Three Inspirational Stories From Our Patients | Share This With Somebody Considering Treating Their Hearing Loss

Hearing loss can be a life-altering experience, affecting not just the person suffering from it but also their loved ones.

Though many don’t know it, one of the scariest things for those afflicted with hearing loss can be gathering the courage to get the help they need. There are a number of reasons someone might be hesitant to get help, whether they’re concerned about the treatment methods or feel like there’s a stigma attached to hearing aids.

That’s why it helps people to hear from those who have been in their shoes before—they can see that things really do get better with treatment.

To shed a light on this, I’m proud to share the stories of three incredible individuals who transformed their lives through the services offered at North Houston Hearing Solutions.

The Unheard Voice Finds a Listener

For years, Amy strained to hear in social situations. She often felt disconnected, asking family members to speak louder, and was anxious about conversations in general.

“All interactions with the people at North Houston Hearing Solutions have been great,” she says.

Her concerns about cost and maintenance vanished as she became acclimated with her new hearing aids.

“Testing is painless and very informative. Hearing aid designs have come a long way,” Amy adds.

Her rating for her experience? A resounding 10/10. She heartily recommends our clinic for anyone contemplating hearing aids and says,

“Nobody can even tell I have hearing aids on.”

A Sound Decision at the Workplace

Don first noticed his hearing loss during a critical work meeting. Unable to hear voices from either end of a large conference table, he knew something had to be done.

“The moment I stepped foot inside North Houston Hearing Solutions, I knew I was in the right place,” Don remembers.

Not only did his hearing aids make “sounds much clearer,” but the feature to “cut out” background noise also improved his focus in conversations. Don says,

 “They never tried to sell something I don’t need and always had data to back up their recommendations.”

He rates his experience as 10/10 and strongly urges others to take the first step toward improving their hearing.

Guiding the Guides

Kathy Etten found out about her hearing issues over two decades ago while leading a Girl Scout troop. 

Struggling to hear soft-spoken children made her realize the gravity of her situation.

Meeting Lacey Houston at our clinic made her feel “very comfortable, like talking to a good friend,” she shares.

With her new hearing aids, Kathy feels “much more comfortable and confident in group situations.” Her advice to others? “Your life is about to change in the most positive way. You have to relearn how to recognize some of the sounds you have lost over time.”

Kathy’s rating for her experience is a perfect 10/10.
