Domiciliary Visits without compromise
All testing equipment is the very latest in cutting edge diagnostic technology which would normally be found in a Hospital or Clinical setting, but due to advancements in miniaturisation, this equipment is now portable, allowing Andrew to make a comprehensive hearing assessment in the clients own home.
During Testing, specialist headphones are employed to reduce any ambient noise that may be present in the home to ensure the accuracy of Hearing tests.

Everybody is individual; as is the personally tailored Hearing solution that Andrew provides.
