As you may or may not know, I am on a mission. Every study in the last 5 years shows a definitive link between hearing ability and dementia/memory/cognitive functioning and falling. I spend most of my time educating the community and doctors about the importance of having hearing checkups as a routine part of every physical. But until that happens, I want to test as many people as possible. This year, our goal is to test 3,000 people through the Fisher Foundation for Hearing Health Care. I am asking you to help us reach our goal. I am asking you to help us reach our goal by giving me the names and phone numbers of everyone you know over 50.
Most people haven’t had a hearing test since grade school. Most people wait way too long to seek help and then…it’s too late. When the auditory system of the brain is deprived stimulation it deteriorates. Hearing, like most diseases and health problems, needs to be detected and treated as early as possible: before it becomes irreversible. We will perform baseline hearing checkups at no charge for anyone over 50 (the age when hearing is most likely to begin declining). I know you have many acquaintances, friends and family members that have never had a hearing test. I am asking you to help me… as I have helped you.
Yours in better hearing,
Dr. Ronna Fisher, Au.D.
Founder and President of Hearing Health Center
My first appointment with The Hearing Health Center was the first day of the rest of my (new) life. My experience was life changing. Literally. Words matter and yet I have difficulty finding the words that could begin to truly describe my larger than life experience. Today I feel healthier as a result of my “ear buds”, as my youngest grandson calls them. I can hear the precious voices of my son and my grandchildren; I can hear them laugh again. Cry again. Ask me to play with them. I can hear the wind in the trees, the birdies singing and the rain as it comes down from the Heavens. I’m not exhausted from trying to hear all the time. Gone is the need to isolate myself because I can’t hear. I have my life back, all thanks to the kindest, caring, most competent team (who really feel more like friends) at the Oakbrook Hearing Health Center.
“Because of the outstanding professional care that I have received from you and everyone there at the Hearing Health Center I feel compelled now to write to you in order to express my regard and my appreciation for the wonderful work you are doing on behalf of so many of us who have suffered from hearing impairment.
Your patience, your constant updating of better procedures, your willingness to follow up, and the results that I have experienced because of you and your coworkers there has truly improved the quality of life for me and for so many others who have benefited not only from your expertise but from how sincerely you all do care about your patients.
You don’t just do it the “easy way.” You do it the right way! And I am but one of many people who is able to enjoy myself more fully because of what you have done on my behalf.”
“Now that I know I can hear, the only ‘problem’ that remains for me is continuing to learn how to hear. I’ve spent most of the last 23 days going through Hearing Health Center’s step-by-step guide to adjusting to my new hearing aid. That book—written by Hearing Health Center staff—is worth the price of the hearing aid! From the moment I first walked in the door at Hearing Health Center, I was treated like a friend, not a patient!”
“The hearing analysis was very thorough, and, as a result, my hearing aids have made a positive difference in my life.
“It is the one doctor’s office I always feel better leaving. It is a friendly family feeling. I would highly recommend the Hearing Health Center! Hearing Health Center is the Mayo Clinic for hearing.”
“The Hearing Health Center experience was EXCELLENT! The staff was very caring and understanding of my situation! They’re always there when I have any problems with my hearing or hearing devices. I always recommend Hearing Health Center when anyone asks me about my hearing devices. My friends and family are very impressed because they didn’t even know I wore hearing devices until I told them!”
“After trying other hearing doctors, I found Hearing Health Center to help me with tinnitus and limited hearing in my left ear. I am so thankful I found them. The doctors at HHC are extremely knowledgeable, understanding, and helpful. In my opinion, there are no better people for your hearing health than those at Hearing Health Center. Their products are superlative, and the doctors of audiology are very attentive to setting your aids correctly and not just turning them on and sending you on your way. I tell all my friends with hearing problems, ‘Go to Hearing Health Center! You will NOT be disappointed.'”
“It is so much easier to hear my family and friends speaking. Hearing better and clearer makes my life more enjoyable and pleasant. I no longer need to ask, ‘What did you say?’ Dr. Jing is very thorough in explaining what I need to know. He is patient and concerned that my hearing aids are amplifying sound correctly and for my needs. Everyone at the Center is always cheerful and helpful.”
“I am ever so happy with the audiologist, support staff, and follow up. It couldn’t be better (and I have 20 years of experience at the other place).”
“Sounds have become clearer; speaking, listening, and understanding have all improved. So has my confidence at social meetings. I would encourage all in need to make an appointment.”
“I can’t imagine better attention to my hearing at any other facility than Oak Brook, IL. Thank you.”
