Appointment Review

Our day typically starts with reviewing appointments and preparing the necessary equipment for testing and evaluations. The day ahead is full of a mix of hearing tests, hearing aid evaluations, fittings, and follow up appointments. As part of our commitment to personalized care, we take the time to fully understand each patient's concerns and goals before conducting any assessments.

Patient Consultations

When patients arrive for their appointments, our staff greets them with a warm smile and guides them through the process. When we perform hearing tests, we conduct a comprehensive evaluation of their hearing abilities using state-of-the-art technology. This involves performing a series of tests to determine the type and extent of hearing loss, as well as assessing other factors like speech understanding and tinnitus.

Hearing Aid Evaluations

Once we have gathered all the necessary information, our Toronto audiologists analyze the results and discuss them in detail with the patient. We thoroughly consider the patients lifestyle and any limitations that they may have to optimize their hearing health. We take the time to address any concerns or questions they may have and collaborate with them to develop a customized hearing treatment plan that meets their specific needs. This may involve recommending hearing aids, assistive listening devices, or exploring other communication options, such as communication strategies and captioning.



Fitting appointments are an exciting part of the day for us as well as our patients as that is when we deliver the hearing aid(s) to you. We put small microphones in the ears along with the hearing aids and measure the sound that they provide to ensure they are tailored to your hearing loss and ear canal acoustics. We take the time to show you how to use and wear your hearing aids as well as how to care for them.


Follow ups

We provide ongoing care to our patients who get their hearing aids from our clinic. These are done routinely and as needed. Our team of audiologists help to problem-solve and troubleshoot to ensure that your hearing aids are comfortable and are working well. Occasionally, this may involve sending your hearing aids to the manufacturer when the issue can’t be solved in the office but when this happens, we are able to provide you with loaner hearing aids so that you have something to help you hear while you wait for your hearing aids to come back in.

On-Going Care & Support

Beyond diagnostic evaluations, we also provide ongoing care and support to our patients. This may include fitting and adjusting hearing aids, conducting follow-up appointments to monitor progress, and offering counseling and education on hearing conservation and communication strategies.
