How we make a difference
Any type of hearing impairment can dramatically upend your life. It is very common for people who have trouble hearing to isolate themselves and begin feeling depressed. That’s why early intervention is so important, and also why it’s never too late to do something about your hearing loss.
We want to end the stigma associated with hearing loss. It’s no less common than losing your ability to see clearly, but there is no shame or embarrassment associated with wearing glasses. It can take a while for people to admit to themselves that they need help, and we are ready and waiting to make your hearing care journey one of comfort and empathy.
We also realize that people may hold themselves back from seeking help for a variety of reasons. That’s why our clinics offer a number of benefits to our clients to improve their well-being. Learn more about why you should choose McNeill Audiology for your hearing health care.

MEET OUR STAFF:
Chelsea Burge M.Sc., Aud., Registered Audiologist
Chelsea Burdge completed her B.Sc. at UVic in the combined Biology and Psychology program in 2010. When she shadowed an audiologist and witnessed the emotions of a client being fit with hearing aids for the first time, she realized that audiology is the perfect combination of working hands-on with amazing technology while also helping people with their health.
Chelsea completed one of her clinical practicums with us while attending UBC’s Master of Audiology program. After completion of her degree at UBC, she spent 8 months on contract with the Government of Nunavut, providing audiological services to patients of all ages in 12 communities in the Baffin Island region. Chelsea and her husband are happy to be home in Victoria where they can do their favourite activities year-round, including boating, fishing, and camping. She also enjoys running, snowboarding, and working in her garden.
Chelsea feels passionate about providing the best possible service to people with hearing loss, and we are thrilled to have her join the McNeill Audiology team. She looks forward to meeting you!
