At Optimal Hearing we understand the time-constraints of life and therefore are able to provide a unique out-of-hours and home visits service to take the hassle out of your hearing appointment.
Jack Leigh is the founder and Chief Audiologist at Optimal Hearing. He completed his Audiology degree at Manchester University, UK. On completion of his degree Jack worked for the NHS as an employed Audiologist. In 2008, Jack moved to Australia and has since worked for a variety of smaller and larger Audiology companies.
Jack is dedicated to helping all individuals reach their hearing potential. It is through his experiences working for other audiology companies that he noticed a serious flaw in the current system. The vast majority of people who require a home-visit are terribly under-serviced. In many cases, waiting up to six months before an appointment, even for emergencies like a broken hearing aid. Jack sincerely believes that all people deserve the right to quality, professional and on-going care and management of their hearing.
Jack is a member of the Australian Society of Audiology with CCP, and is also registered with the Office of Hearing Services as a Qualified Provider. He is passionate about his profession and prides himself on his empathy and consideration for all his clients. He enjoys troubleshooting and improving hearing aid performance, and is particularly proud of his earwax suction technique that allows him to clear out wax in the most comfortable and efficient manner.
