“These new hearing aids are terrific. I don’t even feel them in my ears and they’re practically invisible. If you want to see someone who is really going to take care of you and follow through, go see Associated Audiologists.”

Len Dawson knows the score on hearing loss

When Len Dawson, Hall of Fame quarterback and former KMBC Channel 9 sports director, first noticed he was having problems hearing, he did what most people do – he ignored it. “I probably put up with my hearing loss for three or four years before I did anything about it,” Len admits. “I hoped the problem would get better, but it didn’t. I knew I needed to do something when I started having difficulty hearing phone conversations, understanding my wife if she was in another room, or hearing in a crowded restaurant.”

Then he followed the advice of a close friend and went to see Associated Audiologists. “I had no idea what to expect when I scheduled an appointment to have my hearing checked,” the veteran broadcaster says. Len was pleasantly surprised by his experience at Associated Audiologists. Using state-of-the-art diagnostic testing equipment, his audiologist quickly determined the source of his hearing loss and how to correct it. Now Len wears two mini open-fit digital hearing aids.

“These hearing aids are terrific,” Len says. “I don’t even feel them in my ears and they’re practically invisible. I can hear clearly and I don’t have to ask people to repeat themselves. I am much more comfortable in conversations.”

What does Len recommend for others who may be experiencing a hearing loss? “Don’t wait to do something about it. If you want to see someone who is really going to take care of you and follow through, go see Associated Audiologists.”
