A resident of Cowichan Valley
“I have had a hearing aid for some 8 years and knew the technology was improving so I decided to investigate recent models. I consulted with three audiologists in the Duncan area but the only one I felt comfortable with was Dr Terence Miranda. He had a much wider perspective on the issues and options, excellent qualifications, highly up-to-date knowledge and equipment, and a greater understanding of my objectives. He explained to me the nature of my hearing loss in terms that I could visualize and understand, and clearly described a range of options to improve my hearing in such a way that I could make a well-informed choice.
What was most impressive, however, was his follow-up once I had purchased a new hearing aid. He has regularly checked its effectiveness, adjusted it for maximum benefit to suit my life style, and always been available if I had any concerns. It is a pleasure to deal with him and his staff.
I have a much more severe hearing loss in one ear than the other. Dr Miranda recommended that I have a medical check up to determine whether there was any underlying cause. My doctor felt that this was highly unlikely but, on Dr Miranda’s recommendation, referred me to a specialist who also felt there should be no cause for concern but arranged for me to have an MRI. The neurologist found a substantial tumour had grown to press on the auditory nerve that, fortunately, appears to be benign but whose growth requires regular checking as there could be severe side-effects. It is not pleasant be in this situation, but without Dr Miranda’s scrupulous attention to detail I might never have known about the problem until it was far more serious.
I do not usually write such notes but felt it appropriate to do so on this occasion to help others to access an outstanding professional who has very fortunately chosen to practice in our community.”

“I chose Resonance Hearing Clinic because tests and follow ups were performed on the premises by a Doctor of Audiology, located locally at the Valleyview Centre. Compared to others I’ve tried, I received customer satisfaction, staff assistance, solid recommendations and a choice of various suitable aids.”

“I retired from the Canadian Forces in 2009 and moved from Ontario to Duncan BC. One of the more challenging tasks in a long distance move is re-establishing good relationships with care providers in your new community. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have found RESONANCE HEARING CLINIC for ongoing care for my hearing loss. Terence Miranda and Angela Nessel are relaxed and empathetic and provide the best Audiology care and advice. They exemplify their motto; Improving Hearing, Enhancing Life.”

“The musicians plugs are an investment as they are saving my hearing. They cut out all of the extra ‘clatter’ in loud places and I can carry on a conversation easier. They go wherever I go. And Andrew’s young ears… he’s loving them. He says he can hear everything so much better in the band with them. He also wears them in the car to cut out the noise.”
Donna from Shawnigan Lake
“Dr. Miranda has fitted me with two small miracles that have opened up my world. I didn’t know this new technology existed. I have been smiling and grateful ever since. I hope ANYONE experiencing the isolation and frustration due to hearing loss, take the time to see Dr. Terence Miranda. It has been the most gratifying appointment I’ve ever been through. To hear birds, my pond trickling, my family and friends and not constantly saying “excuse me” is such an uplifting change. I couldn’t be happier!”
