Mini’s multifaceted approach to hearing health care involves not only a medical component in diagnosing and monitoring hearing loss, the health of outer and middle ear, but also rehabilitative components of living with a hearing loss. Such therapies include fitting hearing aids and assistive devices, social and aural therapy as well as auditory processing therapy, noise protection and prevention of further hearing loss.
Mini is passionate about helping both children and adults hear better via diagnostic testing as well as rehabilitative forms of treatment, all within a compassionate and welcoming environment. She prides herselves in offering professional advice for all patients with hearing loss and delivering the highest standards of clinical care. You truly need to consult her to experience the difference she can make to your hearing health.
One of the hearing disorders which is often not given much attention by hearing professionals, is Auditory Processing Disorder. As an audiologist, Mini aspires to bring this into bigger picture and assist hearing impaired population to understand that the hearing instruments are only one part of the process of restoring communication through good hearing. Auditory processing assessment and management is thus an important component of hearing treatment that Mini plans for her patients.
When patients ask Mini what she has to say about her rehabilitation approach, this is what she says:
“It really is better on the other side!”
