Eva encourages others to “Go for it, as I have advised three people to go.”

 

While hearing loss can often be disguised by lip reading and facial cues, Eva first realized she had a hearing loss when she started feeling left out of conversations at the dinner table.

She didn’t have any concerns, but she just wanted to hear better. In one instance, she describes how her mother didn’t like to wear hearing aids, so she made a smart analogy about eyeglasses.

“One point, I collected all her eyeglasses and tossed them in the garbage. I asked her if she was ashamed of wearing glasses. There is no difference in wearing seeing aids or hearing aids.”

She remembers her first impressions with AVI New England well, as she was “very well advised to have the ear canals open and not blocked by the little ones that totally block the canal and distort your voice.”

Hearing aids immediately changed her life and she “went more or less back to following conversations.”
Eva encourages others to “Go for it, as I have advised three people to go.”

Dr. Bauman cares about each person as if they
are his only patient

 

I grew up with a mom who suffered through her own hearing loss never seeking help, and she lost out on so much as a result.

Well, that wasn’t going to be the case for me, so when I realized I too was starting to ask people to repeat themselves many times over, along with suffering the awful sensations of what I believed was tinnitus, I decided to do something about it.

Before I knew about Dr. Bauman, I had sought out another audiologist in my area who tried me out with multiple hearing aids, but to no avail. At that point I realized I needed someone more specialized in tinnitus. I was then introduced to Dr. Bauman and immediately called his office.

The minute I walked into Dr. Bauman’s office, I knew I was in the right place. It’s over an hour’s drive, but I would drive that any day of the week to see him. He is just so knowledgeable, caring, thoughtful, helpful and compassionate. He really does care about each person as if he/she is his only patient.

I thought my problem was just tinnitus, but after he took the time to really get to the root of my problem, he told me I had a hearing loss and gave me all the advice, tools and support to help me. He knows everything there is to know about hearing loss, and he listens and is very insightful. He got to know me well and always makes me feel comfortable every time I see him, which is so important for someone who often feels anxious.

Because of Dr Bauman’s support and expertise, my tinnitus has completely made a 180 and it’s now perfectly manageable. I followed his 8-month program religiously, and I’m so grateful I did, as my life has become a lot more enjoyable now that I am able to manage my tinnitus and hear properly again.
