Recommended Posts

Husband been wearing aids for years. His loss has been described as severe.  Most due to construction work throughout his lifetime.  They aids seem very effective.  He struggles with conversation and tinnitus.  He is becoming isolated.  Anyone have similar experience?  I am wondering if it is time for a consult with CI specialist.  Any suggestions for providers on east coast?

I recommend going for an evaluation at a large CI center.

East coast is quite a wide range.  Would you like to narrow it down a bit?

I go to New York Eye and Ear of Mount Sinai in NYC.  It’s a fabulous CI center.

We are 2 hours from Philadelphia and appx 2.5 from midtown nyc...would also consider Hopkins or pittsburgh...forgot to add he has an acoustic neuroma that has been stable appx 20 years.

You are a lot closer to NYC than I am.  I drive 5 hours each way to go to NYEE of Mt Sinai. Wishing your husband the best.

I was implanted in 2015.  At that time the protocol at NYEE was

-activation 

-1 week later

-1 month later

-1 month later

-1 month later

-3 months later

-6 months later

 

This may have changed.
