In a busy, noisy world hearing loss is not something that should be associated with age. It is important to get your ears checked regular to detect any changes in your hearing or your general ear health but more so if you start to notice difficulty hearing conversations in noisy environments, asking others to repeat themselves or receive complaints from family members about your hearing. Our team of audiologist employ various testing strategies, aimed to determine whether someone has normal sensitivity to sounds. If hearing loss is identified, we determine which portions of hearing are affected, to what degree, and where the lesion causing the hearing loss is found. This can be a tender subject to approach with concern for many and is a journey that Rob and Bethany can assist with. For any queries, concerns, we welcome you to pop in or book your first consultation with The Ear Place today. Your Hearcare Specialists.
