‘The world was a new place for me’
About 7 years ago, I began to realize I was saying ‘What?’ a lot when others spoke to me. I couldn’t catch every word on the TV, and I avoided calling my family who all live in other states because I wasn’t able to understand every word over the phone. I began to notice I was interacting with co-workers less and less. When my husband became frustrated with always repeating himself when he spoke to me, I finally went for a hearing test.
– Carolyn Seeley
‘I was blown away with Susan’s compassion and helpfulness’
I realized that I had a hearing loss when I had to ask people to repeat themselves almost all the time. My husband also asked me one night if I could hear the bird outside our bedroom window. I thought he was making a joke, but he was not. I thought that since I could hear ‘fairly’ well and that I wasn’t deaf that I was perhaps over-exaggerating my hearing concerns.
– Diana Dowdy
‘Better hearing has returned my life to normal’
My husband kept telling me I needed to do something. I kept asking him to repeat himself. But when I finally admitted I needed help was when I noticed I wasn’t hearing my customers. I was constantly asking them to repeat themselves and it became embarrassing.
– Janice Hudgens
‘Life is so much more enjoyable’
I became concerned about my hearing when I started not hearing the doorbell ring when I was in the bedroom. My sons noticed and said, ‘Mom, you don’t hear anything!
Then I realized I didn’t understand what was being said in Mass many times or in restaurants. I was a little embarrassed to admit I had a hearing problem.
– Jeannie Anderson
‘Having better hearing has tremendously changed my life’
I started having hearing challenges in 2003. I was still working at that time and I was concerned how colleagues might respond to my situation. Dr. Susan was the first audiologist I saw. I heard the advertisement on the radio.
My first appointment with her was very positive and this was important to me. Dr. Susan was genuinely understanding my hearing problems.
– John (Jack) L. Smith
‘My life has dramatically improved since I can hear’
I realized I had a hearing problem when I was in a meeting with two co-workers. I could not understand what they were saying. At home, I had trouble hearing my husband and the TV.
Prior to my first appointment at Alabama Hearing, I had no fears. My father has used hearing aids for over 40 years.
– Julie Brown
‘I never knew I was missing so much!’
A few years ago, I realized I couldn’t hear the students sitting in the back of my classroom. At first, I think I was in denial. In fact, I couldn’t believe that I needed hearing aids at my age.
Alabama Hearing Associates were highly recommended by a trusted friend, and I was not very happy with the first clinic I went to.
– Karen L. Young
‘Very professional and explained everything very clearly’
I was attending a lectureship and realized that I could not hear what was being said. I knew my hubby was hard of hearing, so I leaned over and said, ‘When we return home, we are getting our hearing checked.
– Linda G Romine
‘We are an Alabama Hearing Associates family’
I first became concerned about my hearing when I was subbing at school and realized there was something about the tone of the children’s voices – I couldn’t distinguish the words. Before my first appointment with Alabama Hearing, I was worried about the cost of the hearing aids.
– Monesa (Missy) Andrews
