After a bike accident and concussion, college professor John T. lost a bit of his hearing in his left ear. He could still hear, but sometimes, it was difficult—particularly when there was a lot of ambient noise, like in his classroom. After a few years of asking people to repeat themselves, John decided it was time to do something about his hearing.
He chose the Temple Head & Neck Institute, John says, because he had experience with Temple Health and because he thought it was important to have the advanced resources of an academic medical center for his hearing. After an MRI confirmed that there were no underlying medical issues from his concussion, John was fitted with a pair of bilateral hearing aids. "They're so small that a lot of people don’t even notice them. Now I can hear much better. It’s made a huge difference."
