Entrust your hearing to a Doctor of Audiology! Your hearing system will be evaluated by a professional with a doctoral degree in hearing science, auditory system disorders and rehabilitation, vestibular (balance) disorders, and precise and prescription-based hearing aid fittings. Terrace Hearing Clinic offers a range of pricing and technologies like rechargeables, bluetooth streaming, tiny styles, cell-phone compatible apps, and also much more simple technologies. Our audiologist will carefully guide you through the process of choosing what you need, and will prescriptively program them to your specific hearing loss, with lots of follow-up time and warranties. In addition to hearing evaluations and hearing aid fittings, we provide tinnitus retraining therapy for tinnitus patients. Our main hearing clinic is in Terrace but we hold clinics in Rupert, Smithers, Hazelton and we have visited smaller communities upon request.
All of our evaluations, counseling, as well as prescribing and fitting hearing aids are with a Doctor of Audiology. A Doctor of Audiology has 8 years of university training, including psychology, neuroscience, perception, acoustics (physics), aging, and of course hearing aid theory and functioning. An Audiologist uses that all of that knowledge and training to provide a diagnostic assessment and consultation for your hearing. An audiologist can also use that information and their own knowledge to provide an accurate hearing aid fitting and adjustments for your specific hearing needs. There are different types of hearing propossionals, and not all hearing professionals are Audiologists who also fit hearing aids are also Hearing Instrument Practitioners.
Our clinic audiologist, Dr. Joely Novik-Viveiros, AuD. has earned a Master's degree in Audiology from the University of BC's School of audiology and speech sciences, part of the faculty of medicine, and she then earned a Doctor degree in audiology. For the past 25 years, she has been providing hearing services and hearing aid fittings in the Northwest, specifically Terrace, Smithers, Prince Rupert, Hazelton and Kitimat residents for over two decades. Professional university training is important, but so is experience.
Our hearing aids are competitively priced (we strive for the most fair pricing), and we offer a range of prices to suit any budget. We provide services for many health plans and hearing aid plans. Most importantly, they are professionally fit, with ongoing follow-up and after-care.
