Juliana was born and raised in Elmira – a town where family, friends, and neighbours are a vital part of the community. After completing her Doctorate in Audiology in 2004 from the Arizona School of Health Sciences, Juliana was looking for a way to combine her passion for people with her keen interest in audiology.
Coming back to the town she grew up in, Juliana found a connection with the local nursing homes. Her desire to help others improve their everyday lives and educate them on best hearing practices led to Ear & Hearing Clinic joining forces with nursing and retirement homes. Her love for the elderly in our community is extremely evident in the way she respects and so diligently provides for those under her and Ear & Hearing Clinic’s care.

What if I have Hearing Loss?
If your test reveals hearing loss, your Audiologist will advise you on what kind of assistance is available. If you and your Audiologist decide that hearing aids could help you, your audiologist will guide you through the different styles, brands and technologies available.
While many people know at least a little bit about hearing aids, your Audiologist may also recommend other assistive listening devices such as amplified telephones or television systems, remote microphones or FM systems for hearing in noise, and flashing alert systems or vibrating alarm clocks (see our display at the clinic).
Bring a Loved One
The most important thing we use our hearing for is communication, and communication is a two-person (or more!) activity. We encourage you to bring someone with you to your appointment. It is not uncommon for a friend or family member to notice things that you miss when it comes to your hearing loss. They may also be helpful in identifying what listening situations are more or less difficult for you. If they are a frequent communication partner, it may be just as important for them to understand your hearing loss as it is for you to understand it.
Untreated hearing loss can frequently cause misunderstanding or frustration in interpersonal relationships. Finally, if you do have hearing loss there is a lot of new information to learn! Having someone with you can help.
