A Note to My Patients From WNC Ear Nose & Throat:

I apologize for leaving WNC ENT without being able to tell you!  I was not allowed to send you a letter nor take your contact information with me when I left.  Please let me know your phone number and address.  Either email me or call me.  I'd love to keep in touch!

Aural Rehabilitation and Auditory Processing
Too many times my patients have told me, “I can hear, but I can't understand.”
Hearing is a sense, and listening is an active skill which requires practice.  As we decode the human genome and learn more about how the brain works, it is clear to Doctors of Audiology that a properly fitting hearing instrument is the beginning of not just hearing, but also of understanding the world around us.  However, it is just the first step. Then the brain must relearn how to hear with a hearing aid and to organize incoming information in order to understand it. So it makes sense to keep our brains in top working order to slow down changes in our processing and memory. 

Untreated hearing loss may lead to dementia or Alzheimer's disease.  Several sites with scientifically proven benefits are www.lacecentral.com and www.positscience.org.  If you don't have access to a computer, I will be happy to bring the program to you or to order a Lace DVD for you.
