WITH a new room opening at the Audio Clinic in Shepparton on Mondays, Lin Cole is now able to extend her Cobram-based, specialised service to help more people with ear obstructions.

LinC Ear Clinic’s service offers professional and effective removal of wax and other objects from the ear.

“I provide general ear health and advice, but mostly the service involves gentle ear wax removal by micro-suction under direct vision, which is ratified by Ear Nose and Throat specialists as the safest and most effective technique world-wide,” Lin said.

“Beyond wax, we can actually remove any foreign body in the ear, such as dislodged grommets in children, and some of the work I do includes post-surgery Mastoidectomy cavity management.”

As a registered nurse, as well as a nationally accredited ear specialist nurse, Lin has spent nearly two decades working in the field.

“I worked as a senior nurse for 15 years at the Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital in East Melbourne and also spent two years working in a private ear clinic, which is primarily what I’ve based this service around.”

This is the first service of its kind offered in regional Victoria and, having grown up in Barooga, Lin says she has a passion from bringing city services to the country.
