I intend to present honest, professional information about hearing loss and hearing rehabilitation. Some blogs may only present the positive aspects of hearing aids. Other blogs may dote on the horror stories. I’ll tell you the good, the bad, and the ugly. I’m probably going to offend some of my audiologist colleagues. So be it. I’m probably going to upset some hearing aid wearers or potential wearers. So be it. But I’ll do my best to give you the most truthful, useful information about hearing loss and hearing aids on the Web.
I’ll take you behind the scenes so you can see how an audiologist makes decisions that affect your life. I’ll summarize cutting edge research from the best minds in the profession and tell you about the latest and greatest hearing technology.
I’ll answer questions to the best of my ability. Keep in mind that audiology is a face-to-face profession. Some of my answers to clients require their physical presence for an exam but I’ll do my best to provide a usable answer with all the caveats associated with a remote relationship.
This is not the No Spin Zone. No one is without bias so I’ll do my best to show you mine. There’s a lot of hearing loss out there with nothing done about it. What’s the end game when nothing is done? That’s the scenario I’ll write about in my next post. Come back in a few days and read it.
