Heritage Hearing Care was founded in 1998 after the passing of Murray Fraser, a well-loved local hearing aid dispenser. Andrea Graham had been serving as an audiologist with Dr. Jeff Jones, the local ENT specialist. Faye Larocque had been working for Murray. We pooled our complementary skills and carried on Murray’s tradition of service.
Originally, we were located in the Lakeside Medical Centre, but soon outgrew our space. In 2005, we moved to “Dr. Munroe’s” former house on the corner of Pembroke and Agnes Streets. The building had seen better days, but we have been working on it, bit by bit, to restore some of its former glory. The stairway in the lobby is a beautiful example of the skills of the craftsmen of the 1800s. You must come to see it.
At the end of 2011, we finished renovating the former “taxi stand” to provide a second office, a larger test booth, as well as an education room. The timing could not have been better. When the Marianhill Audiology Clinic closed in 2012, we were able to welcome Audiologists, Tamara McBurney and Terri Selle. With the additional space and talent, we have been able to expand services into outreach clinics.
