  • My hard-of-hearing journey was never an easy one. It stole most of my self-esteem, confidence, joy and happiness for the past 46 years.  I was referred by ENT to Beverly; my audiologist for the past 10 years. She advises taking advantage of Baha evolving technology and having an upgraded model fitted. WOW, it was such an exciting, overwhelming, emotional experience when I received my Baha 3. My Baha sound processor is my life-changer since then being upgraded. Now I'm wearing my more advanced Baha 6. Baha 6 have improved wireless connectivity which streamed directly to my cellphone for calls as well as other audio devices. To my audiologist, ENT, suppliers: Can’t thank You enough. Your support, assistance and clients friendly warm environment is highly Appreciated!

  • Having Beverley as my audiologist has changed my life! Suffering from hearing loss for 5+ years, I'd visited a number of audiologists and always left in tears without a solution or way forward. Beverley's patience, kindness and professionalism allowed me to understand my diagnosis of otosclerosis. I highly recommend her and her practice to anybody looking for an audiologist.

  • I have had only good things about B S Ordman and her team. Three years ago they assessed my sister, who has special needs, in a kind, reassuring and professional way and fitted her with a hearing aid. It has made a big difference to her quality of life and her communication ability. Since, they have been very helpful with servicing, reprogramming, replacing consumables and so on. I appreciate all they've done for our family and would recommend them to others.

  • My son has been seeing Dominique for close to a year now for Speech and Language Therapy. His excitement when I collect him from school to go for his Therapy is heartfelt for me as a parent, knowing my son thoroughly enjoys his time and feels happy and content to be there. All the ladies are an absolute pleasure, and I myself enjoy the time spent waiting as a sense of comfort and hospitality is always ever present. Thank You Dominique and Elwina, you ladies are definitely a pleasure to be around.”

Beverley’s expertise in treating my hearing loss has been exceptional. She clearly understands the issues we experience as patients and is able to offer honest, relevant and insightful advice on how to tackle my problems. She has been very empathetic, knowledgeable and professional in treating me and I feel very comfortable in continuing my treatment and recovery with her and her fantastic team. Thank you guys, you’ve made my experience as a customer and patient an exceptional one 😊
