Mary Jo Schuh, Clinical Audiologist, and JHBI patient, James Otis, discuss cochlear implants on a segment of First Coast Living.

“Being hearing impaired is really frustrating, and before I got my hearing aids, that aggravation affected my business dealings and my family life. I would dread phone conversations because I couldn’t understand what was going on, and my family relationships were suffering. I don’t know how I was able to function. The first time I […]

“I have severe hearing loss in both ears and have had several surgeries trying to restore my hearing. Nothing worked until I came to Jacksonville Hearing and Balance Institute. Dr. Green is so kind and easygoing and he explained everything step-by-step. He recommended BAHAs (Bone Anchored Hearing Aids) and now I can finally hear again. […]

“When I started to lose my hearing I came to see Dr. Green. He had me tested but didn’t pressure me at all about getting hearing aids; he just said ‘you’ll know when it’s time’. I appreciated that and he was right. I tried one of those other hearing aid places thinking they’d be cheaper, […]

“I know a thing or two about hearing aids since I’ve worn them for 15 years. Fortunately, they’ve gotten smaller and better over time as my hearing has gotten worse. But there are so many choices now that it’s easy to get confused about what will work best for my particular hearing loss. Having an […]

“Hearing loss runs in my family, so I knew when I was pretty young that I would probably need hearing aids. I also knew I wanted to go to a doctor’s office to get them fitted, not just some place at the mall. I’m actually on my third set, and each pair has gotten better. […]

Beth Kinney, 64, of Cocoa, Fla., woke up one morning in October 2003 to a spinning room. She had experienced slight vertigo before when she was younger, but never anything this bad.
