Hearing Loss Impacts Your Bottom Line

More than 20 million Americans in the workforce have untreated hearing loss. When employees have trouble following conversations or misunderstand what is being said, it can negatively impact their productivity and lead to costly mistakes or accidents.

hearing loss costlyIn addition, people with untreated hearing loss:

  • Have difficulty learning new tasks
  • Experience more fatigue and distress
  • Are often more negative, angry and irritable
  • Withdraw from social situations
  • Are more prone to injuries and hospitalization
  • Are at increased risk of developing dementia, depression and anxiety.

These effects can lead to an increase in sick days and health insurance claims, costing your company thousands of dollars in payouts, premiums and lost productivity.

The Enhanced Hearing Benefits Program helps your employees get the professional assistance they need to resolve their hearing difficulties and reduce or eliminate the negative impacts of hearing loss.

The program can help improve productivity, reduce costly mistakes and accidents, and diminish the number of insurance claims, all while boosting employee loyalty and quality of life.

Dr Anzola is outstanding. Dr Anzola has provided me with hearing aids that have improved my hearing dramatically. She does an outstanding job of adjusting them each time I see her. Her staff will always fit me in if I need some help. My hearing aids have made such an improvement in the quality of my life. I am most grateful to Dr Anzola.

- Linda B., Annandale, VA

Great Service with Outstanding Results. Lost my previous hearing aids so went to Dr Ana Anzola for help in getting new ones. Thanks to her I have new hearing aids which are extraordinarily better than anything I had before. She takes time to analyze your hearing loss and then creates the best solution tailored to your needs. I woukld recommend her to anyone who suffers from hearing loss problems.

- Thomas A., Mc Lean, VA

A five-star experience! I am a first-time hearing-aid user. I did not know what to expect but Dr. Anzola immediately put me at ease, explained the process and educated me on available options. I have been impressed with the follow-up services. The doctors and staff are friendly, efficient and professional. I have recommended Ascent to others.

- Kathleen S., Herndon, VA

A+++++ (that's 5) for service, professionalism, expertise, etc. I went to the office not really knowing what to expect. Marci Smith was the Audiologist and she is very personable and professional. I am almost please enough to travel to Rockville, her normal office. Everything about the people and office are really the best.

- Richard L., Falls Church, VA

All 5 stars! I purchased my Starkey hearing aids in Naples Florida where we spend part of the year. Audiology Associates located in Naples found Ascent in a directory. With the office close to where we live, I have come in twice to purchase supplies. Service was professional, courteous, and prompt. I will be back for continued purchases as well as service on my hearing aids if necessary.

- Richard S., Oakton, VA

Service is very good and quick. After service my hearing aid is in good condition. I satisfy. Thanks.

- Thuy D., Rockville, MD

Excelent practice. Dr Anzola is an excellent professional. I'm very happy with her professional practice and office. Before I went there, I visited many doctors and they never solved my problem. With Dr. Anzola my experience has been very good.

- Ana B., Bethesda, MD

Excellent! Highly recommend. I accompanied my mother for her initial exam and again when she received the hearing aids. I was very impressed with the amount of time spent and the attention to detail. My mother is not an easy customer and for her to be impressed also says volumes. Dr. Anzola listened well and carefully and responded to all questions and concerns. I was invited to sit in as the aids were prepared and how to use and care for them was explained. She took A LOT of time going over everything, answering questions, and explaining everything in detail. We never felt hurried or rushed. Our appointment was on a Friday late afternoon. What totally amazed us was on Saturday morning my mother got a call from Dr. Anzola. She wanted to see how my mother did after the appointment and in the morning. She asked my mother if she had any questions or concerns. A follow up from the doctor WITHOUT a call from us, was a pleasant surprise. I would highly recommend her.

- Dale L., Alexandria, VA

Dr. Anzola is very attentive, listens very carefully to what ou have to say, will answer all guestions and will change whatever that can be changed to accommidate your wishes. If you have a problem Dr. Anzola will squeeze you in as soon as possible.

- Mary M., Falls Church, VA

Overall - Excellent. Office is officially run and staff (Christine) always accommodating. Appointments are timely, so next to no waiting time. Very friendly but efficient and professional environment. Small waiting room but comfortable setting. Earing devices and testing process seem to meet excellent standards...Doctor Anzola appears very technically knowledgeable and competent.

- Linda G., Fairfax, VA

I Can Hear!!! Dr. Anzola and her staff have been unbelievably fabulous with me. They worked with me to make sure that I got the help I needed and got the comfort that I wanted. They've been there every time I've needed advice or help. And yes, I've already been recommending them to friends. Think you can't hear? Go get help - After 10 years, I'm hearing the birds again... I had no idea how much I'd lost and I'm so happy to have it back again!

- Sheldon C., Arlington, VA

They have gone out of their way to help me hear better. Many times I have called or gone to their office to correct a problem or answer a question.

– Lynda R., McLean, VA

Excellent service! Dr. Anzola is totally professional, helpful and experienced - it is a pleasure to use her services.

- Jane F., Mclean, VA

Dr. Anzola taught me how to use my hearing aid. Improving your hearing is more than purchasing an aid. I am very pleased with my choice to get assistance from Ascent Audiology for my hearing needs. Dr. Anzola is a teacher as well as a doctor. I highly recommend her practice.

- Carol B., Falls Church, VA

Great service, good listeners! My hearing aids are very comfortable. I've been wearing them now since Jan. 2013. Dr. Anzola is responsive to my questions and gives great customer service! Christina is so helpful and her calls to remind me of my next appointment are much appreciated. Thank you Dr. Anzola and staff.

- Craig R., Arlington, VA

Caring, professional audiologist Dr. Anzula guided me through the difficult transition of adjusting to wearing hearing aids. She made sure I had devices to fit mt needs and took the time and care to make sure I was satisfied.
