Hello, hello, hello,

Dr. Lyndon Ear here, back with another letter just for you, .

Now, I’ve got to say I’m a little excitable as I write this, as I feel a bit famous…

…well, it’s not exactly me who’s famous, more so my beloved audiology industry.

Eighties rock icon and teenage heartthrob Huey Lewis, from Huey Lewis and the News, has been speaking out about his struggles with Meniere’s disease. This rather nasty little number produces symptoms such as tinnitus, vertigo, and hearing loss.

OK, you might think that’s strange… why would Dr. Lyndon Ear be happy about this?

Well, I’m happy because, through treatment, heartthrob Huey has managed to come out the other side and is actually on the verge of releasing another record.

It just goes to show that irrespective of your condition, with proper help and management, an audiologist can really help you out.

So, don’t sit in silence – grab your leather jacket and “do a Huey” by allowing us to treat your problems.

Also, Knox County Board of Health has said facemasks are now mandatory indoors for anyone over 12, where six feet of separation can’t be established.

Physicians Hearing Care has implemented this at all the centers. So you’ll find every employee and provider adhering to these rules regardless of their location.

There are exemptions, and the team would be more than happy to discuss these with you. But clear signs will be in place, letting you know of the protocols when you arrive!

Should you wish to make an appointment, we would really be delighted to see you. Call us at (865) 693-6065 or click here to schedule a Virtual Appointment.

And in Other News…

It’s a sad fact that 1 in 3 Americans will suffer hearing loss at some point in their lives. But, sadder still, it appears much younger people are now experiencing symptoms, which is a massive problem.

The trouble is, unlike dental care – or even hair care, in some cases – hearing healthcare isn’t high on the agenda, and many people either suffer symptoms in silence or consciously choose not to get treatment. 

That’s why if you’re someone who has already received treatment, you are so important! Sure, it’s amazing when heartthrob Huey speaks out…

But do you know what really makes a difference for someone who’s concerned? A quiet chat with someone who can speak about hearing care from experience.

A hearing test is the best way to start a journey to better hearing. Contact the office if you or someone else has a worry, and the team will be happy to offer assistance.
