I can't say enough good thing about Dr. Patty Kalmbach and her whole entire office. I'm only 28 years old with no known history of hearing damage, ear infections or anything. Perfectly normal hearing wise. My hearing was astute until about 4 months ago. About 4 months ago, I pretty much woke up with a loud ringing in both my ears. It took me weeks between regular PCP office visits, ENT's, dentists, hearing specialists, MRI's, CT scans, hearing tests, blood work and to no end did I find a reason why I have the ringing other than simple minor hearing loss with LOUD ringing. I was told by almost everyone that it's something you have to live with. YOU DO NOT. I woke up to ringing one day with no known cause. I also have researched it looking for any relief. Noise machines work in the immediate but once the white noise is gone (if you're lucky enough for the ringing to be masked) the ringing comes right back more noticeable. No one talks about this like they should. 1 out of 5 people generally suffer from some degree of tinnitus. Some people they aren't bothered by it and some people are driven crazy by it. I couldn't sleep, I was depressed, was barely able to work or even enjoy a single moment of relaxation. Dr. Patty set me up with Widex brand hearing aids with a Zen program. Plays a light piano/wind-chime noise that gives pretty much immediate relief. In the long term, it's supposed to train my brain into not being bothered by it so much. THE FIRST DAY I fell in love with these hearing aids. My hearing isn't so bad where I need the amplification but it certainly helps even without the Zen program. (By the way, they very small hearing aids and I can listen to music and stream any audio from my phone, computer or TV that has a Bluetooth connection.) YOU DO NOT NEED TO SUFFER. I'm a young guy who is healthy otherwise and this came out of no where. There are other options for tinnitus that Dr. Patty Kalmbach has to offer but this works for me and I love it. If insurance is an issue, they take Care Credit as well and most people are approved within 5 minutes. Seriously. Dr. Patty Kalmbach saved my life which is a strong but accurate statement. Helpful?

I started the process of working with Colorado Tinnitus and Hearing a year ago and have had an AMAZING experience with their treatment. I was overwhelmed by tinnitus and could not sleep or function because of the noise. I started the procedure using the Haven protocol and am happy to say that it was a success. Follow the instructions, do your homework and it really works. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and caring and will work with you throughout your treatment.

Francine you were an absolute joy to work with. Tinnitus treatment requires that the patient be engaged and is compliant to our recommendations. You were motivated to get better and followed every instruction to the tee. Thank you for trusting us with your care and letting us help you with your tinnitus. I strongly believe that people can regain the joy in their life after going through tinnitus treatment. You are a bright example of not letting tinnitus ruin your life!

A breath of fresh air! Imagine: a business where you are welcome, respected, serviced graciously and professionally by competent people .. even if you're not family or wearing a 5 karat diamond ring. It's easy these days to forget that such businesses -- which, in my opinion, should be the norm ... if only because such an approach is invaluable in order for a business to grow and become successful -- still exist. They're so few and far between. So ... here's my story: I couldn't figure out why my 93-year-old father's hearing aid wasn't working. He kept buying new batteries -- by the boatload! I examined the device, and all I could think of was that the battery wasn't making a good connection. I was with my father and we happened to be in the Porter's Hospital vicinity and saw the sign for Colorado Tinnitus and Hearing Center. I thought, "Since we're right here, I might as well go in", but I wasn't looking forward to it. It gets tiresome to always be greeting by persons who are as much as saying, "Why are you bothering me?" Like the wizard of Oz tells Dorothy, "Come back in ten years". I walked in and was greeted by Morgan, who was the office manager. She was sitting at a reception desk, so I naturally assumed that she was the receptionist. I was all ready for her to say something like, "Our knowledgeable person is out of the office right now. Could you come back in ten years?" Anyway ... nothing could be further than the truth. On the contrary, she took my father's hearing aid, and without my having to go through the labor of trying to get her interested enough in my case so as to not tell me to come back in 10 years, she examined it, showed me exactly what was wrong with it, proceeded to go fix it, gave it back to me ... all in the space of about 10 minutes. And it wasn't that easy a task, either. She had to wrestle with the hearing aid, twist it, cajole it, cut it, glue it, and clean it. She was cheerful, interested, knowledgeable, and energetic. Like I said ... a breath of fresh air; a rare find. Don't go anywhere else for this kind of work. You don't need to.

Thanks Michael. We take customer service very seriously and want every patient to feel like family. I am so glad Morgan was able to help you and fix your Father's hearing aid. Let us know if we can help in any way down the road.

They have changed my dad's life. He no longer has to wrestle with tinnitus everyday thanks to CT&H. Dr. Lisa was very thorough in her explanation of the treatment and made sure my dad knew what to expect going forward. She has a personal touch that made us both feel at ease. I left feeling very confident that she viewed my dad's hearing problem as her own and she intended to solve it. The receptionist Morgan is both knowledgeable and super helpful. I had to bring my two small children with me and she made sure they felt welcome. I've received reminder phone calls for every appointment and they were very flexible when it came to scheduling. I love these people for what they have given my dad, he now listens to his TV at 1/4 the volume that he did before. I will recommend them to anybody I know with a hearing problem for the rest of my life.

