For years I have been ignoring the fact that I have a hearing loss. I am a very confident person, and I began to lose confidence especially at work, I felt I was not able to provide good patient care; I simply was unable to hear my patients. I went home everyday crying. I have a very dear patient to me that said, the thing he appreciated the most about me was that I always listened to him….however I wasn’t hearing anything he said, and that just broke my heart.
I begrudgingly made an appointment and came in with a huge chip on my shoulder, I felt like I’m 60 years old, I’m falling apart and now I can’t hear? I’m really not that old, I can’t possibly need hearing aids? The receptionist just rolled with me and made me feel very comfortable….Matt Taylor came out to greet me, he was so non-confrontational, gracious, made me feel right at home. Matt’s sharp wit and manner made me feel at ease and he was very encouraging, Matt explained my hearing loss…how not hearing consonants has made my brain actually stop responding to sound and he told me in detail that I’m just as intelligent as ever but I need to help my brain learn to hear again, and how my hearing loss was effecting different area’s of my lifestyle. Makes me cry every time I think about it;Taylor Hearing Centers has changed my life. I went home, said to my husband….can I have hearing aids? He said “Absolutely!” and he wrote out the check. Taylor Hearing Centers ordered my hearing aids and had them dispensed to me in less than a week, I was shocked at the quick turnaround, this process was so seamless, unlike anything I had preconceived it would be like.
When I got the aids…I was amazed they were programmed specifically to my hearing loss, I couldn’t believe the difference. That first day, my radio is normally set on 22 or higher; I was able to have it set on 10 and hear it more clearly than I have heard it in years. I was able to hear conversations going on around me in a busy store. I tell everyone about Taylor Hearing Centers, and with it I say, “Did you notice I don’t say HUH? anymore?”
When I came in for my 1 week check up, I cried and hugged Matt and thanked him for changing my life. My sweet husband has been wearing ear plugs for years to watch TV, I had NO idea how my hearing loss effected him. After day one of my hearing aids, he threw away his ear plugs and now we are able to watch television together. Something so simple but what a huge difference it has made in my life.
I adapted so quickly and easily to my hearing aids that the only time I take them out is to go to bed, they are a part of me, I forget all about them, I even dunked my head under water and panicked, no worries for Taylor Hearing Centers I took them right in and they put them in a dry aid chamber and there was no problem or issues they took care of me immediately.
At Taylor Hearing Centers you can expect impeccable service, cutting edge technology and product, and people with integrity that goes above and beyond. Matt and the entire staff of Taylor Hearing Centers made a difference in my life and I consider them my extended friends and family, I would recommend if you are struggling, don’t struggle anymore, don’t miss conversations, enjoy hearing again. I’m so glad I did!
