What can I expect when seeing an Audiologist for the first time?
You will be greeted by one of our friendly, fully trained reception team and introduced to your Senior Audiologist who will assess the health of your ears.
Your clinician will take a medical case history, this means asking you some questions about your general health and in particular about your ears and your hearing. They will also ask you about various hearing situations to get an idea of how your everyday life might be affected by your hearing.
Your Audiologist will then carry out a number of tests of your hearing to find out exactly how well you are hearing.
They will do this by presenting some sounds to you through different sets of headphones and if necessary, testing the hearing levels of each ear in isolation from the other.
Your Audiologist will complete their comprehensive examination by checking the pressure within the ears as well as testing how well you may be hearing speech sounds in background noise.
Once completed, your Audiologist will have a full picture of how well you are hearing and be able to offer advice on the next steps.
If we feel that we can help, and if you would like to hear better the Audiologist will discuss your options and all of the possible solutions.
Whilst there is no obligation to buy, if you feel you would like to try hearing aids, we will find the most suitable solution for you and your budget.
"The quality of hearing aids is immeasurably better than those provided by the NHS. The care and service provided by House of Hearing has added greatly to my quality of life; in daily life, concerts, theatre, etc. I very much value the facility to 'drop-in' for checks as and when necessary."
"Regular visits to deal with the build up of wax in my ears has been of great help and given great comfort. The unexpected (to me) discovery of an infection and subsequent treatment by Melanie was very timely and avoided more serious consequences. Much impressed by friendly and helpful staff on all visits."
“At House of Hearing it is not only the friendliness and warmth of welcome that meets you at the door on every occasion, but the technical expertise of the audiologists. They deliver a professional audiology service with integrity and compassion and have dignity and respect at the heart of their business.
Thank you seems so inadequate, but all I can say is:
Thank you House of Hearing for letting me live my life.”
"I very highly recommend the House of Hearing. They are completely focussed on finding the best possible hearing aids for each client’s particular needs, and to this end nothing is too much trouble. The staff are all very friendly and helpful, and one is made to feel part of the House of Hearing family. I can’t praise them highly enough, and in particular Louise, who couldn’t have done more for me”.
"Service and afterservice is great - very professional wax removal. Also very caring."
