Meet the team

Reneé Verson
Audiologist/Practice Owner

Reneé Verson graduated from the University of Pretoria in 1993 and began her journey as a dually qualified Audiologist and Speech Therapist in a private practice in Bloemfontein where she also rendered part time services to the Lettie Fouche School for mentally challenged children.

An opportunity to relocate to the friendly Eastern Province coastal city of Port Elizabeth (Gqeberha) resulted in her opening a Private Practice in 1997 and she has been serving children and adults with communication difficulties ever since. Reneé believes that people were created to be connected. Being able to hear one another clearly is a passage door that opens possibilities for people to reconnect to their loved ones and to live a quality life. 

She delights in assisting patients in achieving good hearing and balance skills by applying best practices and patient orientated care. She works together with a loyal, trusted team who focus on excellent patient care and better outcomes for all. She is a proud mother of two.
