Our family would not trust our hearing with anyone else. We have complete trust and confidence in the team at Acute Hearing – they are never too busy for us and not only are they friendly, but they are very knowledgeable. They are great with follow-up reminders for appointments and for checking in to find out how we are going with our hearing. We feel very fortunate to have Acute Hearing in our area, but we would be prepared to travel to them if needed. I have met other patients who do travel a long way to see James and the team at Acute Hearing. I’d like to let you know that you won’t regret it if you make an appointment with Acute Hearing.
