Audiology is the science of hearing, balance and related disorders. As an ENT specialist I have close contact with audiologists and they play an essential role in the diagnosis and treatment of many patients I see with hearing concerns.
My nursing staff are trained in performing basic hearing tests and pressure tests (tympanometry) for the ears. In addition to this we are a unique practice in that we have a team of dedicated audiologists on site who are able to do more extensive audiology testing when required. This includes advanced tests of hearing as well as a range of tests to assess the function of the balance (vestibular) system.
Ask us about our audiology services if you would like to know more.
