3 years ago, Tasmanians did not have much choice when it came to having their ears cleaned or dewaxed. They could either risk getting their ears damaged by self treatment and pharmacy options, risk getting their ears syringed at their GP clinic often after having to come back for multiple appointments or having to wait months upon months for an ENT appointment for safe microsuction to be administered. As an Audiologist working at a Audiology Clinic in Devonport back in 2015 having come across from Melbourne, I was aghast at the lack of options my patients had. What hit the nail on the head for me was when one of my patient refused to wear their hearing aids due to a desire not to have his ears syringed by his GP. I felt bad for him and other like him that there wasn't really any practical alternative to syringing which I already knew was not the safest procedure around (read my blog about this here). Being the kind of clinician that goes above and beyond the normal call of action, I decided to bring Microsuction Earwax Removal to Tasmania.

Heather also noticed that not everyone can or is able to physically come to an appointment at a GP clinic due to physical limitations. Heather therefore conducts home visits as well as nursing home visits for all patient in Devonport and Launceston. Our patients have been very grateful for this service.
