Get Back in the Conversation

“Hearing loss can be isolating,” says Cristie E. Jones, AuDAudiologist at ARC Kyle Plum Creek and ARC South 1st Specialty in this recent podcast of the ARC Healthcare Minute. “It limits our ability to communicate with family, friends, and the world around us.”

Fortunately, Dr. Jones says that today’s hearing aids are better than ever. She describes how nowadays hearing aids have improved speech clarity, better connectivity, and are more discreet than ever.

Dr. Jones says, “If you think you have hearing loss, talk to an audiologist about your options, customize hearing aids to fit your needs, and get back in the conversation." If you would like to make an appointment with Dr. Jones for a hearing evaluation, do so online or by calling:
