Meet DeAnn – Our Patient Care Coordinator

What’s your favorite season?

Spring – it always signifies a new beginning and longer days. It means I get to go outside when I get home during the week and feel the sunshine on my face. I love the smell of the earth as I turn the soil in my garden beds. I usually feel rejuvenated after having spent most of the winter inside hibernating.

Who is your favorite sports team?

Ohio State Buckeyes. Go Bucks!!!What is your favorite food?

Ice Cream. Any flavor. Any time of year.Dog or Cat?

Dogs.

If you could travel anywhere in the world for free, where would you go?

Patagonia. It’s my dream vacation to hike to the tip of South America and then take a cutter ship into Antarctica.

DeAnn was raised in Hot Springs and attended Southern Arkansas University. As a patient care coordinator, she has the pleasure of helping patients. Her favorite thing about being part of the team is “having co-workers that genuinely care about making a positive difference in our patients’ lives. It’s very rewarding to hear from a patient about the improvement to their quality of life.”

Her favorite patient success story has been assisting a patient that came for an appointment after several years of putting off help for financial reasons. Upon finding a solution for the patient and fitting her with new hearing aids, the patient wept while telling the team how much she appreciated what they had done for her and how she could now hear her grandchildren’s voices.

Outside of the office, DeAnn spends time with her family and her new Goldendoodle pup called Samson.

Deann - patient care coordinator

I’ve been very pleased with Alabama Hearing Associates. Whether you call or are there in person, they are the kindest and friendliest people you’ll ever meet. I’ve seen both doctors and have been very pleased with their concern and care. My appointments have been at the Huntsville office and Deann, the receptionist, is always smiling, friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Alabama Hearing Associates.

Basic Hearing Test

A basic hearing test begins with an air conduction test. You will be seated in a soundproof booth and single-use, foam earphones will be inserted into your ear canals. The Audiologist will ask you to push a button or raise your hand when you barely hear a series of beeps (tones) presented at various frequencies (pitches) to obtain your air conduction thresholds.

To determine whether your hearing loss is a conductive (mechanical) loss, sensorineural (permanent) loss or combination of the two, we perform a bone conduction test.  

For this test, a head band is place on the bone behind one of the ears to obtain your bone conduction thresholds. This process provides a different form of sound transmission using vibration, which bypasses the eardrum and the middle ear bones and directly stimulates the auditory nerve. When you hear the beeps/tones, you will push a button or raise your hand.

If bone conduction thresholds are better than air conduction thresholds (through the foam inserts), you have a conductive hearing loss. This suggests a problem with the mechanical structures (moving parts) of the ears.

Conductive hearing loss is often a medically treatable condition for which we will provide you with a referral to an Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) physician. However, if bone and air conduction thresholds match, it indicates a sensorineural hearing loss (permanent), and the treatment will likely involve hearing aids.
