Considering Treating Your Hearing? | Find Out More from Our Patients

by | Oct 1, 2023 | Hearing Loss, Patient Resources

One of the things we hear most from our patients is how reluctant they are to ask for help for their hearing challenges.  

If this sounds like you or someone you know, rest assured this is a natural reaction. Coming to terms with hearing loss can be difficult and leave you feeling isolated.  

We asked some of our patients to tell you about their experiences—from their anxieties before seeking help to how it’s affected their lives since. 

Gloria’s Story

After being diagnosed with tinnitus, Gloria wanted to find some peace of mind. She visited ZN Audiology looking to calm her nerves and find out if she had any hearing loss as a result of the tinnitus.  

After many in-depth hearing tests and a comprehensive assessment, Gloria was relieved to discover she didn’t have any hearing loss.  

Recalling her anxiety, Gloria is grateful for the “positive, friendly, polite, and caring” team that she was greeted and treated by at ZN Audiology.  

If you or a loved one is concerned about the effects of tinnitus, get in touch and we’d be happy to help you learn more. 

Daniel’s Story

Daniel was experiencing hearing loss and, as a result, anxiety.  

Looking to find some reassurance, Daniel contacted ZN Audiology. After a thorough, comprehensive hearing assessment, he was informed that he did have hearing loss.  

Now fitted with hearing aids that are right for him, Daniel shares that they make a “big difference” and urges anyone facing anxiety about hearing loss to be seen sooner rather than later! 

Stumbling Blocks

If you’re still feeling uncertain about taking that next step to better hearing, you’re not alone. Many people experiencing hearing loss are reluctant to seek the help and support they need. In fact, it takes an average of seven years from noticing hearing loss to getting professional help.

Why is this?

There are two common roadblocks when someone is considering treating their hearing loss. 

  1. Financial Investment 
  2. Social Stigma
