Quality Hearing… Quality Life

“When someone in the family has a hearing loss, the entire family has a hearing problem.” – Mark Ross, Ph.D

“The choice of hearing aid depends on the type of hearing loss, the shape of the individual ear canal and to some extent the user’s own individual preferences”

“If your hard-of-hearing loved one resists the idea of getting hearing aids, influence change rather than embrace inaction” – Dr. Richard Carmen

“All the sounds of the earth are like music.” – Oscar Hammerstein II

“No hearing impairment is too slight not to warrant hearing management and no hearing impairment is too great to neglect the value of accessing residual hearing”

“Sound is not only a guide to the practicalities of living…it is also an aesthetic pleasure.” – Tomi Keitlen

We listen to you, so you can listen to life

“I am so happy with the quality of my hearing aids. They have changed my life and I wish I had got them years ago. Karien has been very caring and professional. It’s a pleasure to visit her beautiful office.” – Desiree Morris 

“Very professional. Very caring and was so gentle with my son.
Beautiful offices and I was made to feel at home on arrival..” – Roqshanah Fredericks Morgan 

“It has been a pleasure dealing with Karien. At all times she has been caring, compassionate and patient with me. I have always felt that she has had my best interests in mind and gone out of her way to ensure that my hearing is optimal. I am sure that this caring, compassionate way has contributed to her success. From a very happy, grateful client.” – Dennis Gouveia


Thank you for visiting our website. We trust to provide you with a basic knowledge into the practice of Audiology. Whether you suspect that you might have a hearing loss or whether you are referred for a hearing assessment/test, the idea itself is often daunting. It is therefore imperative that you see an Audiologist who is not only professionally trained but also has an understanding of the process and potential impact a hearing loss can have on the individual and his/her family. Being one of the fastest growing professions in awareness and technology, there are various options available for dealing with hearing loss, whether the loss is conductive or sensory.

Hearing aids and assistive listening devices are opening a world of possibilities for the person, child or adult, within the world of hearing loss that so many misunderstand. The stigma around hearing aids is now making place for a greater awareness about hearing protection against noise damage, the importance of being able to communicate in the working environment and the early detection of hearing loss in infants to ensure normal communication, emotional and social development.

About Us:

The Practice was established in March 2007 and was initially based in Albert Road, Walmer. In February 2008 the practice moved to the newly built Intercare Medical Centre in King’s Court. In 2009, a satelite branch of Karien Fourie Audiologists opened in Grahamstown and two years later, another in Port Alfred.

July 2014 marked a new era for us when our name changed from Karien Fourie Audiologists to Exclusive van der Sandt Audiology.

In September 2015 we relocated to our new address, 45 Lloyd Road, Walmer.

At our practice your individual hearing needs will be met in a personal and professional manner. We strive to provide a comprehensive service of excellence in improving the daily quality of people’s lives.
