Hearing Tests

We provide the most comprehensive Hearing Test Services in the Cork and Kerry region from our Child Development Centre in Clonakilty. If you suspect that your child may have hearing loss or if they have failed a hearing screening at the local school then it might be a good idea to book a hearing test for your child. Hearing can be assessed at any age and no child is too young to be assessed. Hearing tests are available from July 2019 at our centre in Clonakilty, West Cork and can be booked now.

My goal is to provide you with the best possible care, based upon your individual needs. I provide a comprehensive array of services related to evaluation, rehabilitation and prevention of impairment

These services include;

Comprehensive Evaluation
Diagnostic Testing
and Industrial Hearing Screenings

Choosing a professional is one of the most important decisions a hearing impaired person can make. Since hearing aids cannot be prescribed like spectacles, proper recommendations and fitting is highly dependent on the judgment and skill of the professional selecting the instruments.

Following a test, I select and dispense the instruments that best meet your needs. I also provide support and counselling of the patient and service of the hearing aid system. I am always concerned about the person and make recommendations to fit your lifestyle and personal needs.

Following a test, should you require further investigation a referral will be made to a Consultant Ear Nose & Throat, (ENT) Surgeon.

Protection can make a big difference. I can help prevent further deterioration through education about what affects your hearing, as well as the proper use and care of hearing protection devices. Hunter’s earplugs, musicians earplugs and a variety of other custom ear moulds are available
