Hearing Aid Feedback

Have you ever heard someone’s hearing aid buzzing and whistling? Nobody wants their hearing aids to whistle.

In both cases, sound from the hearing aid leaks out of the ear and is re-amplified by the […]

They do not realize that hearing loss has a far greater impact. Over the last ten years there have been numerous studies linking […]

Earwax and Hearing Loss

One of the most common causes of hearing loss is earwax, or cerumen, blocking sound from reaching the eardrum. This occurs when the wax is pushed back toward the eardrum or if the ears produce more wax than is needed. Earwax is also the most common cause of hearing aid malfunctions. A tiny amount of […]

Hearing Loss and End-of-Life Care

“I know I should wear hearing aids, but why should I bother?  I don’t know how much longer I’m going to be around!” We hear this kind of response all the time in our many offices.  There is usually a moment of laughter and a casual disagreement of their objection.  The truth, according to new […]
