Country Ear, Nose and Throat (CENT) :

ENT Surgeons Paul Paddle and Ryan De Freitas are the Directors of CENT. They recognised the urgent need for wider access to ENT services in rural and regional areas and set out to deliver world class care to country Australia. With multiple regional locations they saw Country Hearing Care as the perfect partner to help them achieve this.

You can now access specialist services with face to face consults or ‘comprehensive telehealth’ appointments in a number of locations. Learn more about CENT here.

Comprehensive Telehealth

CENT and Country Hearing care have pioneered new ENT telehealth services tin the region to develop provide more care options for their regional and rural patients. This means there are options for patients to have HD video examinations performed by fully qualified Audiologists in the closest Country Hearing Care clinic. A telehealth health appointment will then be scheduled with an ENT Doctor to review your history, view your video examination, and discuss the next steps. This means that often a diagnosis and management plan can be made for patients without having to travel hundreds of KMs to capital cities.

Face to Face Consultations

In many cases, you will need to see an ENT Surgeon in-person but this doesn’t mean that you need to drive to Adelaide or Melbourne. With regular scheduled consulting visits at Country Hearing Care locations and many common ENT surgeries performed in accessible rural hospitals our ENT partners come to you, delivering best practice specialist care, closer to home.

How can I see an ENT specialist?

You will require a referral from your GP to see an ENT doctor and sometimes a hearing or balance assessment before your appointment. Often, a simple questionnaire about your symptoms, will also be sent to you prior to your appointment for completion. The helpful staff at Country Hearing Care and CENT can help guide you through the process or speak to your GP about accessing our services.
