“The staff at SCENT were fantastic to deal with from the initial contact to make an appointment to my sons final appointment. In the time that my son has been coming here we have seen the audiologist, ENT specialist and nursing staff along with front reception staff. All staff took the time to answer any questions I had and also questions my son had too. I couldn’t recommend SCENT highly enough. Thank you SCENT!”
