Who We Are
Tarryn Richardson Audiology is based in the Intercare Medical and Dental Center in Fourways, where we work amongst a large team of health care professionals, including General Practitioners, Dentists, Physiotherapists, Biokineticists, Dieticians, and others.
The practice was established in January 2008 and has since grown to become a busy, reputable Audiology practice in Johannesburg. We take pride in offering you the best in hearing health care, teamed with an effortless experience and service with a smile.
We are passionate about people, hearing, and making a difference in your life.
Our audiologists will accurately measure the type and degree of your hearing loss, with a comprehensive diagnostic hearing test assessing the outer, middle and inner ear systems. With this information, they are able to recommend appropriate management, or refer you on to the necessary health care professional.
Should you require hearing aids, we will assist you in determining the best type of hearing aids for your hearing loss. We will fit the hearing aids using sophisticated software and continue to walk the journey with you, managing any hearing concerns you may have in the future.
Tarryn and Micaela have both obtained training in the diagnosis, management and treatment of tinnitus, internationally. They use a well-researched and personally designed habituation program to help each individual patient reduce their perception of tinnitus. This program encompasses elements of Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
Do loud sounds appear to be louder to you than to other people? Are you particularly sensitive to sound in your environment? Hyperacusis is a debilitating disorder characterized by increased sensitivity to everyday environmental sounds. Our audiologists have had great success in helping patients to desensitize to these sounds using principles of TRT and CBT.
Tarryn Richardson Audiology provides baseline, screening and diagnostic assessments for industrial workers. We are able to deliver comprehensive reports and hearing health recommendations for your company’s employees, in compliance with the current Health and Safety Act.
We provide on-site school hearing screening tests and comprehensive reports for all ages and grades. We offer the option of a customized online parent questionnaire and payment portal, relieving the school of any additional admin.
We assist in impression taking and ordering of various hearing protection, including noise plugs for musicians, hunters, motorcyclists and industrial workers; as well as swim plugs and snore plugs.
We have a range of consumable products on site, such as hearing aid batteries, wax guards, domes and drying tablets. We also offer disposable ear plugs, Cerulex Kits and Kidz Ears. You can simply stop by to pick up whatever you need.
