Meet Our Team of Hearing Specialists

After being greeted to our clinic by Amy or Nicole, you will then be seen by one of our fully qualified and experienced audiologists.

Audiologists are hearing specialists who are qualified to test hearing and assess the nature of disorders in this area. They’re responsible for the non-medical management and rehabilitation of hearing loss and associated disorders of communication, including the provision of hearing aids.

Our audiologists have all met state and national qualification requirements, attaining the highest level of preparation for health care service delivery. Our patients can be confident that our team all hold post graduate University degrees, making them extremely qualified to administer comprehensive hearing health care services. They all hold current Certificates of Clinical Practice, are full members of Audiology Australia – the industry professional body – and maintain a keen focus on continuing their education, ensuring they are always abreast of current technologies, advances and practices in the field.
