    Testimonials

    • I have had hearing aids for many years and they are a must for my connection to the world around me. Dr. Fevold fine tunes my hearing aids as needed. The professionalism of Dr. Fevold and the office staff is unsurpassed.

      Jerry Billingsley, Wenatchee, WA
    • The use of hearing aids has benefitted me as well as my family so much as now i can hear my grandchildren's stories, my wife's directions and even the TV! My daily life has changed significantly. I have recommended Horan & Fevold Hearing Clinic to many friends and relatives over the past years. Walt Horan, my audiologist has been a wonderful friend and is always there to help me with my hearing aids. He is always available to listen to me and help me in anyway he Can: he has spent quality time and care with my situation. The valuable aspect of my experience with Walt and his staff is that they are always friendly and ready to help in anyway they can. This clinic is #1 in my book!

      Roger Pollock, Wenatchee, WA
    • The new state-of-the-art hearing aids have come along way in making them "user friendly." My latest pair have no "whistling" annoyance which I really appreciate. I highly recommend the Phonak Audeo S Smart hearing aid to people so they can keep up with others in hearing what they say

      Earl Pickering, East Wenatchee, WA
    • I have worn hearing aids for 30 years. I recently chose the new Lyric extended wear devices that are in the canal. I felt Justin Fevold was very interested in helping me choose the hearing aid that was right for me. I am starting my fifth month with the Lyric hearing aids and I could not be happier. I wish everyone with a hearing loss could experience what I have.

      Flora Lancaster, Orondo, WA
    • Even though I had been wearing hearing aids for some time, I found myself constantly turning up the TV, missing out on family conversations, hearing strange sermons, and making weird comments to what I though I heard. My husband's ribs were sore from me poking and asking "What'd they say?" So I went to see Dr. Walt Horan. He gave me a hearing test and found my hearing had changed drastically over the years. He fit me with digital hearing aids that were so small and light I hardly knew I had them on. He said to wear them for a while (with no obligation) and see if they made a difference. Absolutely amazing! It was a whole new world of hearing for me

      Doris Rodin, East Wenatchee, WA
    • I was having more and more trouble hearing conversations, especially in noisy environments like parties or riding in vehicles. I had to ask both family and friends to repeat their comments to me many times. I went in for a hearing test and met Justin Fevold. He was pleasant and caring and calmed my anxiety about the test. After telling me about the extent of my hearing loss, Dr. Fevold suggested hearing aids. I have worn my aids for about 14 months and adapted to them quickly. Dr. Fevold has made my visits to Horan Fevold Hearing Clinic pleasant experiences.

    Patient Resources

    How You Hear

    Hearing begins when the outer ear, the visible portion of the ear that is on the outside of the head, channels sound waves down the auditory canal. This tube-like passageway is lined with tiny hairs and small glands that produce ear wax.

    The middle ear lies at the end of the auditory canal. It is composed of the eardrum and three small bones, known by the layman as the hammer, the anvil and the stirrup. When sound waves hit the eardrum, it vibrates and, in turn, moves the hammer. The hammer moves the anvil, which moves the stirrup, transmitting the vibrations into the inner ear. The middle ear functions to amplify sound, which is why significant hearing loss can result from any disruption in any of the parts.

    The inner ear consists of the cochlea and the nerve of hearing. It converts sound waves into nerve impulses that travel to the brain via the movement of tiny hair cells. The brain, in turn, allows us to hear…as long as the message it is receiving is not distorted due to problems in the process just described.

    Hearing Loss

    Many people suffer from hearing loss…

    In fact, the latest available statistics show that over 10% of the U.S. population reports difficulty hearing! That’s more than 31 million people! And as the Baby Boomer generation continues to age, that number promises to increase dramatically!

    Are you one of those millions of people who does not hear as well as they once did? If so, you are certainly not alone. Consider these statistics reported by Sergei Kochkin, Ph.D., Executive Director of the Better Hearing Institute :

    • 3 in 10 people over age 60 have hearing loss;
    • 1 in 6 baby boomers (ages 41-59), or 14.6%, have a hearing problem;
    • 1 in 14 Generation Xers (ages 29-40), or 7.4%, already have hearing loss;
    • At least 1.4 million children (18 or younger) have hearing problems;
    • It is estimated that 3 in 1,000 infants are born with serious to profound hearing loss.

    In addition, studies have linked untreated hearing loss to emotional, physical, mental, psychological and even economic disadvantages! And, to make matters even worse, there are many “myths” about hearing loss that prevent those with hearing loss from doing anything about it.

    Causes of Hearing Loss

    One of the most common “myths” about hearing loss is that only “old people” suffer from it! In fact, the reverse is true! The majority (65%) of people with hearing loss are younger than 65 and six million people in the U.S. between 18 and 44 suffer from hearing loss (Better Hearing Institute website).

    The truth is that there are several causes of hearing loss with “exposure to noise” ranking high among the reasons. The primary causes of hearing loss are:

    • Exposure to noise
    • Family history of hearing loss
    • Medicine
    • Aging process
    • Disease
    • Head trauma

    Types of Hearing Loss

    Not all hearing loss can be corrected through the use of hearing aids or alternative listening devices. The type of hearing loss determines the specific treatment required.

    There are four types of hearing loss:

    • Conductive: This could be caused by something as simple as earwax buildup!
    • Sensorineural: This is caused when tiny hairs in the cochlea are missing or damaged.
    • Mixed: This is a combination of conductive and sensorineural hearing loss.
    • Central: Strokes and central nerve diseases are often the cause of this type of hearing loss.
