A hearing aid is a miniaturised amplifying device worn at the ear to assist people with hearing loss. Hearing aids are part of a hearing rehabilitation program. They require personalised fine-tuning and ongoing maintenance support to achieve optimal results.
Our Melbourne-based hearing clinic provides a patient-centred service that is respectful of individual patient preferences, needs and values. We believe that our patients should be given the necessary information and guidance to make their own hearing aid decisions.
We provide hearing assessments and a wide range of hearing aid services.
We also receive many enquiries with regard to successful hearing aid fitting from both the medical profession and hearing aid users wanting a second opinion on their current hearing aids. It seems that despite the rapidly changing improvements in hearing aid technology, too many hearing aids are used infrequently in the wider community. This often results in disappointment at the level of benefit obtained.

We recommend an annual review of your hearing levels to check for any changes in hearing. In this way, adjustments can be made to ensure your hearing aids keep matching your hearing loss. You are encouraged, however, to arrange a hearing assessment at any time if you suspect a change in your hearing has occurred.
A build-up of wax in your ear canals can damage your hearing aids, as well as affect hearing aid performance. An increase in feedback from your hearing aid(s) may indicate that wax removal is required.
You will need to ensure your hearing aids are well maintained.
