The shaking air rattled Lord Edward's membrane tympani; the interlocked malleus, incus, and stirrup bones were set in motion so as to agitate the membrane of the oval window and raise an infinitesimal storm in the fluid of the labyrinth. The hairy endings of the auditory nerve shuddered like weeds in a rough sea; a vast number of obscure miracles were performed in the brain, and Lord Edwards ecstatically whispered "Bach!"

Aldus Huxley, Point Counter Point (1928)

“Hello, my name is Sam Veale.  I’m one of the independent audiologists for Heartland Hearing & Balance.  Please read the page: "Why See Us?” or contact us for further information.  If you are interested in our backgrounds, you can read the Our People page on this site.  

“The two most important things for ANY person seeing ANY health professional are:

  • TO BE UNDERSTOOD.  We will take time with you to LISTEN, and to make sure we understand what you are explaining to us.
  • TO UNDERSTAND.  We will do our best to help you understand your test results, and how they will be contributing to your own experience of hearing/communication, or balance/dizziness/vertigo.
