It’s easy to begin and end a work day doing our best to serve as an Audiologist. That is, with most patients, it involves helping people to hear better and to communicate more effectively with others. This may often involve adjusting, cleaning, and modifying advanced digital hearing devices. However, “most importantly” in order to help people to hear it is essential for us to listen. That is, for the audiologist to listen and I mean with an intent of sincerity and genuineness to hear all that is said. We should do our best to ensure that we fully “hear” what is being asked of us.
For if we don’t, we become complacent in doing our job. More importantly, we become lesser of a means to help people who entrust so much to our care.
I am, and can certainly speak for our staff, that we will each and every day, be a listener of your needs.
