Your initial appointment with us will include a review of your history, a non-invasive ear examination, diagnostic assessment of your hearing and a discussion of any hearing solutions that may be required.
You do not need a referral from your GP to see a hearing aid specialist, and can book an appointment with us today.
If you are experiencing any of the common symptoms of hearing loss you should book an appointment with our hearing specialists. There are a few ways you can prepare for your hearing appointment.
Gathering Your Hearing History
So that we can tailor your personal hearing solution your appointment will begin with us gathering a detailed picture of your lifestyle, hearing needs and motivation to improve your quality of life.
To do this we will go over your history, how your hearing is impacting your everyday life, and review any results from your pre-consultation preparation.
You will then have your hearing tested through a few easy and non-invasive diagnostic assessments that evaluate your hearing sensitivity and response to speech.
The Hearing Test
During your hearing test, you will be asked to listen to a range of sounds. We will then play you sounds starting from a bass tone and working up to treble, asking you say yes when you hear a beep.
Using this test your hearing range will be plotted out and your hearing specialist will determine if you have hearing loss, the type of hearing loss and your options for hearing solutions. We will then explain the results to you, and talk about how your condition will affect you.
Finding Your Device
Your hearing specialist will discuss which type of hearing device is best for you in terms of how much amplification you need, your lifestyle and personal preferences of cosmetic appeal and convenience. There may be a few options of hearings aids that suit you, and together we can decide what is best. Your future requirements will also be taken into consideration.
Hearing Aid Trial
In some cases we can fit you with hearing aids on the same day as your appointment for you to begin your 14-day trial.
Ongoing Maintenance and Support
Once fitted with your hearing aid solution, you hearing specialist will provide you with advice for maintaining your devices. Your hearing aids are designed to be reliable, durable and easy to use, and you will be given tips for preventing problems and getting the best out of them.
You will be booked in for a follow up after your trial to see how your hearing aids work for you and may need to trial other devices to get the perfect solution.
