I have three key priorities when I am with my patients. First, diagnose and treat hearing and balance disorders using up-to-date evidence-based approaches. Second, to educate patients about all the treatment options and their advantage/limitations and discuss how they may fit with each patient and their family members health priorities/goals.

Research Interests for Patients

My past and current research can be summarized along the following four themes: (1) eHealth (or Telehealth); (2) Consumer Health Informatics; (3) Hearing healthcare service delivery model; and (4) Psychosocial aspects of hearing loss. I co-lead the Virtual Hearing Lab ( with Prof. De We Wet Swanepoel.
