I received the best hearing system for my budget
Mairi Jay: Wanganui -
I have had hearing problems for the past 10 to 15 years and experienced five different hearing clinics. Each of the clinics provided a reasonable level of technical and professional service but none helped me to understand the complexity of hearing loss and what I need to do to keep my hearing and hearing aids at best performance. I did not feel I was getting the best solution for my money.
Each of the clinics were technically and professionally OK, but I didn't feel that they had been adjusted to my hearing lifestyle and that I had been properly instructed in how to use them. I felt that I was being pushed through in minimum time for maximum efficiency .
I contacted Auckland Hearing because I was disappointed with my previous experiences. Auckland Hearing / Maree O'Sullivan helped me by her very thorough assessment of my hearing difficulties. She did the same tests as the previous clinics, but she spent more time explaining the nature of my hearing loss. She explored why I needed hearing aids (what I need to hear with my particular lifestyle) and ensuring that the new aids were adjusted as fully as possible to make up for my hearing loss and to feel comfortable.
The result was that I feel I have had excellent service and received the best hearing system for my budget (which was middle of the range). I learned a lot about my particular hearing loss and the process of learning and re-learning to hear with the new aids. The experience was really helpful.
It has given me more confidence about how to use my aids and get the best out of them. I'm now considering doing some volunteering work, something I could not have contemplated before I got these hearing aids.
I have since recommended Auckland Hearing to a friend who has lost his hearing through work-related activity.
