For now, I’m here to share about Nola Aronson’s Advanced Audiology employees springing into action to help a patient above and beyond his hearing. We do get patients here of all ages, with our main audience being the senior crowd. Without mentioning any names, we had a 97 year old man who suddenly felt dizzy and lost his balance in our lobby, he looked pale and nearly fell over. His wife advised Carolina, our office manager that they had just come from the cardiologist. Without any doubt, question or panic Carolina dialed 911 and we sat him down to let him sip water while we waited. Less than 15 minutes passed by and we had a lobby full of firemen & paramedics. The gentleman who had taken ill was a retired CHP who commented that he hated to be “the one causing all the trouble.” It reminded me that the reason he is our patient probably has nothing to do with old age, but due to the career he chose exposing him to gunshots and other loud noises. I started thinking about how our firemen, police officers and paramedics are out there trying to keep us safe while they hear sirens all day. I hope they’re wearing earplugs whenever possible, even the inexpensive kind from the pharmacy are better than nothing. If you are looking for serious protection, we offer custom ear plugs that allow only a certain level of noise in to help protect your ears from future damage.
Back to the story now, he of course refused to be transported to the hospital so we insisted to at least drive him, his wife and his car home. At Nola Aronson’s Advanced Audiology we treat you like family, so much so, that sometimes we might insist on driving you home. If your career path is leading you through a noisy environment please call 661-253-EARS (3277) and let’s see if we can get you in here for a free screening.
