Welcome To Murray Hearing Centre​

Specializing in Hearing Tests and Hearing Aids in Ottawa, Canada

Welcome to Murray Hearing Centre. We are centrally located at 1867 Carling Ave, at the corner of Maitland, but also provide clinics at over a dozen Retirement Residences, throughout Ottawa. As one of the few remaining independent clinics, we guarantee a service model which large chain-style clinics often cannot offer:

  1. Appointments are always with the same clinician
  2. Expert, owner-on-site, personal service, with the flexibility to ‘bend the rules’ to suit your unique needs.
  3. Wheelchair accessible, ground floor facility, with free parking.

We are staffed by Specialists who provide the following:

  1. Hearing testing, hearing aids, and on-site repairs for almost all models and brands.
  2. Tinnitus/Misophonia therapy. We have been trained in Tinnitus Retraining Therapy, which has a 94% success rate, to reduce bothersome in-ear noises, and disturbing environmental sounds, such as chewing and clicking, etc.
  3. Specialized ear canal debridement (cleaning), using curettage and micro-suction, which is rarely offered at other clinics, nor in Family Medicine offices.
  4. We also enjoy an excellent working relationships with others in related fields, namely, Caryn Bursch, Doctor of Audiology, with a specialty in Auditory Processing Disorders, and Dr. Winsion Chow, Otorhinolaryngologist (ENT).
  5. Office management with over 15 years of experience in hearing healthcare, to assist with all questions related to private insurance, and governmental and other third party insurers.

We have earned the respect of many of Ottawa’s physicians, and are regularly referred for testing, as well as difficult to manage ear canal impactions. Murray Hearing has also has the trust and confidence of the management and Directors of Care at over a dozen Retirement Residences, where we provide regularly scheduled clinics.

I've taken both my mother and mother-in-law to Ian with great success. Both had quite a bit of wax deep in their ears. He works very gently. Did a great job! Very pleasant and kind with a good sense of humour. We'll be going back soon for hearing tests.

Ian was totally brilliant - he not only liberated my ears from a huge and nasty wax blockage, he did it without much discomfort and kept me amused along the way. I feel 100% better after the visit and he will be my audiologist of choice from now on. His prices were also very reasonable and i can now breathe a huge sigh of relief (and hear myself doing it...)
I love this man and his assistant. He was so empathetic and just a funny and beautiful soul. He made me laugh thru my pain. Gosh I love this man. He made me feel so at home. No stress and no worry about a thing.

The staff at Ian Murray Hearing Centre is very friendly and caring. They took their time to help me navigate through the hearing loss world. Every staff member is very attentive and encouraging. I felt well looked after, well educated and very comfortable with making a decision about my hearing loss. I have recommended Ian Murray Hearing Centre to many people and will continue to do so.

Ian Murray is one of a vanishing breed... the owner, in his own shop, selling what's best for the client and providing real old-time honest service. I have high expectations and it takes a lot for me to give 5 stars in any review. But I'm glad to do it for this business. I've been around the block with the hearing aid business. It is an industry dominated by poorly trained, poorly informed, high pressure sales people -- not here though.

A well deserved 5 stars. My husbands had a much needed cleaning done in both ears. One of which was very packed with wax. Ian Murray successfully removed the blockage and restored my husbands hearing. Ian Murray is a wonderful specialist who really knows his stuff. He's patient and very informative. I highly suggest his quick and painless ear cleaning. If you can avoid going to a clinic and having them use a painful syringe on your ears...Do it.

Dr. Murray was super relaxed, comedic, and made my appointment a great experience. He didn't rush the appt. like most do, and even took the time to write down book recommendations for me, based on a topic we were casually discussing. The two ladies at the front desk are also super sweet, and I love the whole vibe of the place, lots of care and thought put into it! Dr. Murray was very fair with pricing and it was abundantly clear that this is a place that prioritizes health + happiness, and not just profit. Thank you so much! :)

I went today to get my ears cleaned and it was an incredible experience. All of the reviews about Ian Murray are so bang on and now I can hear with much more clarity. I'll be going to see him regularly from now on. Be kind to your ears and go see him too. He's the perfect blend of friendly, funny, and professional.

Thanks kindly for fixing my partner, David! With one quick session, his pain is immediately resolved and even his hearing has improved. He really appreciated the kind service and I appreciate having his fifth sense back. 👂 💪

I could not tell you how happy I was with the service at Murray Hearing Centre. I woke up one day and had no hearing in my Right ear. After reviewing comments on the Murray Hearing web site decided to give them a call. The receptionist I spoke to was extremely polite and helpful I was concerned about my hearing and I guess she knew it as they gave me an appointment for that day. Unbelievable. I was looked after by Isaac Murray who was able to set my mind at ease. He was extremely knowledgeable and very polite. He was able to tell what was wrong and he recommended a diagnosis. I was so pleased with the service and professionalism. I recommend them to anyone with a hearing problem. Excellent knowledgeable and professional service.
