"After a 15 year struggle uphill with unreliable and ill fitting hearing aids I should go private! I had my first appointment with Michael on 11th July. From the outset nothing has been too much trouble and every step of the way , we have had total confidence in his recommendations. Now after 5 weeks of wearing my new hearing aid for up to 10 hours a day, my quality of life has transformed- so thank you Michael."

"I recently bought my third pair of hearing aids from HCC and find the customer service to be excellent. On this occasion Michael Shade was the audiologist I saw and his advice and expertise have been superb. I’ve had five appointments to select, fit, adjust and fine tune the settings so the sound is perfect for my level of hearing loss.

Nothing was too much trouble and I know from past experience if an adjustment or repair is required, an appointment is given quickly.

I would like to thank Michael for the advice and help he has given and the time spent making sure I’m completely happy with my new hearing aids. He’s an excellent audiologist who made the whole process straightforward and enjoyable."
