What people say


Mr Brennan, Berkshire

Livingston was my audiologist for 4 years, after being diagnosed with hearing loss.
Throughout, and again now, Livingston has been extremely helpful and professional, recommending the perfect aids for my requirements and assisting with follow-up maintenance and tuning.
I have complete trust in the service and advice provided, and would recommend without hesitation.

Mr Gooch, Berkshire

I've always found Livingston to be very professional and he fully explains everything to you. Hearing services are very competitive in this area and certainly for wax removal they're the best priced.
I have no hesitation in recommending Livingstons Hearing and Vision

Mrs Howes, Berkshire

I was really pleased with Livingston Sengolraj -- he was highly recommended by a friend, and was very professional. Not only was he very through in the testing he did, he was also very good at explaining what he was doing. When he fitted my hearing aids, once again he was both helpful and good at explaining things. I am delighted with the hearing aids and am looking forward to working with Livingston over the next few years.

Do I need a hearing test?

Yes, you do need a test if you answer yes to two or more questions below.

  • Do you feel like people are mumbling?

  • Are you asking your family to repeat what they said?

  • Are you missing phone calls, doorbells, or alarms?

  • Are you struggling to follow conversations in groups?

  • Are people telling you that your television is too loud?

  • Assessment
    Before the procedure, we will usually examine your ears using a video otoscope or microscope to assess the extent and location of the earwax buildup. This examination helps determine if microsuction is the appropriate method for removal.
  • Medical History & consent Form
    You will be asked a range of medical questions to identify if there are any contraindications for the procedure. You will then be asked to sign a consent form.
  • Preparation
    To ensure your comfort and safety during the procedure, you may be asked to sit or lie down, and a protective drape may be placed around your ear to catch any dislodged earwax.
  • Post-Procedure
    After the earwax has been successfully removed, we will usually inspect the ear canal again to ensure all the wax has been cleared. You may immediately notice an improvement in your hearing if the earwax was causing hearing loss
  • Hearing Screening Advise
    After the successful wax removal procedure or if there is no wax you may be offered a hearing screening test to identify if there is any hearing loss. You may be offered our detailed premium hearing test on another day depending on the screening test results.
