Reliable hearing tests in Cape Town

Our NB Hearing branches are equipped to offer hearing tests in Cape Town with our branches located in Sea Point, Durbanville and the Southern Suburbs (with Main Branch in Wynberg, and sessionally, in Hout Bay and Fish Hoek). Each of our practices have professionally qualified and registered audiologists.

Dr. Natalie Buttress first opened NB Hearing in 1995, in a private hospital in Johannesburg. Subsequently, Dr. Buttress moved to the Cape, and established a professional audiology practice focused on providing comprehensive hearing tests in Cape Town, in Sea Point in 2001. In 2012, the practice expanded to include more audiologists in our branch in Durbanville. We have also been present in the Southern Suburbs since 2017. We are a passionate and close-knit team of audiologists, striving to change the stigma surrounding hearing loss and hearing disorders by providing patients with accurate diagnoses and effective hearing solutions to improve quality of life with ear-related problems.

Your hearing is important. It is what connects people with each other. It also connects our brains to information and the world around us. If you are diagnosed with hearing loss, our audiologists can enable you to reconnect with your loved ones and your world. We offer comprehensive professional services, including hearing tests, fitting of hearing aids, hearing rehabilitation, and counselling, to improve your hearing health as much as possible.

We want to hear from you!
