Get personalised care from an expert audiologist in Launceston

Our company was founded by husband and wife team, Ian and Fiona Parsons. Ian and Fiona owned and operated Melbourne's Premier Audiology Clinic (Hearing Diagnostic Centre) for a number of years before having their second child and deciding to move back to Tasmania to be closer to family.  The Ear Clinic is a truly independent hearing clinic, which is a rarity on our industry. 

Ian has a strong background in electronics, physiology and psychology, which is the ultimate blend of skills in the world of audiology. We focus on a holistic approach to improving your hearing, rather than just selling hearing aids.

Any audiologist can sell you a high technology hearing aid, but Ian is rare in that his electronic background gives him a much deeper understanding of how hearing aids work.  We endeavour to get the best out of the hearing aid we select, and it is our belief that the ongoing care and relationship is the key to achieving this best outcome for you.
