The Bend Oregon Hearing Tech Expo

Pacific Northwest Audiology had a full house in attendance at our Hearing Tech Expo on Wednesday, Feb 8, at the Mount Bachelor Village Conference Center.

Event Collage

Dr. Li began the day with a very well received talk on age-related hearing loss (her PhD thesis at the world renowned Karolinska Institutet in Sweden). The Doctor also reviewed new scientific studies which strongly linked untreated hearing loss and dementia. 

Dr. Odgear, also from Pacific Northwest Audiology, was the second batter, and he knocked it out of the ball park with his talk on hearing trends and the future of hearing tech. 

We convened for a hot lunch buffet, which consisted of Brisket of Beef Au Jus, baked beans, potato salad and a creamy coleslaw.  According to my polling, everyone thoroughly enjoyed the buffet!

We shook things up after lunch and reconvened in an adjacent room, which we had set up for interactive tech activities, led by Dr. Muto-Coleman from Resound. By the end of the session, everyone was able to put the pieces together…the past, present, and future of hearing tech.

Our next event will be the third week of May. Call Kat for early details at 541-678-5698

Pacific Northwest Audiology Sponsors Another Hearing Aid Luncheon in Bend Oregon

Pacific Northwest Audiology had a another successful “Dine and Demo” luncheon at Gregg’s Grill in Bend Oregon on October 26, co-hosted by Unitron. 

So, what is a Dine and Demo Luncheon? Simply put, it’s an opportunity for guests to sample the latest hearing enhancement technology in a real world environment over lunch. 

Greggs GrilThis event was NOT designed to meet a sales quota. Guests learned important facts about hearing loss while sampling the advantages of new hearing technology…hearing aids that push the limits of hearing!

Dine and Demo luncheons are limited to only 14 invited guests. The event was designed to be relatively small, informative, and friendly, a learning environment that allowed each guest to evaluate new hearing solutions with no outside stresses or obligations. 

For those selected to participate in the event we tested their hearing (or used their latest hearing test of record) and then fitted them with personally customized Flex:Trial hearing aids, diagnostic instruments that can be programed to different technology levels to suit the needs of individual patients. Flex:Trial hearing aids are particularly well suited for increased sound clarity in otherwise noisy environments like a busy restaurant, so our guests were able to verify the technology claims…which they did!

The picture (below) shows Dr. Li (Pacific Northwest Audiology, bottom panels) and Felipe Ovando (Unitron, top panel) discussing new technology to alleviate hearing loss while enhancing hearing and communication. The middle two panels show Dr. Odgear and Grace Gardner (both from Pacific Northwest Audiology) answering general questions from our guests. Grace is completing her externship with Pacific Northwest Audiology prior to becoming a full-fledged Doctor of Audiology.

We were very pleased with the outcome of this event…the food was high quality, everyone had their questions answered, and all of us had a great time!

There will be one more Dine and Demo event this year: November 30. Call now if you want a seat… 541-678-5698-5698.

 

Pacific Northwest Audiology Celebrated Their Open House in Bend Oregon

The Open House was held on October 20, from 10 am – 2 pm at our new custom hearing center at the Shevlin Health and Wellness Center, located at 2205 NW Shevlin Park Rd. in Bend OR.

Collage FinalAround 70 people came to celebrate with us and to see what has already been heralded as one of the most forward thinking audiology clinics in the United States! 

Pacific Northwest Audiology designed this clinic from the ground up. In addition to diagnostic, clinical, and hearing aid services, we established The Hearing Innovations Center to demonstrate the leading edge of hearing enhancement technologies.

Energized by our new Hearing Innovations Center and staffed with Doctors of Audiology, Pacific Northwest Audiology is uniquely positioned to take advantage of the most remarkable hearing technologies of today …and tomorrow!

The Open House gave us a chance to demonstrate amazing new technology. We offered guided tours of the facility, explained our vision for tomorrow, and shared a tasty lunch.

This was a very satisfying event for everyone. In addition to our good friends, we made many new friends!

It’s a building! The exterior of the new Pacific Northwest Audiology Hearing Center is around 80 percent complete and you can easily imagine approaching the building on a lazy summer day…even though the temperature was 35 degrees in spotty rain showers when the picture was taken. Much progress has also been made on the interior, which was painted with an earthy beige color. Windows are framed, the ceiling is going in, and wiring is just about complete. 

In the figure above, panels 1 and 2 show the building from the NNE, and Panel 3 shows the location of Pacific Northwest Audiology relative to High Lakes Health Center. Panel 4 is a schematic of the interior office spaces and panels 5 and 6 show the view from the patient reception area toward the Innovation Technology Center, where we will have interactive displays and technology educational programs for our customers.

Progress continues on a fast track, and we are still planning to move our operations during the first week of April. Check back for updates…we will have a lot more to tell and show as time draws closer to our move-in date!
