Dear valued patient,

Welcome to our new monthly newsletter! Each month, we’ll update you on the latest audiological news and office developments.

Of course, we couldn’t just begin a newsletter at the end of one of the most unusual years ever and not acknowledge it!

2020 will be certainly be remembered as a chaotic year, even though there were still positive moments to embrace.

What Has Kept Us Smiling:

Firstthe spring state-wide lockdown meant that many nonessential businesses had to close their doors temporarily as a measure to slow down the spread of the virus.

However, we kept our business open to service our patients who required urgent and/or essential medical care for hearing and balance problems. Local hospitals, doctors, and patients repeatedly thanked us for being one of the few practices in Los Angeles to stay open to help them in their time of need.

Second, many amazing cafés, restaurants, and independent businesses throughout Los Angeles were closed during lockdown, and we had to get by without them.

While this was sad to see, it made us appreciate how important these places are to our livelihoods – and we have found a new sense of community spirit as we aim to support their future success.

Finally, for many people, the introduction of face masks made them aware of their undiagnosed hearing loss, as communicating without lip reading proved challenging.  

This revelation resulted in our team, helping more people than ever to find hearing care and positive solutions.

It’s been a pleasure to care for all of our patients this year. Everyone at Pacific Hearing & Balance, Inc. wishes you a happy holiday season and an amazing 2021!

 

Updates from the Office

Just to let you know, the office will be closed on December 24, 25, and January 1st over the holiday period. Please let us know as soon as possible if you need an appointment near these dates.

 

Struggling for a Holiday Gift?

The most important part of the holiday season is spending time with loved ones. But exchanging gifts is also lots of fun! We have several gift options available for your family members and friends who have a hearing loss.

For example, a TV streamer will play the TV’s audio directly into your loved one’s hearing aids. This means they can hear the TV at a comfortable level, while other family members can listen to the TV at a volume that is suitable for them.

If you’d like to learn more about this item and find out more about our other gift options, then simply call our office. Our team can offer you expert advice!

 

Everyone at Pacific Hearing, Inc. loves playing games over the holidays (who doesn’t?!). So, with this in mind, we’ve prepared a series of riddles for you to try and guess!

A) What is always in front of you but can’t be seen?

B) What goes up and down but doesn’t move?

C) What has hands but can’t clap?

Think you know the answers? Hit “reply” on this email and send us your guesses!
