As of July 2017, Hearing Healthcare Centre will be launching our own Skype account. Skype is software that allows spoken conversation with someone over the internet, often utilising webcam.
We believe that the use of Skype can be a great tool within our practice to help our clients. By utilising Skype, we can take telephone appointments to help you troubleshoot any problems you might be having.
Having trouble changing a wax trap? No Problem! We can demonstrate the technique over webcam.
Webcam conversation also can help you understand speech with more clarity, because you can make use of lip-reading.
Please note: Skype calls and demonstrations are strictly for Hearing Healthcare Centre clients. No arrangements will be made without prior registration.
