Hearing test FAQ

Caroline Hogan, Audiologist

My name is Caroline, and audiology is in my DNA. I have always had a keen interest in healthcare, as my sister and my mother are nurses. I love to help people to improve their quality of life and helping people to hear better is extremely rewarding.

I have been working with Hidden Hearing for many years now. We provide a professional, expert service, treating patients with dignity and respect. We earn our patients trust and enjoy lifelong relationships, providing free aftercare services for hearing aid users. I simply love what I do every day. There is such a great pleasure in helping people to hear better.  I have been an audiologist for 11 years and have never once regretted my decision to train as an audiologist.
