Our experience and expertise enables you to get optimum benefit from your hearing solution and rehabilitation and we recognise that hearing aids may form only a small part of the right solution for you.
Using the latest technologies, accessories, counselling and other aural rehabilitation methods, we tailor an individual hearing solution and treatment plan to each and every patient. We can expertly fit a wide range of the latest hearing aids available internationally. However we are not aligned to any one manufacturer, giving us the freedom to make sure that we recommend and fit only the product that is best suited to your own individual needs and preferences.
A wide range of accessories are available with many hearing aids today and may be recommended on the basis of your detailed assessment or during your on-going care.
“Can I offer my sincere thanks and appreciation for the total service you provided in fitting my new hearing aids yesterday, from thinking I would never hear my beloved music properly again to enjoying playing my instrument in 24 hrs WOW!”
About your appointment
Prior to your appointment, we will ask you some initial questions to understand the hearing issues that you have. We may also ask you to complete some additional questions by email or online, so that we can address your hearing issues as effectively as possible when you visit us.
On the day of your appointment Dr Carling will review your past medical and hearing history and undertake a clinical examination of your ears before performing a series of tests specifically appropriate to you and your symptoms.
From these tests Dr Carling will then make an expert diagnosis and recommend a hearing management plan. She will discuss this with you in detail before recommending various hearing aid options. These will be shown, explained and demonstrated to you. Once you have chosen your hearing aids, a second appointment will be made for them to be fitted by Dr Carling.
Your initial appointment will usually take 1.5 hours. Please allow approximately 1 hour for your hearing aid fitting appointment.
We encourage you to bring your partner, spouse or a family member to your appointment so that you can discuss your hearing needs, your choice of hearing aids and your future treatment plan together.
