About Nolke Hearing Care

Nolke Opticians and Hearing Care

Nolke Opticians is delighted to introduce Audiologist Mr Abe Yakob to our team. We can now bring Audiology services to our patients under the same roof and with the same care and attention that has allowed the practice to grow and develop since 2004.

Audiology fits perfectly in to our practice model and we plan to bring a unique new look to our services for 2020. Abe will work most Saturdays which should allow good access to patients. We have an excellent audiology screener onsite during the week which will allow staff in the practice to carry out a screening test. This will allow us to prepare interested patients for a full assessment with Abe on Saturdays.
