What's Involved in Our Full Tinnitus Assessment

At the Liverpool Hearing Centre, we understand that not all patients require the same approach. That’s why our initial assessment and consultation focuses on you as an individual. We aim to thoroughly understand your tinnitus, your lifestyle, and your needs.
