Our audiology clinic was one of the first private practices in Australia, set up by Janice Milhinch in 1980. The clinic has had a series of name changes as new audiologists have become owners. As of January 2020, Myriam Westcott and Kate Moore are directors of the clinic, which is now named DWM Audiology.
We are a professional partnership of clinical audiologists who together offer extensive experience in hearing assessment, hearing aid fitting/fine-tuning, hearing rehabilitation and central auditory processing disorder (CAPD) assessment,. As a result we have considerable proficiency in the evaluation and successful management of complex hearing and communication issues.
Our clinic has an established history of evaluation, management, workplace consultancy and research into tinnitus, hyperacusis, acoustic shock and hearing conservation. Dr Janice Milhinch was instrumental in the identification of acoustic shock as a newly identified condition, carrying out the first extensive study of 103 patients with acoustic shock in 2001.
We have the unique opportunity and commitment to continue to carry out clinically focused tinnitus, hyperacusis and acoustic shock disorder research in an independent private practice setting. The combined expertise and experience provided by Ms Myriam Westcott, Ms Kate Moore, Dr Ross Dineen and Dr Siobhan McGinnity has placed our practice as one of the leading centres providing tinnitus, hyperacusis and acoustic shock therapy in Australia and internationally.
We are accredited to provide services for WorkCover claimants and on referral from the Department of Veteran’s Affairs (DVA).
