Kapiti Hearing is an independent audiology clinic. We are not owned by a hearing aid company, nor do we have preferred-supplier contracts with hearing aid companies. We do not receive financial incentives to fit particular brands, and we do not pay our employees commission based on sales. We strive to fit the hearing aid best suited to our patients' needs, preferences, and hearing loss.
Whether you require a hearing test, a hearing aid fitting or have hearing protection needs, we are committed to providing exceptional care for your unique hearing needs. Call to book a hearing test at our Raumati or Waikane hearing clinic today. Ear suctioning also available in our Waikanae clinic on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
