The Hearing Care Center

 

Meet Michael Fourie and his Practice

Michael Fourie has compassion for people, and is passionate about working with the elderly and assisting them in returning to a normal social life. Together with our excellent support staff we do our best to offer our skills with an ethical and caring service and repairs at competitive and reasonable pricing. Our team of knowledgeable and caring individuals will gladly go the extra mile to find the best solution to the client’s requirements.

The Hearing Care Centre was established in 1995 by Michael Fourie, who had obtained his degree in Pharmacy before qualifying and practicing as a Hearing Instrument Acoustician. The Hearing Care Centre has not aligned itself with any single brand of hearing instrument as this allows us to provide the best hearing device to suit our clients’ particular hearing profile and lifestyle.

The effect of a hearing impairment is subtle, yet devastating. Some are not even aware of it. Tragically, only a fraction of those do something about it. Normal sound perception is a vitally important factor in our lives. Yet, all too often it's taken for granted. Our listening environment is shaped by a sound in a complex ever-present background, much of which is beneath our awareness.

We are also able to assist patients with hearing instrument repairs.

 

Medical Aid

Your medical aid contribution depends on your medical scheme and the medical plan you have selected. The basic range of hearing tests costs depends on the tests done. All tests at the Hearing Care Centre are charged according to medical aid tariffs. You are responsible for your account, and can claim the test from your medical aid if your medical aid provides for it. The rate of payment also differs, with some medical aids contributing annually (every year) and others every two years, etc. Talk to us about the personalised payment options that would work best for you. We are contracted to work with all medical aids.

 

 

  • The smallest bones are the ossicles in the middle ear: the incus, the malleus, and the stapes (also called the anvil, hammer, and stirrup).
  • The inner ear is no larger than a pencil eraser in circumference.
  • Your sense of hearing is dependent upon tiny hairs deep inside your ear. If you lose these hairs, you lose your hearing.
  • You do not need to clean wax out of your ears unless you have an abnormal condition. Ears push excess wax out as needed.
  • The majority of individuals suffering from hearing loss are under the age of 65.
  • The number one cause of hearing loss is exposure to excessively loud sounds (85 decibels or higher).
