Who We Are

The Ear Care Centre was founded by Dr. David Crispin-Chavez in 2012, to provide a very much sought after ear care service to the population in East Surrey. The present constantly evolving NHS situation may not always meet patient expectations fully. In a time when more and more people ask for flexibility, rapid access together with professional care, we aim to satisfy the needs of our clients with the same high standards provided in our NHS clinics, with that personal touch. 


Our staff are dedicated to your ear health. We see a wide variety of conditions,varying from ear wax removal and earache symptoms to chronic ear infections. We understand the importance of regular check-ups and the need for ongoing treatment. After your visit with us, you will leave your appointment with a better understanding of your condition and all of your questions answered. We are maintaining our goal in delivering high-quality ear care to all our patients throughout Surrey and the surrounding counties.
