Testimonials

At Active Audiology it is very important to us to have clients who are impressed with our services and happy to recommend us to their friends.  As the testimonials below show, we are achieving this goal.

 

For quite some time I was experiencing loss of hearing. Circumstances with higher pitched voices, in crowded rooms, watching television etc. Nevertheless, I was hesitant to seek help because I had heard many instances of people being dissatisfied with their hearing aids after purchase despite a heavy cost being paid for them. When I read Active Audiology’s advertisement in our local paper, I was instantly drawn to it, and my follow-up appointment confirmed all my requirements. I am wholly satisfied with my hearing aids- they are small, comfortable and did not cost the earth. I was particularly impressed with Julia Yannakis, my Audiologist, who put me at ease immediately and settled all my concerns.

I have a high frequency hearing loss which often distorts what I hear, so hearing aids are helpful. I also suffer with tinnitus which can at times be quite uncomfortable and annoying.

When I changed my audiology provider I found Cris Ivanidis to be particularly empathetic to my needs. He has been most helpful in the setting and adjustment of my hearing aids and in addressing the problems associated with tinnitus management.

I have already recommended Cris to friends who are having difficulty with hearing situations. I consider Cris to be an exceptional practitioner with a support team who are always courteous.

The old hearing aid with a hollow plastic tube from the ear piece to the hearing aid were very uncomfortable  in the ear and were causing ear wax problems. The hollow tube on humid days would have moisture in them and had to be dried out. The new Resound aids are far superior to the others, they give a better quality sound. I am able to hear better in crowded rooms. They are comfortable to wear one tends to forget they are wearing them, my ear wax problem has improved. I used to visit an ear specialist every six weeks to get them cleaned out so far I have been over 12 weeks without having to visit the specialist.

I am very happy with the staff and clinicians at Active Audiology. I am seen very promptly and when I request more batteries they arrive very quickly by mail. Overall I am very happy with the whole experience.

Life time Experience:

The course of my life is greatly influenced by the opportunities that can be afforded by myself. I have been really hard of hearing my entire life until I realized it late 2011 at my workplace. I would like to thank my wife in bearing with me and making me realize that, yes , you need support. She was so patient, calm when she had to repeat herself many times and at times she had to come to me to say or talk. I wish she wouldn’t have to bear this pain throughout but she stood strong and made me strong as well.

I am not sharing this because I am unique, I am not, but as a demonstration that we can offer hope to the developing world that people with hearing loss can indeed develop spoken language.

I am blessed with quality hearing instruments from my life’s best friend Cris Ivanidis at Active Audiology. And I would say with dissemination of expert knowledge, and a framework of support services, we can work together to set people with hearing loss on a path to achieve their full potential. So that they too can dream big dreams like me … and pursue their own measure of happiness like me.

I have never heard bird chirps, flowing air, water drops, and most amazingly the clock ticks.

My father has sharp hearing and he believes in saving water. Whenever he hears any water dripping from the tap, he reaches for the tap and tightens it and I used to wonder how the hell he could hear something that I couldn’t. Now I hear the water dripping and feel happy about that.

Now I can stand and share jokes with my NEW friends. Why not old friends – because they are under the impression that I won’t understand them or that they may have to repeat the whole joke.
