First Class Service

My wife Janice has just attended an appointment with Michael to get new hearing aids fitted. Prior to this, having a conversation with her was sometimes problematic, but not any more. Michael provided a first class service, ensuring that the new hearing aids were suitable, that they were set correctly and he fully explained all the functions. Thanks to him, I no longer have to repeat myself! Thank you!

Hearing Aid

I went to Hear and Now for a hearing aid. Mike fitted me with a Starkey Livic 1600. He spent time explaining clearly how to use the devices and set it up with blue tooth on my phone enabling me to hear the telephone more clearly. He set up a quick follow up appointment to check if I was having any issues or difficulties. I explained that teach and struggle to hear at a distance in class room situations, he suggested a microphone placed on the table and linked to my hearing aid. I have not taken this step yet but as I am waiting to see how I get on without it once the new term begins.
I really appreciate the advice given by Mike, he is very helpful, listens carefully and looks for solutions to individual problems.
I am very happy with my hearing aids and the thoughtful attentive service that Mike gives.

Don't Go Anywhere Else

I went to Hear & Now recently to get some help with my tinnitus. As a retired audiologist myself, I was very impressed with Mike’s knowledge and skills in tinnitus therapies and tinnitus management. I would highly recommend Hear & Now to you, even if that means travelling a few miles; for me, it’s over 130 miles! If you are lucky enough to be local, don’t go anywhere else.

Excellent advice!

My father who is 89 has had 2 appointments at Hear and Now in the last couple of weeks. The service he received and advice was excellent. Very good communication to the family from the owner. He is now hearing for the first time in 2 weeks. Great response from a local business in these difficult times.

Great experience!

What a great experience, having booked a visit for a problem not handled by the doctor I was met with a very friendly greeting and after a couple of minutes I was asked into the treatment room, during the visit I was impressed by the COVID awareness and just cannot recommend Hear & Now highly enough, thank you and hope to see you again

Highly Recommend

Exemplary service. A very clear and detailed explanation of the options for new hearing aids. Much time was spent in equipping me with what was most appropriate for me. Nothing is too much trouble - great care and attention paid at every stage. I would recommend Hear and Now wholeheartedly. It was an excellent choice.

byDr Ray Head onHear & Now
Superb service highly recommend

We, that is my my wife and I, visited "Hear and Now" early in the autumn and underwent a detailed examination of both our hearing.
The service was excellent and the examination very professional. When my wife found that a particular solution was not what she had expected Mike Wells provided an immediate resolution which has been very good. As for me, he removed an enormous amount of wax from my ears and supplied a prescribed set of hearing aids. All working well. Thank you both very much. Dr Ray Head

Superb Hearing centre!

Having had a hearing test and subsequently purchasing hearing aids I can thoroughly recommend Hear and Now for the care and personal attention I have received. The service is second to none and the after service excellent. Although hearing aids are expensive the improvement to my life is priceless.

Highly Recommend

My Daughter unable to have her ears syringed at our local surgery and seeing your advert in 'Ripon Review' I made an appointment for her, she was very impressed with the 'new' technology of micro suction, the care taken and service given. As a result she made a hearing test appointment for me, I had struggled with hearing loss for a while, which seemed to deteriorate further through lock down. I was very impressed with the care and attention given during the test and the time taken in explaining the level of hearing loss. The whole process of having to wear hearing aids as been made so much easier by them, due to the excellent service and reassurance provided, nothing was too much trouble. Excellent service. Thank you.

byRoselind Richold onHear & Now
Terrific service

A big THANK YOU to 'Hear and Now'. I had an important hospital appointment for 24th September and after being turned down by numerous Audiologists for ear wax removal. I was in a desperate situation. Immediately in ringing 'Hear and Now' in Ripon I was given an appointment by a very sympathetic lady for 23rd September. I was treated with the utmost care and consideration by Mike Wells, who is the head of the practice. I cannot praise enough the very professional service I received. I would heartily recommend anyone with hearing problems to get in touch with Hear and Now.

byAllan Watkins onHear & Now
Definitely Recommend

I saw your advert, and as I needed my ears syringing I looked at your web page and found it very interesting. I had never heard of microsuction before, so I telephoned and spoke to a very obliging and helpful lady, who advised me to visit and have my ears checked out. An appointment was made and my ears were syringed by this new technique. I was over the moon with the result, and how simple and easy this had been. Much better than the conventional method of flushing out with a forced jet of water. Very competitive in price, and money well spent. My sincere thanks to Mike for doing such a marvellous job, and I will certainly recommend you to all my friends.

