I’ve been putting off going to see a specialist because my experience before was not very favorable. I spent over $3,000.00 in the ear, hearing aids that did not work. Because of my traveling and the things I do in my life, I really need to hear what people are saying so that I can respond properly and provide the necessary information for me or them. There are many situations that can be life threatening or seriosuly dangerous if you don;t hear properly. I fond myself in situations of adventure and excitement that could be challenging. I had the opportunity to go to Nright Hear for a hearing examination. After the test, they recommended I get a examination for a cochlear implant, and this was the beginning of my experience with The Osborne Head & Neck group and Dr. Nazarian.
I was impressed at how knowledgable Dr. Nazarian was about hearing loss and the solutions necessary to restore my hearing. The degree of my hearing loss was so bad that any option would be any improvement. After tests were done, I felt exited about the possibility of recovering some of my hearing. Surgery was scheduled and completed. The whole process of meeting the staff, the doctors, the exams, tests and the whole bottle of wax was a wonderful experience for me. I felt totally at home and very comfortable during the whole process. In fact, thinking now, this was a very major operation! They made it seem simple and easy. Now that I completed 1 month of activation of cochlear implant, my hearing has been restored to a degree from were its maybe 80-90% better from were it was better. I am hearing everything! My job now is to define each and every sound. Before hand, working with children, I was so frustrated because I couldn’t communicate with children and women with high pitch voices. The improvement is remarkable. I am so excited about my future. I’m thinking about maybe going back to college. There are so many avenues and possibilities available to me because of my new hearing. Thank you Dr. Nazarian and the staff that assist him. I feel blessed to be a patient of this organization. Thank you!
