Welcome to the audiology practice of Dr. Natalie Buttress and our team of audiologists at NB Hearing! Our team of qualified audiologists hold audiology degrees from recognized universities, and we are clinically experienced to offer solutions for hearing loss or hearing impairment. We focus on adults with acquired hearing loss, and we also treat other ear-related problems. In addition to our existing services, we offer full diagnostic assessment and rehabilitation for balance and dizziness, ensuring a holistic approach to your auditory and vestibular health.

We supply and fit hearing aids, repair hearing aids, provide assistive hearing devices and we have experience in the effective management of tinnitus (ringing in the ears) as well as other abnormal ear sensations, such as hyperacusis (excessive sensitivity to sounds) and misophonia (intense irritation with certain sounds). We also screen hearing in children (in our rooms and at schools), and we monitor and protect the hearing of people who work in industry. We can offer you hearing protection, in-ear monitors and sleeping plugs.

We believe that your hearing and balance are important! Hearing connects us to one another. It enriches our lives by enabling us to learn, understand and develop. We need to hear in our work and our recreation. If you think you may have a hearing loss, with symptoms such as: difficulty following conversations in noisy places; increasing the volume of your TV without improved clarity; feeling that everyone around you is mumbling; you experience ‘ringing in the ears’ – it is vital to consult a professional audiologist.

We are an autonomous, private audiology practice and our independent ownership means that we can provide each patient with personalised, tailored hearing aids to specifically suit his/her hearing requirements. We have a ‘patient-first’ ethical approach to the decisions we make. Our hearing aids are sourced from a wide number of South Africa’s trusted and reliable hearing aid manufacturers to ensure that our priority is always YOU – our patient.

Our services include:

  • We can identify your hearing or balance problem through a calibrated hearing or balance assessment.
  • We provide comprehensive diagnosis of hearing loss in calibrated sound conditions for accurate results.
  • We provide comprehensive diagnosis of balance and dizziness with computerised equipment to ensure accuracy.
  • We support management and rehabilitation for all types of hearing impairments that are amenable to audiological assistance.
  • We offer balance/vestibular rehabilitation to help you return to normal life.
  • Supply and fitting (including the physical adjustment and programming) of a wide range of hearing aids which are tools to address hearing loss.
  • We provide a supported 30-day hearing aid fitting with a ‘money-back guarantee’ on the hearing device portion of the fitting, to help you find the ideal fit.
  • We support your hearing aid cleaning and facilitate repairs of all hearing aid makes, models and manufacturers.
  • Supply of hearing aid batteries, hearing accessories, wireless devices and assistive devices. If we do not have something in stock, we can order it for you.
  • Counselling and sound management for patients with Tinnitus, Hyperacusis and Misophonia.
  • We take ear impressions and arrange custom hearing protection, sleep-plugs, in-ear monitors, and swim plugs.
  • We do school and industrial hearing screenings and diagnostic services.
  • We will support home and hospital visits for patients who cannot travel (within certain ranges).
  • Our team is 100% committed to our relationship with you, to support you for the duration required to treat any hearing-related condition.

What is an Audiologist? An Audiologist is a skilled healthcare practitioner with a degree in Audiology, who can diagnose hearing disorders and identify problems with your ears and auditory pathway all the way up to the auditory centres of the brain. After diagnosis, an audiologist will help a person with a hearing loss find meaningful solutions to restore quality of life.

We apply our skills and knowledge to recommend suitable tools in the form of hearing aids and other devices, and plan rehabilitation around our patients’ hearing needs and communication lifestyle. Audiologists understand the anatomy and function of the ear and brain’s auditory system and balance or vestibular pathway, and the consequences of hearing and balance impairment. This means we can educate, treat and support persons with hearing loss, tinnitus, hyperacusis, misophonia and balance disorders.

NB Hearing was established in 1995. Our long history of treating patients across the Atlantic Seaboard, the Northern Suburbs of Durbanville, and the Southern Suburbs of Wynberg, Fish Hoek and Hout Bay, allows you to have the assurance that you will consult with a trusted audiologist in Cape Town.
