My wife was pushing me to address my hearing loss. Every time we went out with people, I had to ask that they repeat themselves constantly. I knew I couldn’t hear. I just didn’t know how much hearing I had lost. When the Audiologist did a hearing test and fit me with hearing aids, it was a night and day difference. The hearing aids were so comfortable! I drove halfway home before I remembered that I had them on! When I speak with friends of mine who have hearing loss, some of them are hesitant to make an appointment with an Audiologist. Their biggest concerns seem to be:
1. The hearing aids won’t work.
2. They will spend money unnecessarily.
3. They don’t want to admit that they have difficulty hearing.
To these concerns, I often respond,“The right hearing aids will change your life.” Becoming a patient at Decibels Audiology and Hearing Aid Center and investing in high-end devices has changed my life. My wife is ecstatic – she is so happy with the difference! When I am out to dinner or at an event, I never have to ask others to repeat themselves, which used to frustrate me. But it’s the little things that stand out to me. I walk every morning, and now I can hear the birds. I can hear my own footsteps. I can hear the waves on the Gulf. Before, I couldn’t hear those sounds. What a difference!”
