What should I expect from my private hearing assessment?
Your hearing assessment will last around 2 hours and it might be helpful to have someone else present during the appointment.
Firstly, I will take a full detailed medical history about your ears.
Then I will carry out an examination of your ears and if there is wax present, I will remove the wax for you.
After this I will then perform a hearing test to check your hearing. This is the process of you listening to a variety of low, mid and high pitched sounds and pressing a button when you hear them.
I will also perform a speech in noise test. This will be done by you repeating a sentence with background noise present.
