Denial (also called “do nothing” )
Most everyone tries this solution first. The first step is to tell everyone around you they mumble. Then, you begin to withdraw from social situations and avoid group conversations. Why denial is not a solution for hearing loss, it is usually the first step for the person with one.
When you have decided that denial is not your solution any longer, you should call us for a hearing test. This will cost you nothing, and you will be under no obligation to buy anything. You will, however, be educated on the type of hearing loss you have, and what the appropriate solutions are for it. At this point, you can decide if you are ready to take the step toward better heariong and communications through hearing aids. Getting hearing instruments is a process, not an event. You will have to learn to hear again. This can be difficult for some patients. Give it time and be patient! We are experts in teaching you to use your newfound hearing to your advantage, and without proper training, counseling, attitude, and patience, it will be very difficult to take full advantage of the great technological advancements that have been made in hearing instruments over the years. Call us or email to book an appointment.
