Who is Who?

 

An Audiologist is a hearing health care professional with a Masters degree in audiology who specializes in the administration and interpretation of complex hearing tests for all populations including infants. Audiologists are trained to identify, manage and treat non-medical hearing or balance problems as well as prescribe and fit hearing aids. Audiology is also a regulated health profession within the province of Ontario. This means that audiologists are governed by a regulatory college whose mandate it is to ensure that audiologists are practicing in a safe, ethical, fair and professional manner. The college also investigates complaints and ensures that audiologists are accountable to the public. We have 5 on staff to exceed your expectations.

A Hearing Instrument Specialist has a smaller scope of practice and is unregulated. An HIS can test someone’s hearing, and recommend specific hearing aids for a client, but the HIS is still required to get a hearing aid prescription from elsewhere. Pediatric hearing testing of infants is not within the HIS scope of practice.

An ENT is a medical doctor who specializes in the surgical and medical intervention of ear, nose and throat disorders.

All of the floats looked AMAZING!

Did the parade get you into the holiday spirit?🎄🎅
