Benke ENT Taking Appointments

By February 1, 2011 Newspaper Archives

Have you ever been with family or friends, listening to a story or laughing at a joke—only to miss the punch line because you can’t hear as well as you used to? Benke Ear, Nose & Throat Clinic wants to help you change that so you can join in the conversation like you used to.

There’s no reason you can’t if you get a little help from an assisted listening device, more commonly known as a hearing aid.

Benke ENT is holding a 3-Day Hearing Open House on February 23, 24 and 25, where you can get a free hearing screening and even try out a hearing aid free.

Dr. Ted Benke, who opened Benke ENT Clinic in October 2000, is the only medical doctor [M.D.] treating patients for hearing loss in Cleburne. He is certified by the American board of otolaryngology, specializing in diseases of the ear, nose and throat.

Hearing loss can really affect a person’s quality of life,” Benke said. “But they really shouldn’t have to suffer with feelings of isolation just because they can’t hear as well as they used to. We have many ways to help.”

During their Hearing Open House, Benke said, they’ll be demonstrating the latest hearing aid technology from Oticon, a world leader in hearing aids for over 100 years. One of the assisted listening devices you’ll get to try out at the Hearing Open House is Oticon’s Agil, the revolutionary new hearing device that helps you understand more with less effort.

The Agil is sleek and stylish in your hand, but virtually invisible behind your ear,” Benke said. “It’s amazing how something so small can change a person’s life so much by giving them their hearing back.”

“Otology [the medical specialty that focuses on the ears] is a big part of our practice,” Benke said. “As the population ages, patients face challenges to their hearing, and we are fully capable of helping those people who aren’t hearing as well as they would like.

“We believe that our job isn’t finished until our patients’ lives are improved. That’s why we will work with our patients to find the solution that best fits their hearing and budget.”

If you’re one of the 22 million Americans who suffers from hearing loss, call Benke ENT today at 817-641-3750 to schedule your free hearing screening during their 3-Day Hearing Open House and take the first step to reconnecting with family and friends again.
