Only the Best for Your Ears The test is completed in a state-of-the-art sound booth using earphones and other types of noninvasive diagnostic instruments.

Keeping Up with Your Hearing Changes As we get older, hearing changes can occur quickly, we recommend that individuals over 50 receive regular hearing screenings at three-year intervals. If you wear hearing aids, it’s important to have your hearing checked even more regularly to ensure that your hearing aids are properly adjusted. It is common for hearing difficulties to go unrecognised for considerable lengths of time.
Effective Tinnitus Treatment Tinnitus (or “ringing in the ears”) can reach distressing levels that may interfere not only with your hearing, but also your peace of mind. We offer proven tinnitus therapies that begin with diagnostic and self-assessment tests to determine both the cause of the tinnitus and its psychological impact. Diagnostic tests determine if the cause of the tinnitus is related to middle-ear or inner-ear problems, as well as possible auditory nerve abnormalities. These tests also help determine the tone or pitch of the tinnitus and its volume to help us arrive at the best management option. These options may include a review of medications you’re currently taking, sound-masking devices, hearing aids, or Tinnitus Retraining therapy (TRT) — there are even dietary changes that may help alleviate your symptoms….MORE INFO
