Inspiring Stories from Our Patients | Why You Should Seek Out Hearing Care

If you suspect you have some form of a hearing loss, you’re not alone. The fact that you’re here reading this is already a great step in the right direction toward better, healthier hearing.

For a lot of people out there with a hearing loss, the hardest part is starting their hearing healthcare journey.

Whether due to cost concerns, worries about feeling old with hearing aids, or ignoring their hearing loss challenges entirely, people can often wait up to a decade before seeking out assistance for their hearing loss.

If you suspect you have some form of a hearing loss, you’re not alone. The fact that you’re here reading this is already a great step in the right direction toward better, healthier hearing.

We asked some of our patients to share their stories: when they realized they had a hearing loss, what their experiences at Flex were like, and their thoughts after receiving their own personalized, unique hearing care and hearing aid technology.

Our first story comes from Vicki, whose husband is also grateful for our help.

“I first realized I had a hearing loss when my husband complained about the TV being too loud or having my friends repeating what they had said,” Vicki says. “Then I realized I must have a hearing problem. I felt like, okay, I have been warned!”

Vicki’s first impressions of Flex Audiology were three key words that we aspire to be every day: clean, friendly, and compassionate.

“Before hearing aids, my volume on the TV was 20,” Vicki continues. “Now, with the hearing aids, the volume is at 12. I was so amazed, and my husband was so thankful that I have hearing aids.”

Vicki highly recommends Flex Audiology to her friends and family.

Next, we asked the proactive Edwina to share her experience with Flex.

“I didn’t have any concerns prior to my appointment,” Edwina shares. “It was time to do something about my problem.”

Edwina first noticed her trouble hearing when she visited her daughter – she and her family spoke very quietly, and the TV was on a low volume. “I could not hear anything. I decided it was time to do something about it. I was missing out on a lot.”

Edwina is very grateful for her hearing aids, and she was impressed by our office and the warm welcome she received before her first appointment.

“I would advise anyone who is considering an appointment that they should do this for themselves and will be happy they did! I feel very confident and relaxed wearing hearing aids.”

Edwina wishes she had sought out hearing care earlier – she’s glad to be able to join in the conversation again.

Finally, we have Jhon, whose concerns were very relatable.

After constantly asking people to repeat themselves, Jhon realized he had a hearing loss challenge – but didn’t seek out care for ten years.

“Before my appointment, I was concerned about getting old!” Jhon tells us. “People seeing me wear hearing aids! Embarrassing!”

He came prepared to his first appointment with a list of questions that Dr. Person happily received and answered thoroughly.

“Dr. Person was great! She did an extensive hearing exam and explained what she was doing! She made me comfortable, as I was a little anxious at first!”

Jhon loves being able to hear properly, especially since his daughter no longer complains about his hearing. He highly recommends Flex Audiology.
