Chennai: To provide specialised speech and hearing therapies, Apollo Clinic has tied-up with HearFon that will give access to a range of treatment and hearing aids by qualified audiologists. The partnership which was signed Tuesday, will be implemented in Chennai, Bengaluru and Hyderabad among other cities.
