Active Audiology is owned by audiologist Cris Ivanidis who believes the best hearing advice and solutions come through independent service. Active Audiology is a truly independent hearing clinic and we have no commercial alliances with any manufacturers. Being independent allows our audiologists to make unbiased recommendations so clients have the widest range of solutions available to them. It also means our audiologists are experienced in a large range of technology to tailor individual solutions for each person that we see.
The audiologists at Active Audiology are University trained clinicians. They understand that their role is much more than simply fitting hearing devices. At Active Audiology, our audiologists get to know our clients and their lifestyle, because listening to clients’ needs is what enables us to achieve the best hearing outcomes for our clients.
