About Us

Mariet du Plooy Audiologists treat Tinnitus which is the hearing of sound when there is no external sound present. Most patients describe it as a ringing noise but it may also sound like clicking, hissing or roaring. In some people this can cause depression, anxiety or it may even interfere with concentration.  Call Mariet du Plooy Audiologists for any further information regarding treatments for Tinnitus, dizziness or balance.


Critical questions to consider that would aid in diagnosing the cause of the vertigo / dizziness:

  • Do you have vertigo / dizziness attacks or is it a constant feeling of imbalance?
  • How often do you have vertigo / dizziness attacks?
  • How long does the vertigo / dizziness attacks last?
  • Do you have any symptoms or signs before the vertigo / dizziness attack starts (e.g. headaches, loud noises, fullness in the ear/s, stress, change in head / body position)
  • What other symptoms do you experience during or after the attack besides vertigo / dizziness (e.g. hearing loss, fullness in the ear/s, facial weakness, pain, headache, ringing in the ear/s, light or sound sensitivity)

Assessing someone with vertigo or dizziness is a comprehensive and extensive evaluation involving several professionals, usually including an audiologist, ear nose and throat (ENT) specialist and / or neurologist.
