Hearing Aids for Children and Adults ... because Hearing is Living


Under the donation program of hearing aids we have with MIDES, we adapt hearing aids to adults and children. It is a pleasure to support them so that they can hear.

 

The care of the hearing aids includes us all ... that's why Mr. Gierhat's wife helps and learns about their use. It is important that when you receive your hearing aids, whether you are big or small, you are accompanied by a family member who provides support.


We offer Language Tests and Language Therapies for Children.

Our team of speech therapists is ready to offer your children language tests and therapies that help them improve the performance of their language. We offer these services also on Saturdays until noon.

 

       

 

¡Todos los exámenes bajo un mismo techo!

Remember that in our clinic located in Vía Fernández de Córdoba, Plaza Córdoba, Floor 1, Office 8, we offer you not only the Auditory Screening, but all the auditory tests in one place.

Story "Knowing Lorenzo" comes to Libraries in the country.

 

Thanks to the National Library we can deliver our Storybook "Knowing Lorenzo" through the Public Libraries throughout the country. In this way we contribute so that more Panamanian families have access to information and education on the topic of deafness and hearing loss.

Hearing Aids for Children and Adults ... because Hearing is Living

During the month of March we had a donation day of hearing aids in conjunction with MIDES where we were able to return the gift of sound to many people.

 

During this day we could benefit both children and adults, here we can see the molds taking which took 30 days to be ready to start the last phase of this day that was the hearing aid fitting.
