The Centre for Advanced Hearing and Balance Testing at Toronto General Hospital is among the largest and most diverse out-patient audiology and specialty vestibular units in North America.
We work closely with a multidisciplinary team lead by Dr. John Rutka and our clinical team members receive specialty training in diagnostic testing that is not available elsewhere in the province. In addition, the collaborative structure of our clinic allows for dialog between our team members and the physicians we work with, something that helps to ensure that we maintain our very high standards of quality with even the most challenging assessments.

WHY CHOOSE US?
Established in 1998, we now perform approximately 3000 comprehensive vestibular assessments every year, which amounts to over 10,000 tests. We are regularly exposed to challenging and unusual cases that would be almost unheard of in a clinic with more typical testing volumes.
Our collaborative structure means that our entire team learns from these exceptional cases. We have the experience needed to recognize details that might otherwise be missed.
Our clinical team offers unparalleled expertise in audiological and vestibular assessment. Each member of our team is carefully trained to follow clinical protocols that maximize internal consistency while still allowing room for independent clinical judgement.
Our team members regularly engage in research and teaching, including as speakers for the vestibular assessment course we ran in 2015 and 2016, which was well-attended by audiologists across Canada. We regularly receive requests from physicians and audiologists, both nationally and internationally, who are interested in observing our practices.
Each test within our evidence-based test battery probes a distinct area of the vestibular system, providing essential information about vestibular function. Based on the clinical skills of our team members, the breath of tests that we offer, and the diversity and complexity of the patients we see, our centre is unique within Canada.
We pride ourselves on modeling our vestibular assessment practices on the most recent empirical evidence available. The members of our clinical team have the extensive knowledge and attention to detail necessary to evaluate even the most complex patients.
