Sandton Hearing & Balance was established at Mediclinic Sandton in October 2008, with a full range of diagnostic test equipment. Our audiologists believe in establishing warm and lasting relationships with our patients. We prefer spending plenty of time on each consultation, which allows for a thorough case history, comprehensive diagnostic hearing testing and further in-depth testing can be performed if necessary.

She completed her Masters degree in Audiology from the same university in 2015, with a specific focus on vestibular testing. She also earned an additional post-graduate qualification in vestibular testing in 2012 and provided practical training to 4th-year students at the University of the Witwatersrand in this field.

Margot is also very passionate about advanced diagnostic testing and recently tied the knot with her husband Mike at a ceremony in Johannesburg.

Lindsay has a special interest in diagnostic audiology, pediatric testing and vestibular testing. She completed an additional postgraduate qualification in vestibular testing in 2016. Although she grew up in Johannesburg,

Christina has just completed her Masters degree at the University of the Witwatersrand with a fellowship from SANTHE, in the field of Health Communications.
