Are you a “loud talker”?  Do you answer many questions or comments with a “huh, what, say again?”  Have you fooled yourself into thinking that hearing loss only affects “old people”?  Well think again.  The majority (65%) of people with hearing loss are actually younger than 65.

That’s right boys and girls, the generation that wasn’t going to “trust anyone over 30”, the same ones that are saying that “60 is the new 40” might just need hearing instruments.  You know who you are, and you know that the time has come to face facts and have your hearing checked.  As a matter of fact you can check your hearing online at http://www.highlineaudiology.com.

BTB’s newest Advertiser, Highline Audiology, can put you on the road to better hearing in as little as one visit (EDITOR’S NOTE: scroll all the way to the bottom of this story for our own personal testimonial). You just need to make the call. Your spouse, partner, friends, kids and business associates will be glad you did.

Once you’ve determined that maybe, just maybe, you might have hearing loss, know that the caring hearing professionals at Highline Audiology have over 50 years of combined experience in helping Highline hear better.

After evaluating your hearing,  your hearing professional will meet with you and a family member or friend to discuss your individual hearing loss, and how it affects your communication and your life, then make recommendations to improve your hearing and your listening skills.  As hearing aids are usually recommended, your hearing professional can often program instruments for you to listen to and you may even be able to take them for a no-charge test-drive. This will let you determine if you notice benefit in your real-world situations.

At Highline Audiology they like to say “The best hearing aids are the ones our patient will wear!”   And they won’t work for you in the box!  Using state of the art instruments from Oticon, Widex, and Phonak and other world leaders in hearing aid technology, hearing professionals fit hearing instruments that feel comfortable, are scarcely noticeable, and bring back the clarity you’ve been missing.

The staff at Highline Audiology includes: Standing: Eileen Freed & Rebecca Grady, Audiologists and Co-owners; Middle: Andria Reid-Caro, Hearing Aid Specialist, Jennifer Vert, Audiologist, Shannon Bushong, Office Manager, Gloria Turner, Office Assistant, Judy Bevers, Office Assistant; Front: Colleen Collignon, Practice Development Rep.

Highline Audiology has been a part of the Burien community for 27 years. The Speech and Hearing Center was opened as a department of Highline Community Hospital in 1981.  Co-owner Rebecca Grady started practicing audiology there in 1983 and was joined by co-owner Eileen Freed in 1987. In 2000, they purchased the Hearing Center from the hospital forming Highline Audiology, P.C. a private audiology practice. Audiologist, Jennifer Vert and Hearing Aid Specialist, Andria Reid-Caro round out the team of hearing professionals. The hearing center has been in its current location In Ambaum Plaza at 14400 Ambaum Blvd. S.W., across from Huckleberry Square since 1990.  Highline Audiology’s outstanding support staff: Office Manager, Shannon Bushong, and Office Assistants, Gloria Turner and Judy Bevers are happy to schedule appointments, answer questions and help with paperwork and billing concerns.

[EDITOR’S NOTE: I’ve suffered hearing loss since around 1993 when I stood too close to a speaker at Toe’s Tavern in Pasadena, CA. The ringing in my right ear from that night just never stopped. I got used to it, but it bugged my wife bigtime. It bugged her Mom. It bugged my Mom. In fact, it seemed to bug everyone but me. That is, until I realized I wasn’t always understanding my kids, or I had to ask “what?” then get the harsh “never mind” response from my wife. So once I heard (pun intended) that Highline Audiology was going to Advertise with us, I decided it was time to finally get my own hearing test. I got it at 10:30am on Wed. morning, Dec. 3rd, and by Noon I was leaving their office with two brand new hearing aids and some brand new hearing abilities. I’m still in my 40s, so I was one of those old-school types who didn’t think he needed one. But let me tell you right here and now – I can actually hear again! My wife will now be able to sit on my right side and whisper to me. I’ll be able to hear my children when they’re talking to me from the back seat of the car. And the Oticons I’m “test driving” are not very noticeable either. In less than two hours, Highline Audiology changed my life for the better, and I heartily welcome them to the B-Town Blog!]
