Margie Nel, the founder of Acoustic Appliances, has joined Dr Julien Nel in his retirement and is enjoying smelling the roses in her garden. She has now handed over the reins to her daughter, Katherine. The business has a strong 30 year history in Port Elizabeth and has helped many hard of hearing people. With the addition of our new Audiologist, we are now able to test children from the age of 3.
Katherine Pearse qualified as a Hearing Aid Acoustician from The University of Pretoria in 2010. She decided, after a career of being a Chef, she wanted to join the family business. Kathy has been with the practice for 11yrs and is thoroughly enjoying helping the hard of hearing in Port Elizabeth.
Lené Wiggett is our Audiologist who joined the practice in the beginning of 2019. She graduated from The University of Pretoria in 2017. In 2018 she completed her Community Service (Zuma) year at Cradock Hospital. She loves helping our patients and has a soft spot in her heart for children.
We are passionate about helping people and give a professional and honest service to the hard of hearing society, with full diagnostic hearing testing and fitting the latest, world leading, Phonak hearing aids.
