Fezeka Ngwana

My Name is Fezeka Ngwana, 23 year old girl.

I have been a patient of Dr Mariekie Cilliers Audiology in Benoni for 6 years now and it has been a great journey with her, from the first time I got my first pair of hearing aids when I was doing my Grade 12, it was very challenging in every way and thoughts of giving up were so too much to handle, but her kindness and support gave me the reason to go on and take on the world, I then went to the University of Johannesburg to do my Diploma in Accounting,  another environment that was too noisy and exhausting, it was very difficult although I did manage to pass my studies in Record time, that was the greatest achievement and because Dr Mariekie Cilliers’s Audiologist in Benoni was very supportive in ensuring that my hearing aids offered the most  comfortable sound.

In 2016 I got Internship in Finance another new completely different world and I got my second pair of hearing aids in July 2016 , the new ones were extremely too amazing, and offered the most impressive technology, and while I know that my hearing loss keeps on deteriorating, I would say hearing aids have changed my life for the better.

In 2016 again Dr Mariekie Cilliers Audiologist advised that I needed to do tests for the possibility of Cochlear Implant, at that time I was not very convinced with it, and I eventually agreed to do the tests, she took me to the JCIC , were I met with Leone Nauta who gave me all the necessary information on the CI, she did tests and I was considered a potential candidate for the CI, and we also had the best news of my life , I got funding to undergo the CI , while she took me to almost all my appointments , her support has changed my life for the better, I would not have done it without her, I am happy that I am now in the process of getting Cochlear Implant, I look forward to a new world, and I will remain too grateful for such an opportunity of a lifetime.

Thank you very much Dr Marieke Cilliers Audiology, for the best service, if I could recommend an Audiology it would be definitely Dr Marieke Cilliers Audiology
