Dr. Joan D'Alessandro, AuD, FAAA owns and operates Advanced Hearing and Balance Care in Paoli and Pottstown, PA. She dispenses hearing aids from many different manufacturers, offering hearing diagnosis, fitting and rehabilitation. Dr. D'Alessandro is a charter member of the Pennsylvania Academy of Audiology (PAA), serving as secretary for six years; she was president in 2007. To reinforce the importance of communication , Dr. D'Alessandro says she finds it helpful to get the patient's significant other to come to appointments. They're usually much more aware of the problem, she describes. I ask the significant other if they are acting as a hearing aid, she says, adding that the answer is usually 'yes.' Dr. D'Alessandro also finds that humor is a great way to lighten the atmosphere and inject some fun into the process of hearing rehabilitation. She says, If I can get them laughing, that's one notch down on the denial scale. She keeps cartoons with funny sayings in her offices and says that patients like them so much that they often bring in more to share with her and with other patients.
