About Us

Our audiology clinic was one of the first private practices in Australia, set up by Janice Milhinch in 1980. The clinic has had a series of name changes as new audiologists have become owners. Ross Dineen joined the clinic in 1992, and "Janice Pitman Milhinch" became "Milhinch and Dineen Audiology" in 1997. Myriam Westcott joined the clinic in 2000, with the practice name changing to "Milhinch Dineen Westcott Audiologists" in 2002. 

Once Janice Milhinch retired from clinical audiology in 2003, the clinic was renamed Dineen and Westcott Audiologists in 2004. We have since expanded our practice to include Mary Leung, who joined in 2004, Kate Moore in 2006 and Damon Shepherd in 2016. As of July 2013, Ross Dineen, Myriam Westcott and Kate Moore are directors of the clinic, which is now named Dineen Westcott Moore Audiology. 

We are a professional partnership of clinical audiologists who together offer extensive experience in hearing assessment, central auditory processing disorder (CAPD) assessment, hearing aid fitting and hearing rehabilitation. As a result we have considerable proficiency in the evaluation and management of complex hearing and communication issues. 

Our clinic has an established history of evaluation, management, workplace consultancy and research into tinnitus, hyperacusis, acoustic shock (AS) and hearing conservation. Janice Milhinch was instrumental in the identification of acoustic shock injury (ASI), carrying out the first extensive study of 103 patients with ASI in 2001. We have the unique opportunity and commitment to continue to carry out clinically focused tinnitus, hyperacusis and acoustic shock disorder research in an independent private practice setting. The combined expertise and experience provided by Ross Dineen, Myriam Westcott and Ms Kate Moore has placed our practice as one of the leading centres providing tinnitus, hyperacusis and acoustic shock therapy in Australia. 

We are accredited to provide services for WorkCover claimants, Office of Hearing Services (OHS) voucher holders and on referral from the Department of Veteran's Affairs (DVA).
