would be helpful information for forming an opinion.

I am not sure if the US govt will recognize hearing tests performed by non-ASHA certified, or non-US trained clinician and I know for a fact Bumungrad's audiologist is not an ASHA certified audiologist.

If you do need to work with an ASHA certified, US trained and US licensed Audiologist in Thailand, I do know of 1 such individual.
