MJ has been coming to the Zephyrhills office of Gardner Audiology for 12 years. She has severe hearing loss with very understanding of speech. She came in a month ago with her five year old hearing aids, asking if I could help her hear better. She was feeling very isolated from her family.
MJ was fitted with Starkey Z Series i90 Receiver in the Canal hearing aids as a part of our Field Study. She returned in one week with tears in her eyes. She told me she never thought she would be able to hear conversation again. She was thrilled. We discussed the fact that she will never hear anywhere near 100% and she will still need to watch people’s faces when they talk to her. She understood that completely, but was happy to be hearing so much better.
MJ purchased her hearing aids today, very grateful for the opportunity to participate in the Field Study to see if new hearing aids would help her become part of the conversation once again!
