About Murray Hearing

Our two clinicians and administrative staff provide consistent care and have a total of over 60 years of combined experience in the hearing health field. At Murray Hearing, each patient is always cared for by the same clinician, as building a relationship involves a lot more than just understanding the hearing loss: it’s about understanding your lifestyle and particular needs. We believe our personalized consistent care, high level of training, advanced equipment and knowledge of the products to be our greatest strength. Whereas Ian is primarily responsible for the testing and prescription process and fittings of hearing aids, Caryn’s expertise in auditory processing and advanced diagnostic testing can be arranged through Murray Hearing.

Communicative Disorders Assistant (CDA)

Brigette Barber BA, CDA

Brigette’s brings to Murray Hearing her keen interest in aural rehabilitation, focusing on the link between hearing aid use and the ability to maximize their usefulness for communication. She will also focus on the needs of patients with communication difficulties which cannot be solved by hearing aid use alone.
