We received this lovely testimonial from Rodney E who used one of the services offered on the YEI site. They said the following about Cape Hearing Aids “On 4th April 2022 my wife and I visited the Pinelands branch at the Howard Centre Shopping Mall. The audiologist, Vera, conducted a comprehensive hearing assessment in order to determine if a hearing loss was present. We were very happy with this service.  Thanks to YEI for that healthcare benefit.”

Thank you Rodney for this recommendation. For more details on their offer or to contact them, please click here.

And lastly….
