Information for GP's

At West Coast Audiology we work closely with GP’s to provide audiological tests important for the diagnosis and treatment of hearing loss.  The welfare of our clients always comes first.  We refer our clients for further medical advice when necessary and we fit hearing aids only when they will be truly beneficial.

Our Audiologists provide GPs with organised, informative and concise reports on the clinical test results of their patients and any rehabilitation options recommended.  Full audiological management is available.
