Message from Dr. Helton
At Helton Hearing Care, we focus on a patient/family centered approach and strive to empower patients who desire better hearing. It is estimated that approximately 31.5 million people report a hearing difficulty; that is around 10% of the U.S. population. Many people don’t realize the significant impact a hearing loss can have on the quality of life. Hearing loss is often a hidden handicap. Friends and family may notice the problem before the patient becomes aware of it. It can be difficult to interact in the most common situations like a family dinner, a small gathering or watching television. Appropriate treatment can literally change people’s lives by improving their ability to re-connect with what matters most.
We emphasize the importance of having a comprehensive and thorough hearing evaluation, not just a hearing screening or pure-tone air conduction hearing test. One of our primary goals is to help educate patients as to their treatment options. If test results indicate amplification is appropriate, we are pleased to offer a wide range of options. Helton Hearing Care is respectful of patients’ financial concerns as well as their hearing needs based on lifestyle. We realize purchasing hearing instruments is a significant financial investment as well as a long term decision. Also, we believe our jobs aren’t finished until our patients’ lives are improved. Because of this, our team of talented and committed professionals always insures that each patient receives the individualized hearing healthcare they need.
In addition, the patients are educated regarding the importance of follow up care. Many patients think the path to better hearing ends when they purchase amplification. We work hard to consistently deliver services years after the purchase, to insure peak performance of the hearing aids. This important relationship continues well beyond the time of the initial fitting.
Today’s patients are well educated and are free to make their own decisions as to where they receive services. At Helton Hearing Care, we believe that by empowering people with the information they need, as well as offering a wide range of options, we give the patients access to the hearing healthcare they deserve.
Call us today and you will see that visiting Helton Hearing Care is the best way to take the first step toward improved hearing. We are looking forward to seeing you.
