Until recently, I have not given this question much thought. For the most part my hearing has been pretty good. However, recently, not only have I had several people close to me experience hearing loss, as I age, I am starting to question just how good my own hearing is.
So, when I was recently contacted by Lyndsay Bozec, the owner of a new Audiology Clinic in Clayton Park, I jumped at the chance to go visit with Lyndsay to learn more about what an Audiologist does.
What I experienced was not what I was expecting. It was not at all like most “clinics” I have experienced. Clayton Park Audiology is bright and clean and inviting. Lyndsay has a delightful personality, she is open and honest, and it is evident after chatting for just a short time, that she has your best interests in mind. She doesn’t just want to sell you a hearing aid, she truly wants to find out what issues you are having and why, and then develop a treatment plan that is in your best interest.
Clayton Park Audiology opened in June 2023. When I asked Lyndsay how it was going she said, “Well I’m trying not to talk about that too much, because it’s been going a little better than I expected at this point in time.” I can see why it is going well for Lyndsay, she is attentive, paying close attention to what I was saying and listening to every word and then thoughtfully answering my questions.
While noise induced hearing loss is most prevalent, hearing loss can be triggered by many things, heart disease, hypertension, diabetes to mention a few and hearing loss can affect many aspects of our lives. That’s why it is important to find someone who Truly cares about you and can properly diagnose a person’s condition. That’s the feeling I got when I visited with Lyndsay.
Naturally, once you recognize you have hearing loss the next step is to try to improve your situation and often that means using hearing aids. When the conversation turned to the subject of hearing aids, Lyndsay said, “It’s important to have an in-depth conversation when discussing the use of hearing aids. It is not a simple straight forward process. People think they just put them in and that’s it, but it’s not, you need to train your brain to get used to them, there is an adjustment period. It is not enough to just give them to the client and send them out the door. There is much more to it than that.”
I think this was what impressed me most about Lyndsay Bozec. She is so sincere, so open and honest about making sure you understand all the issues associated with hearing loss. I highly recommend Lyndsay if you are having hearing issues.
