Personal Statment

One concern with a child who is born with hearing loss is that we learn to speak based on what we hear. The thought of living your life, or as a parent, maybe living your life without your child saying "I love you" or "I do" or some of those really important phrases is tough. This makes it really critical to identify pediatric hearing loss in a timely manner and intervene in an appropriate way.

      I have had many interactions with doctors in my 73 years, and I must say one of the best was with Dr. Matthew Bush. He did an excellent job of clearly explaining his diagnosis and patiently answering my questions. On a scale of 1-10 I would rate him a 12.
