Hear for the Holidays
Utah Valley Hearing and Balance is giving the gift to ‘Hear for the Holidays’ to one lucky outstanding citizen this holiday season. This gift includes one set of hearing aids, counseling for the hearing impaired and a comprehensive hearing evaluation. This gift to ‘Hear for the Holidays’ will go to a citizen that gives to others before themselves. ‘Hear for the Holidays’ giveaway started because Dr. Bird of Utah Valley Hearing & Balance has seen many of his patients that are in need of hearing aids but put it off because they keep putting the needs of others first.
Dr. Bird has been in practice since 2012. He graduated from BYU then went onto audiology school in Louisville, Kentucky. Dr. Bird mainly works with patients who have hearing loss, vertigo, ringing in ears and need ear wax removal; but loves when he can help someone with unusual problems as well. He recently had a patient with sudden hearing loss. Dr. Bird was able to diagnose the problem quickly and instead of the patient losing his hearing completely, he was able to get his hearing back.
Dr. Bird chose to set up his practice in Springville because of the great citizens he would be able to work with. Helping his patients is Dr. Bird’s favorite part of his day. “I mostly work with the very young or seniors in my business. I love working with seniors most because they are very refined and kind people. They have a lot of character with very strong values and morals.” It is that character and strong values he hopes to pass along to his two daughters. His spare time is spent with his family riding bikes at the park and playing in the hammock in the back yard. “It is the small things that make my life great. Every day is a fun day at the Bird house,” says Dr. Bird.
The small and selfless acts that Dr. Bird sees his patients do, prompted him to give back to his community. Please help Dr. Bird give the gift to ‘Hear for the Holidays’ this year an outstanding citizen. Visit www.UtahValleyHearingandBalance.com or stop by his office at 380 East 400 South, Springville to nominate someone in the community in need of hearing aids. Submissions are due December 12th and winners will be announced December 17th. Nominate a parent, grandparent, neighbor or friend who is in need and tell Dr. Bird how they give of themselves and serve others first.
