At your initial appointment

Hearing Assessments

  • Bring your referral if you have one. Medicare rebates are only available with an Ear Nose and Throat Specialist’s referral or a GP Care Plan.
  • Bring someone with you; two sets of ears are better than one.
  • Don’t be afraid  to ask questions of your audiologist.
  • Health Fund Benefits; not many Health Funds cover hearing tests so you will need to check with your fund.

You will receive a copy of your test results and when needed a report will be sent to your referring GP/Specialist.

 

Hearing aid discussion (if required)

The benefits and features of a range of hearing aids will be discussed based on your hearing loss and communication needs.

Never feel  pressured to make a choice, take your time, it is an important decision.
