Are you about to have a hearing test?
There are many symptoms which may indicate a wax build up in your ears. These may include:
Yes, it is completely normal. Ear wax production, (also known as cerumen) is a natural part of normal ear function – acting as a self-cleaning mechanism for your ears. Occasionally this mechanism can fail. If it does, may cause your ears to be blocked with war wax.
If you are having any issues with blocked ears, come and see our team of health professionals who will safely, gently and quickly help to unblock your ears by removing your ear wax build up or foreign body from your ear canal.
The procedure may take up to 20 minutes to complete, depending on the amount of ear wax that needs to be removed.
If the wax is difficult to remove, we may recommend the use of waxol (or similar) for a few nights to help soften the wax.
Medicare does not cover this procedure, however a rebate may be claimed from some private health funds. Give your health fund a call to see if you are covered (there is no item number for this procedure).
Our flat Fee is $75 for both of your ears to be cleaned and checked. If we cannot remove all the wax, an appointment will be made for 2-3 days later. You will not be charged for this additional appointment.
We will also offer you a complimentary hearing screening after each appointment to check your hearing.
Please give us a call on 1300 415 718 to book your appointment.
