FAQs

Our audiologist is here to help with your hearing and listening. The first thing an audiologist will do, is check your hearing. They then manage and treat any issues, including tinnitus and other external noises you may be experiencing. If you have a hearing aid, our audiologist can fit and tweak these.

For your children, our audiologist can check their hearing and provide education and support for any difficulties they may be having.

Wait times can vary. We encourage anyone with a sudden perceived hearing loss to speak with the audiologist immediately.

Call 03 9810 3000 to book an appointment.
