If you’re joining us today it probably means you’re looking for help. You might be experiencing hearing loss or looking on behalf of a loved one you suspect needs treatment.

Whatever reason brought you here, you can probably agree that there is a lot of confusing information on the internet about hearing loss.

We’re looking to change that. The best place to get some answers about your hearing loss is from those who have been through it themselves.

Right now, you might be feeling a bit anxious or embarrassed to ask for the help you need. You may not be quite ready to take that next big step, so let some of our inspiring patients tell you about their experiences.

Fran’s Story

“Dr. Shannon changed my life.”

When Fran was receiving treatment for breast cancer, she started experiencing hearing loss as a result of her chemotherapy. When she realized she was having to ask her husband to repeat himself frequently, she knew it was time to seek help.

Although admittedly nervous before coming to Aim Hearing & Audiology, Fran fondly recalls being “blown away” by Dr. Shannon. Fran felt as though she was understood and really listened to during her appointment and was excited to get started on her journey to better hearing.

Fran has seen a complete change in herself and her hearing since joining Aim Hearing & Audiology. Now she can hear comfortably and she has received the support and care she needed to enjoy life and music again.

Dr. William’s Story

“The best audiology experience.”

Before coming to Aim Hearing & Audiology, Dr. William was struggling to communicate with his loved ones and was finding it difficult to hear his wife or friends in crowds. He knew that it was time to seek treatment. He heard about Aim through a friend and decided to pay us a visit.

Dr. William recalls that Dr. Shannon gave him insight and the diagnosis he needed to understand and accept his hearing loss. Calling it the “best audiology experience” he’s ever had, Dr. William is much happier now that he can finally hear—and so is his wife!

Stumbling Blocks

If you, or someone you know, have been reluctant to seek advice about your hearing loss, you’re not alone! It may come as a surprise, but the average person waits roughly seven years from the point of noticing a hearing loss to reaching out for help.

So, why do those suffering from hearing loss wait so long to get the help they need? After all, hearing care is a condition that needs addressing sooner rather than later.

Most commonly, there are two main reasons people delay treatment:

1. Financial Investment

When facing a new investment, such as hearing care or devices, it can be daunting, but when it comes to your health it’s important to explore all of your options. Premium, long-lasting hearing care can give you the confidence and ongoing support you need to get the most out of life.

2. Social Stigma

It can be difficult to accept a new diagnosis, but coming to terms with your hearing loss is the first step to better hearing. It’s true that many are reluctant to start their new journey, but most of our patients regret not getting in touch sooner!

With discreet hearing aid options made to match your skin tone, why not get in touch and see for yourself?
