Ear Health Canada is the brainchild of Mohammad Asghar, Doctor of Audiology. Dr. Asghar has more than 30 years of experience in clinical audiology.
He graduated in Medicine in 1980 from University of Punjab in Lahore, Pakistan. After completing his residency in ENT he received his Membership with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Pakistan and practiced as an ENT specialist for a few years. There were no trained audiologists in Pakistan at that time. Realizing the need of the time he pursued his degree in Audiological Medicine from University of Manchester UK in 1987 and later, completed his Au.D (doctorate in audiology) from Salus university, USA in 2002.
He returned to Pakistan to start his career as an Audiological Physician in Pakistan. Being the pioneer in the field, he had to struggle to develop the necessary infrastructure for audiology. He, himself, received training in ear mould making, hearing aid production, and started an audiology business in professional grounds, which he later sold and moved to Canada in 2004.
In Canada he worked at the Ear Institute audiology clinic from 2004. He started the vestibular program at the Ear Institute and pioneered the dizzy battery approach for the assessment and management of patients suffering from dizziness problems.
He started “Hearing and Balance Centre”, the first Canadian vestibular assessment centre in private setup, in 2011. Today it is a group of 9 clinics. With that, he introduced the medical model of audiology, working closely with the medical community. Having a medical background he understood the dynamics of working together with the medical community for the benefit of audiology patients.
Dr. Asghar is a believer in new technology and with the introduction of equipment and technology it is now possible to reach out to the people who are under-served to assess and manage their hearing and balance problems. Learning from the Hearing and Balance Centres, he decided to integrate the same medical model in Ear Health Canada. This new entity will work in collaboration with ENTs and the medical community, in general, to help patients reach their rehabilitation goals in resolving hearing and balance disorders.
