Posted by sfskater1958 @sfskater1958, Sep 4, 2018

I’m suppose to see a audiologist at Mayo clinic in Rochester i’m stone deaf but they want a hearing test. Does anyone know how good these audiologist are? have you been to one? are your feelings took in to consideration? i had my left operated on 40 years ago totally remade on inside i know nothing can be done i feel it’s useless to test. can any one give me answers and a direction on what to expect with these audiologist at mayo in rochester?

Thank you, @colleenyoung. 🙂 and Hello to you @engineer and @debbiefili . Welcome to the group.

The Otologist is the surgeon that specializes in hearing loss treatment. The Audiologist is the specialist that does the hearing tests and would consult with you and your wife about the results of the hearing test. The two professions reside in the same location at Mayo, Rochester. They work together with you to decipher what is best for the patients specific need. A baseline hearing test is typically done for every patient before seeing the otologist. There are so many options to improve loss of hearing. It's great that you are doing your research and being proactive in seeking healthcare. Make sure you search for a surgeon that is specialized and someone that will work to preserve the hearing your wife does have.

Please share this lovely story with your wife.- https://sharing.mayoclinic.org/2018/04/27/cochlear-implant-allows-judith-collins-to-relish-her-life-again/

I hope you have found the above information helpful.

How long has your wife been coping with her hearing loss? Does she still have some of her hearing or is it gone on both sides?

She definitely has hearing in both ears. One is better than the other. Her hearing loss has been going on for 2 – 3 years now. We both were widows for 15 – 17 years and married 6 years ago. Her hearing was reasonable good 6 years ago. @jamienolson

It's good to know she has hearing left in both ears. @sfskater1958 mentioned seeing Dr. Carlson at Mayo in Rochester- can you make an appointment there to see him? Here is the link, if you decide to do so- https://mayocl.in/2CkXLkR. Also, did you share the story I suggested for her? I think it's such a good story of a patient who was really withdrawn from things she enjoyed and how getting help improved her life. I just
