difficulty hearing in background noise
- constantly asking people to repeat themselves
family and friends complaining the television is too loud
- difficulty hearing on the phone
- bluffing through conversation
- feeling as if everyone is mumbling
- feeling as if you can hear, but not understand
- feeling exhausted after attending busy social events, also known as listener’s fatigue

An audiologist is not a medical doctor. Audiologists carry a masters and/or doctoral degree and are regulated health professionals governed by the College of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists of Ontario. They are primary health care providers who focus on the prevention of hearing loss as well the identification, management and treatment of both hearing and balance problems. They are able to direct their career path in many different directions, including private practice, hospital work, education, research, and administration. They are also able to work with any age of the population to provide hearing solutions, including those with special needs.

Hearing instrument specialists are able to complete their education immediately after secondary school at a college offering the program. The program can be offered online as well. They are limited in scope to the adult population, and focus on hearing tests and dispensing hearing devices. While they are not regulated by any college, they are members of their association in Ontario. It is important to note that associations serve their members interests, while regulatory colleges serve and protect the public. This is why audiologists are not permitted to have testimonials on their website or at their clinic/centre.
When deciding on which clinic to begin your hearing health care journey, it is important to be aware of the differences between the two professionals and make an informed decision. Hopefully, the above information helps you select a clinic that provides a high degree of knowledge, patience, empathy, and service.
Partially. Through the Assistive Devices Program, patients receive $500 per ear towards hearing devices every 3-5 years. Our clinic will complete the paperwork required and submit to the Assistive Devices Program should the patient decide to pursue a hearing aid/device prescription. The paperwork is handled by the clinic and the $500 per ear does not need to be paid upfront. The first step is scheduling a hearing test at our centre and determining if hearing loss is present; our team can then discuss and provide solutions for hearing devices or treatment. We provide hearing devices and solutions suitable for all budgets and lifestyles. At certain times of the year, there are also offers from hearing aid manufacturers on the latest hearing device technology which the clinic is happy to pass on to our patients.
Experiencing hearing loss or a “ringing” sensation in your ears is the first sign of tinnitus. People who have been exposed to loud noises through their career or recreational activities (e.g, musicians, fire fighters, construction workers, aircraft mechanics), usually report occasional or constant tinnitus.
Tinnitus most often presents in patients over 60, although a person of any age can experience tinnitus. Tinnitus is most often correlated with hearing loss, but can also be caused by certain medications, stress, caffeine intake or smoking.
If you are experiencing tinnitus, please call the clinic today to make an appointment for a hearing test to determine if there is any hearing loss present. The audiologist will be able to discuss solutions, possible causes, and treatment options. Early detection of hearing loss and early intervention with a hearing device results in the best outcomes for preserving hearing and managing tinnitus.
A hearing test for patients under 50 is $75 at the clinic. A hearing test for patients over 50 is $50. Pediatric hearing tests (patients under 18) are charged $100 for a hearing test. The hearing test is comprehensive and includes a full investigation into the patient’s hearing and ear health.
Unfortunately, services provided at audiology clinics such as hearing tests and ear wax removal are not services covered by OHIP. However, most private insurance plans do cover audiology services and our clinic is happy to provide a detailed invoice to our patients to submit at the end of the appointment. It is worth making a call to your private insurance plans as prevention is key and scheduling regular hearing tests at our clinic is important for maintaining hearing health.
