What patients say...
"I had a very good experience recently having a hearing assessment with Catherine at the Wessex Clinic. She is so calm, confident and expert at what she does, it gave me the confidence to relax and enjoy the experience. Having never had an ear test before I was apprehensive about what might happen, I have to say it was totally painless. I would recommend Catherine to anyone with an ear problem."

"I visited for the first time on recommendation from a family member. Catherine chatted with me about my problem and explained fully and clearly the procedure for dealing with it. She gave advice about any ongoing problem and also hearing aid tips. The treatment was effective and comfortable. It has made a huge difference to my hearing.
I thoroughly recommend Catherine at Ear Sense."

"Catherine removed compacted ear wax from both my ears. She is a highly skilled and knowledgeable practitioner who spent time assessing what needed to be done. She then completed the task efficiently with no discomfort to myself. Her calm and friendly manner is most reassuring."

"I was extremely happy with the treatment I received. The response to my enquiry was prompt and a full explanation of the treatment was given before starting the procedure. All the ear wax was removed on one appointment and advice was given to avoid the further build-up of wax. The procedure was carried out in a very relaxed unhurried manner by a very competent and caring person."

"Sometimes the first visit is a little daunting, not knowing what to expect but I would say I was very truly amazed at the reception I received. The treatment was first class and explained every step of the way. I will certainly recommend Ear Sense to all of my friends."

"Amazing non invasive ear wax removal If I had not seen with my own eyes what was going on I would not have believed it."

"I have had two appointments with Catherine. The first was to assess my ears and remove a wax build-up and the second to give me a hearing test. The first was a wonderful relief as I had a really bad wax build-up and Catherine vacuumed out the wax so very gently leaving me feeling able to hear again. I was particularly impressed with the vacuum method for removing the excess wax. I have been very anxious and resistant to having them syringed. I did not feel at all anxious with this approach. The second meeting I had a hearing test which I found easy and very instructive. Catherine took a great deal of time to explain to me what was happening in my ears and what my options were. I so much appreciate this level of care and I will definitely go to see her again if I have any queries at all and just to check that things are working well. I feel lucky to have found her as I feel I am in such good hands. I am recommending my friends to her."

“I have had ear wax removed before but this was by far my best experience. Catherine was friendly, informative and professional. The micro-suction was painless and effective and the optional camera and screen allowed me to see both the problem before and the resolution. Ear Sense will definitely be my first choice in future! Thank you Catherine.”

"I am delighted to be able to recommend Ear Sense. I saw Catherine recently for micro suction which, as it turned out, wasn’t necessary so there was no charge! I then had a very thorough hearing test secure in the knowledge that there would be no hard sell as Ear Sense is completely impartial as it doesn’t supply hearing aids. All in all I found the experience very professional and reassuring with clear advice and explanations throughout. I will definitely return and have already booked other family members in to see Catherine. An all-round excellent service: thank you."

I’m so grateful and won’t hesitate to go again. Reassuring to know that Catherine is there when needed."

"Catherine has visited Hartwood House on a few occasions now to provide micro suction for some of our residents. We have had great feedback from everyone she has treated. Catherine is professional and knowledgeable and we would highly recommend her."

“I’ve just had my ears cleaned out by Catherine. I only needed the right ear cleaned as Catherine assessed what needed doing first rather than “just doing the job”. She was clear and explained all parts of the process before she started. She totally eased the process with a supportive and caring manner. Top Rated!”.

"After weeks of trying various oils/syringes etc on my two blocked ears, all to no avail I made an appointment for a home visit. Catherine was totally professional in explaining what she would do, and kept me informed all the time what she was doing. Now happy to report both ears cleared of wax and I can actually hear again. Thoroughly recommend Catherine 100% and thank you".

"After a diving incident earlier in the week I was left with severe ear pain, being a medic I made a likely diagnosis of water trapped behind impacted wax. As I was due to go on a long haul flight and a diving holiday 3 days hence I started searching google.
I left a voicemail and an email for Catherine which was responded to in less than 15 mins and an appointment made for that evening to my home.
After a thorough consultation she set to work.... initially taking a photo of my very impacted canals. 1 hour later I was left with pain free ears and the ability to hear again!!! Result
She has a very professional manner and is extremely gentle. As a service that is no longer offered by the NHS I can’t recommend her enough.
Bring on Cuba......... thank you"

"I can't recommend Catherine enough, she came to my aid last minute when I was very deaf in one ear due to a build up of unsightly wax. She was very kind and gentle and explained clearly the procedure and talked through the potential causes and how to avoid re-occurrence in the future. The procedure itself was painless and the blockage is now completely clear. She has since checked to see I'm feeling ok with no after effects. Catherine is very thorough and professional, if you suffer with your ears please do contact her and get her to sort them out."

30th March 2018
"Catherine visited me at home for microsuction. It was so interesting to see inside my own ears with the camera! It was also a relief to have all that wax taken out. Catherine was professional, knowledgeable and caring and I would highly recommend her."
19th February 2018
"I would just like to say thank you. I had all the information that I needed to make an informed decision...and always felt in control but without your considerable knowledge and input this would have been impossible.
Most of all though I have appreciated your care for me and I have always looked forward to seeing you at my next appointment.

"From the first time I met Catherine she could not do enough to help me. A really kind and caring professional. She was exceptionally knowledgeable and always went the extra mile to advise and answer any questions I had. I would highly recommend her service. She truly changed my life for the better and I will always be grateful for that."

"Catherine was efficient, courteous, considerate and professional....She ensured that I understood everything I was being told ...with patience....this is very important with patients with deafness, but not always the case even with ENT departments surprisingly. A first class example of the sort of professional we would like all healthcare staff to be."
