Are you or a loved one constantly turning up the television volume? Do you have difficulty hearing in restaurants or large groups? You aren’t alone. As many as one in six adults in the United States suffers from hearing loss. But there is good news: help is available at Coffey County Hospital. Doctor of Audiology Jessica Whalen offers monthly appointments at Coffey County Hospital Specialty Clinic.

The March 2 presentation begins at noon in Coffey County Hospital’s Allen Woods 2 conference room. Attendance and lunch are free. Seating is limited, so register today by calling Virginia DuBuke at (620) 364-2121 Ext. 4174. Evening callers may register by voice-mail. Reservations are also taken online at www.coffeyhelath.org.

As a doctor of audiology, Whalen is dedicated to addressing hearing loss using state-of-the-art technology and the latest hearing care services. If a hearing aid is advised, Topeka Ear, Nose & Throat offers products from all six hearing aid manufacturers worldwide. Because they aren’t tied to any one brand, Topeka Ear, Nose & Throat offers the widest possible selection of styles to match each patient’s specific needs and budget. For added convenience, Whalen conducts audiological evaluations and hearing aid consultations, cleanings, and adjustments at Coffey County Hospital.

“I’ve enjoyed serving people in rural areas with Topeka ENT for the past six years and I’m looking forward to establishing more patient relationships in Coffey County,” Whalen said.

Whalen graduated with her doctorate of audiology from Wichita State University in 2009. She received her certificate with the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) in 2011 and is also certified in sign language.
