Before your appointment
Consider the situations, places, activities where you are having difficulty hearing. We recommend you bring a friend or family member to the hearing test appointment to help note important details and instructions.
Your comprehensive hearing test
Getting to Know You
We begin the hearing check appointment by talking with you to find out how we can help. We'll listen closely to your concerns and needs. We'll ask you some questions to gather information on your general health, occupation, and the important aspects of your lifestyle, social activities and interests.
Our audiologists will administer your hearing test to determine whether you have any hearing loss (and if so to work out the type and extent). Our tests are highly accurate and build a clear picture of your current hearing. The tests are painless and will involve you wearing headphones that play tones in one ear at a time. You will be asked to indicate when you hear a tone.
From the results, we can determine at what level you can hear different sounds, but especially the level at which you understand speech (in both noisy and in quiet environments).
Finding the right solution
We will explain your test results and identify whether you have any hearing loss. If you do, we'll discuss treatment options, which range from communication strategies, hearing aids and other assistive devices, to a referral to another medical specialist if warranted. We will answer any questions you may have about your hearing loss.
If a hearing aids device recommended, we will guide you in choosing the best product to suit your hearing loss, lifestyle, preferences and budget. Every person's hearing is different, and it takes an expert audiologist to determine your unique needs. Enjoy your active lifestyle and golden years now.

Before you buy a hearing aid you can trial one and get to experience the hearing aids before you take it home for good.
