Former UCL MSc Advanced Audiology student Carolina Leal gives her view
"I saw an Audiologist about fitting and living with my new hearing aid. It was a very easy going but informative session and I wish to thank him for his expertise, imparted with good humour. He shared the technical aspects in a sufficiently comprehensible way, involving me and allowing me to take informed decisions. I can now enjoy hearing babies crying three doors away, each jet on the planes flying over the house and conversations of guests who come to eat with us. Cannot hear my eyeballs swivelling yet, but all in good time! Thank you and keep up the good work."
