Unbiased, Independent Audiologists
The Hearing Specialist is a completely independent company, meaning we are not affiliated to any particular hearing aid manufacturer.
For our patients, this means that they get entirely unbiased recommendations on the hearing aids that are most suited to their requirements, lifestyle and budget.
We'll never try to upsell something that isn't the perfect fit for you, as our main priority is finding the technology that gives you what you need from your hearing aids.
Our Home Visits Service
At The Hearing Specialist, we're passionate about making hearing tests accessible to everyone. Taking care of your health is a top priority, and should you be concerned about your hearing, it's important to get it checked.
However, we understand that not everybody can safely get to a clinic for a test. More often than not, this will mean that an appointment is never made - leaving the ears to deteriorate even further.
That's why we introduced our home visits service, where we do the travelling so you don't have to. Our home visits service covers Croydon, Wimbledon, Banstead & Sutton, but we may be able to travel further afield if required.
My grandad was struggling with his hearing, The Hearing Specialist came to our house on time explained everything to him and us and the service was fantastic made us feel really comfortable. I highly recommend using The Hearing Specialist for an exceptional service.Google Review
Do I need a hearing test?
Hearing loss happens gradually, and sometimes it can be difficult to realise that you can't hear quite as clearly as you used to.
However, there are some tell-tale signs that you might need your hearing assessed:
- You’re constantly turning the TV volume up
- You struggle to keep up with conversations in noisy environments
- You keep having to ask people to speak up or repeat what they’re saying
- You have trouble talking on the phone
Why are hearing tests important?
In the same way that you visit your optician or doctor, making a hearing test part of your annual health check ups is vital to maintaining your overall health. Hearing loss affects your overall quality of life, with notable impacts on your mental and physical health.
Hearing tests performed by a qualified and professional audiologists can detect any signs of hearing loss, and identify the type of hearing loss you are experiencing in order to recommend the most suitable hearing aid, or advise on an appropriate treatment if necessary.
It's crucial to get your hearing checked annually, as taking a thorough look into the ears during a hearing test can also pick up any other medical issues that could be a cause for concern including ear infections, tinnitus and benign tumours.
