Hearing Resources (200)
You’ve already taken the most important step in your hearing health journey booking an appointment with your audiologist to discuss hearing aids. Congratulations! You’re on your way to better hearing.
But, how do you know what to expect? When it comes to your hearing health and hearing aids, what is “normal,” and what might warrant a trip back to the office? The process is different for everyone, but here’s a general overview of what to expect during your consultation, during the adjustment phase with your new hearing aids and over the long-term course of your hearing aid use.
We are proud to congratulate our very own Chief Audiology Resident, Jessica Woodson, on her award winning presentation in the National Student Business Plan competition held by the Academy of Doctors of Audiology (ADA). Her hard-work and determination over the course of this past year won her first place honors in this competition bringing home a $5,000 award! Jessica's strategic business plan focused on audiology services based in New York City, including concierge audiology, tele-health communications, and a hybrid billing approach making it easier for individuals with hearing loss to get the care they need.
What is an Audiologist?
In honor of National Audiology Awareness Month in October, Audio Help throughout Manhattan wants to educate our community on the importance of hearing health care.
Over 36 million Americans of all ages suffer from hearing loss – that’s four times the amount of people living in New York City! Untreated hearing loss affects all aspects of one’s life, from home to work, often leading to feelings of depression and isolation.
Dr. Natalie Abergel joined Audio Help Hearing Centers after receiving her Bachelor’s Degree in Speech and Hearing Sciences from Indiana University and later her Doctorate of Audiology from Wichita State University. She has developed a unique skillset due to her broad range of clinical rotations, including vestibular assessment, pediatrics and Central Auditory Processing Disorders assessment.
Dr. Jennifer Donath joined our team in the spring of 2016 and practices in Greenwich, CT and our NY offices. She has 20 years of experience working in the field of audiology at top hospitals, private practices and convalescent homes in CT and NY. Her experience has enriched her knowledgebase, refined her skills in treating patients with hearing loss, and enabled her to build a strong rapport with leading hearing aid manufacturers.
