The National Ear Care Centre, Kaduna, is once again in the media for good reason. It is because of what people who have assessed one service or the other at the facility are saying.
Starting from the reception, patients seem to be okay with the mannerism of those that welcomed them into the facility as some of them that our correspondent was priviledged to talk with commended staff here.
To these patients, management of the facility are on top of their game as reflected in services render by the staff.
One of them is Aisha Hamza.
Aisha said, she was there for the first time though, but the excitement she got from the way she was welcomed would last for a long time.
She described attention she received at the General Emergency and Accidents waiting hall of the facility as “friendly” and “prompt”.

Another patient, Ubaida Musa, a resident of Unguwan Rimi, Kaduna, Kaduna North local government area said, the services were orderly.
“The place is neat and orderly. When I came, I followed the queue and saw the Doctor, who attended to us and told me to be coming with my baby for dressing of the wounds daily,” she said.
For Amina Ahmed who also brought her baby, “we were referred to visit the Ear Care Centre after several doctors in their place of residence, Funtua Local Government Area of Katsina State could not solve their problem.
“We came all the way from Funtua LGA, Katsina State and started visiting the centre a week ago. We have been well attended to and the medical personnel are friendly.
