Our Process

^
01

Initial assessment

Your first visit to Drummond Hearing will start with an initial discussion with Scott, to gain an understanding of your personal hearing situation and requirements. This helps us build your individual management plan to achieve your hearing goals.

02

Examination

We then carry out a number of examinations and tests. First we perform Video Otoscopy, an examination of the ear using a camera to check the health of the ear canal and ear drum. Next is a hearing test called Pure Tone Audiometry, this is the main test used to determine your minimum hearing levels. Finally, Tympanometry will test the middle ear function. We can determine if there’s any pressure abnormalities in the ear, or if you have any fluid blocking the middle ear.

Results

We’ll talk you through the results and discuss the options available to treat your hearing loss, such as recommending the most suitable hearing aid, or advice on appropriate treatment if necessary

04

Hearing Aid fitting

If hearing aids are required we’ll individually program them to ensure you can hear at your best. This is a 60 minute consultation where we fully explain how to use and maintain your new hearing aids. We’ll fine tune the aid using Real Ear Measures (REMs) to measure its performance once fitted to your ears. We then check you’re happy and comfortable with the sound.

The second half of the appointment involves getting acquainted with the new hearing aids. We’ll spend time talking you through how to use the aids so you feel confident and get the most out of them.

Hearing Aid follow up & On-going aftercare

As you become accustomed to your new hearing aids, we’ll make fine tune adjustments to ensure it’s all working perfectly over 2 or 3 follow up appointments.

Our inclusive aftercare service offers peace of mind, further check-ins if you need help with any questions or repairs. Additionally, we’ll invite you back for an annual hearing assessment.
