We also actively participate in the prevention of hearing loss through the fitting of hearing protective devices and noise awareness education. We also supply musician earplugs and swimmers’ ear plugs.
Our clinic fits and programs sophisticated hearing aids and related accessories, including Bluetooth connectivity, to suit all types of hearing losses and lifestyles. All of our diagnostic hearing evaluations are conducted by Doctors of Audiology who are very skilled in helping you choose the level of amplification that would best fit your hearing loss and your budget.
