Hearing Aids Tailored To Your Life!

Over 10,000 lives transformed
since 1996 in Silicon Valley

Hearing loss is a problem and a major inconvenience. It can make doing everyday tasks more difficult and even interfere with job performance.

A study at the University of British Columbia has found another consequence to hearing loss, however, and this one could prove to be one of the most substantial yet: social isolation.

Study participants between the ages of 60-69 had a 52 percent increase in risk of social isolation for every 10-decibel drop in hearing sensitivity. 10 decibels is approximately the volume of breathing. Additionally, a 10-decibel drop in hearing sensitivity is also correlated with the cognitive decline associated with approximately four years of aging.

Up until now, hearing loss has not been seen as a major health issue in the medical community, but this study may change that. More health care resources may now be allocated to the detection and prevention of hearing damage, especially in older adults.

We know that cognitive decline and social isolation can contribute to earlier mortality rates in the elderly, so linking hearing loss with these risk factors is alarming and will likely result in more time and resources invested in understanding and preventing hearing loss.

Very often, hearing aids can halt or slow the progress of hearing loss, which makes yearly hearing screenings more important than ever: with understanding of your level of hearing loss comes the power to change it and prevent further damage.

I've been a client of Christine Throm for over 10 years (and 3 moves... you always stay with the best). She is a VERY dedicated professional, she is knowledgeable, and caring. My hearing loss has never been managed more effectively and the she has access to the latest and most advanced technologies. She has personally selected her staff to reflect her own values and high standards. Everyone there is friendly helpful. To top it off, they are now conveniently located adjacent to the "Mission Oaks" campus of Good Sam in a suite of beautiful, "state-of-the-art" offices.She is the GREATEST! Enough said.

Dr. Christine Throm was very knowledgeable and thorough. After one visit I understood what my hearing losses are and what I could expect from hearing aids. I have visited other audiologists with poorer results. I will be returning to Los Gatos Audiology.

I’ve been a patient of Los Gatos Audiology for several years and am on my second set of hearing aids that have been prescribed here. The staff is always friendly and helpful. Dr. Christine Throm is the best. She’s always takes time to understand any aspect of my personal hearing issues to provide the best care for me. I simply wouldn’t go anywhere else.
