Hey there,

Would you believe July has made its way around to us again?

With all the apparent differences from this year to last, one of the biggest is that festivals and events aren’t happening. For the team here in Phoenix, there’s a lot of mixed feelings…

But for the sake of focusing on one, let’s stick to how we feel about it in relation to our ears.

See, there’s a massive correlation between a person’s deterioration in hearing and their consistent exposure to loud noise.

So, it’s no wonder that news broke recently about Huey Lewis and the News frontman, Huey Lewis’s recent struggle with Meniere’s disease, a debilitating condition that gives the patient vertigo, tinnitus, and hearing loss symptoms.

Huey spent his career in front of loudspeakers and crowds of adoring, screaming fans, so you quickly understand why he might have suffered from hearing loss and consequently, Meniere’s.

But all is not lost, as Huey did the right thing and sought out professional treatment, which—if you’re a Huey fan—you’ll be glad to know has enabled him to see a light at the end of the tunnel! (You can read the full article here.)

So, whether you’re struggling with hearing loss symptoms, or you have a nose or throat-related problem, don’t sit in silence, “do a Huey!” and let us know about it.

This Might Interest You

Continuing the Huey theme, and in the spirit of helping you stay aware, it seems only right to point out how important your contribution might be to others’ hearing.

Hearing loss affects us all in different ways, but one thing that remains consistent is how much better it is to manage a condition when you know the facts.

Hearing loss is unfortunately on the rise in America. Many of our nation’s youth are being badly affected, which means raising awareness about good hearing health practices is crucial.

The words of someone who’s experienced hearing loss and received the right treatment can make a huge difference to someone with concerns, however.
A hearing test is all it takes to begin a journey to better hearing. If you or someone else close to you has concerns, contact the team at Scottsdale ENT. They are ready to assist you today!

Oh, and don’t forget our new in-person appointment protocols!
