About our practice

Dr Vass Hearing is an independent private clinic established in Canberra, Australia, in 2012 by Dr William Vass. Specialising in hearing health, the practice is committed to the ethical, positive, and fair treatment of all our clients and providing tailor-made solutions. Our location in the John James Medical Centre within the medical precinct of Deakin has us in close proximity with other medical practitioners and allows for convenient, easy-access to related medical facilities.

“Being an independent audiologist means I can put my patient’s needs before profits – I don’t have to meet sales targets.”
