Carolyn Palaga believes assessing the auditory system is not as simple as a hearing screening. The approach subscribed to the clinic is to first obtain a clear understanding of the patients individual concerns. A complete medical history is obtained which provides information to assist in the treatment of the hearing loss. Treatment options may include counselling of the auditory system, a referral to a otolaryngologist (ENT), or information regarding work-related hearing loss compensation.
A complete diagnostic evaluation with over 25 years clinical experience allows Carolyn to provide patients who experience hearing loss with the greatest opportunity for success: the ability to regain hearing and connect with their individual world.
The process begins by ensuring the technology that is recommended is the most advanced and has the greatest research and development support. A verification process, which is prescription based, is performed, counselled and educated to ensure the patient understands the device as well as the process, which unfolds over a 6-8 week period. The global approach of a complete diagnostic evaluation and the most innovative technology allows Carolyn the best opportunity for the patient to succeed with the rehabilitative or hearing aid fitting process.
Carolyn strives to provide the highest level of service to her patients by providing strict clinical rules in the diagnosis of hearing and vestibular conditions as well as the most advanced science based technology to her patients as a solution to treat their individual hearing needs in an effort to improve their quality of life.
