Hearing Tests & Hearing Screening
Before we ascertain that an infant or child has a hearing problem, it is extremely important for us to conduct hearing tests and hearing screening.

This is to ensure that we achieve the most accurate hearing diagnosis for your child, and can prescribe the most suitable treatment thereafter.