Great place and friendly welcome

I am really pleased with the professional service and friendly welcome I have received at Hear & Now. The initial consultation was thorough and I felt my requirements were taken into account when choosing the best hearing aid for me. My new hearing aids are comfortable to wear and have made such a difference to my daily life. I would highly recommend this company.

byPatricia Melmerby Ripon onHear & Now
Extremely professional service

Extremely professional service in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere . At no time did I feel pressurised and I was given the time and opportunity to try out different devices before committing myself to purchase. During lockdown it was very reassuring to be able to speak with the audiologist and I was really impressed with the personal service I received. In all, a most satisfactory experience resulting in a marked improvement in my hearing ability especially in social settings.

Professional, efficient and personalised service

After an initial consultation with the NHS, I was looking for a something better. Hear & Now has provided a professional, efficient and personalised service resulting in a much improved hearing experience and the process continues with regular monitoring and adjustment as appropriate.

Mike and Yan offer a courteous, friendly and experienced service and nothing is too much trouble. I wholly recommend them to anybody suffering from hearing difficulties with great confidence that you won't be disappointed.

I would like to thank everyone at 'Hear & Now' for the outstanding level of service provided to my husband. Every query was dealt with efficiently, patiently and in a professional manner. Their level of customer care is excellent and we would highly recommend them to others seeking assistance with hearing loss.

Excellent service

I recently attended Hear and Now, Ripon for microsuction treatment. What an excellent service on every level. Professional, courteous and thorough.. I have no hesitation in recommending them and I will certainly be using them again in the future.

byDavid Bonthron onHear & Now
Highly recommend

Yan and Mike run a very friendly family business in Ripon that I can wholeheartedly recommend. Mike is an audiologist with many years experience and offers a great service with excellent personalized diagnosis and follow-up. There is no sales pitch or pressure, just a careful considered diagnostic assessment and balanced advice on the available options. Follow-up has been excellent too, with visits scheduled as and when needed to adjust the aids until optimal performance has been achieved. I have been very happy with the experience and am reassured to have this business available locally for future needs.

byAlan Skidmore onHear & Now
Service superb from start to finish



byRobin Dant onHear & Now
Highly Recommend!

My wife went to Hear and Now as she had had problems with hearing aids in the past. Being able to try out hearing aids was excellent. It was no trouble to Mike to make adjustments etc. until eventually problem free ones were fitted. Since then follow up appointments had been offered where any minor adjustments have been made.

Nothing has been too much trouble for Yan and Mike. If anyone has any hearing problems then Hear and

Now is the place we recommend you go to.

byAnthony Walker onHear & Now
Exceptional service

Having used NHS hearing aids and still getting complaints from friends and family about my ignoring them, I decided to try Hear and Now.

The service is exceptional, very friendly and helpful combined with knowledge and experience. What more could you want.

My new hearing aids are comfortable and a considerable improvement on what went before and the post fitting service and follow up is first class.

I would easily recommend this business and the people in it to anyone who wishes to improve their hearing. Tony Walker.

Outstanding audiology service

Outstanding audiology service from Hear and now in Ripon
From my personal experience of Hear and Now I rate their audiology service as outstanding. The team of two provide professional, experienced, caring and friendly service. They are attentive to detail, providing full explanations of all aspects of hearing loss and tinnitus. Hearing loss measurement, the assessment of hearing aid requirements and the appropriate adjustment of recommended hearing aids is nothing less than excellent. Nothing is too much trouble nor too time consuming. I was provided with trial hearing aids for several weeks in order to evaluate performance. Once I had tested the hearing aids and agreed on my preference the fitting and follow up service was second to non. I recommend Hear and Now Ltd. without reservation.

byMichael Morby onHear & Now

My moderate hearing loss was meaning that I was missing out a lot in social situations. Thanks to the professional help from Mike and Yan my hearing aids mean I am leading a much more enjoyable and fulfilling life.