Olga it was a joy to work with your Father. Life is too precious to miss what your Grandchildren are sharing with you. So glad your Dad can now enjoy hearing the special things in life including his family!

Morgan, Office Manager and Audiology Assistant, met me on a Sunday since i live 2 hours away and fixed my hearing aid on HER time off. She certainly didn't need to do that for me. It was not in her job description. It was her kindness! Dr. Patty and Dr. Lisa are awesome in assisting me in diagnosing my hearing loss and making the appropriate recommendation to correct my hearing loss and working on my tinnitus at the same time. They have always worked around my schedule since I don't get to Denver very often. The office atmosphere is wonderful. You get to watch fish on a digital aquarium which is so relaxing and fascinating. Delicious coffee and cookies as well! They could never have been nicer or kinder to me in any way. Not only would I recommend others to see these awesome people, I have previously referred others to them.

Pat thank you so much for taking the time to review our office. We strive to treat patient's like they are family. That is exactly how we feel about have become a beloved family member. We are always here to help if you need us. Go Bronco's!!!!!

I love Colorado Tinnitus and Hearing Center. What a wonderful, clean, and relaxing atmosphere. I had to call here to about my father because I thought he need hearing aids.. Turns out it was selective. LOL. We received honest and competent advise. From my first phone contact I was more than satisfied with the service we received. Please contact them.

Thanks Jolene for bringing your Dad in to see us. We appreciate your trust in us and allowing us to take care of your Dad.

I can't speak highly enough of this place. I came in for a consult about misophonia and tinnitus. I was given several treatment options and opted for tinnitus-relief hearing aids. I was treated like an equal by everyone on staff, I was given honest and straightforward information, and I was seen within a reasonable time frame despite their full schedules. I've been using the hearing aids for a few weeks now and it's already life-changing. For what it's worth, my insurance doesn't cover hearing, but I was told that many of their misophonia patients have at least some luck with getting insurance to pay for the work.

Reply from company

Thanks Chris for you kind review. We are passionate about treating those patient's who suffer from Misophonia. The hearing devices you are wearing can often be a game changer in allowing an individual to be able to eat with their family, go to school, or work.

For me, this was a life saving experience. I had given up hope of any relief from the never ending screaming in my head. I found the office to be professional, and the staff to be compassionate. Dr. Kalmbach clearly laid out what to expect during the diagnosis & treatment, and was fully supportive of my situation. My condition was severe--I was on the edge of going insane--and therapy for any condition is never a quick fix. The final result was that I got my life back. The tinnitus became a non-issue, and I cannot speak highly enough of how I was taken care of by Dr. Kalmbach and the entire staff.

Reply from company

Ken it is always heart warming for me to see patient's at the beginning or treatment and then at the end of treatment. You truly get to see a life changed for the good. I always tell my patient's that no one wants to have tinnitus, but I also promise they will not be the same person when they finish treatment. People, through treatment, learn to take better care of themselves and listen to their bodies. You were so committed to the process and were all in from the very beginning. It is a joy to work with a patient who is focused on getting better and is compliant with treatment protocols. Wishing you only the go out and enjoy your life!

I can't say enough about CTHC. Their staff are some of the finest individuals I have experienced in a customer service environment. The service is the acme of the industry and I would return anytime. The expertise is cutting edge and definitely top tier.

Tinnitus was destroying my life. I had lost a job and my career as a musician was agony. Dr. Patty and Dr. Lisa have worked with me for four years and my tinnitus is under control. I am leading a normal busy life. I know how to deal with the issues tinnitus creates. Without Dr. Lisa and Dr. Patty, Morgan and Neuromonics I don't know if I would still be here. They were always there for me. Tinnitus can create a very stressful environment, there is no cure, it is easy to become frustrated with your Doctor's. I am sure at times I was a challenge. They were always caring and professional.

Reply from company

Harry thanks for the kind review. Tinnitus can be very debilitating for some people. Literally, tinnitus can change your life. We believe very strongly that your life does not have to be ruined by tinnitus. You are very special to us and have become like family to us. Stop by and say hi sometime and have a cookie!

Colorado Tinnitus is the best medical center for any problem that I have ever known. I have had a long life of medical problems and I have never received the quality of care that I received from Dr. Patty Kalmbach at CTHC. I came in here a year ago with a horrible hearing problem: tinnitus and Hyperacusis. After help and new hearing aids, I am cured. I have nothing but the highest praise for Dr. Patty and the entire CTHC team.

Thanks Chris we are so happy we could help. Thanks for trusting us with your hearing needs. We love getting to see people get their life back again.

I can't believe how much better I am doing now and I am only in Stage 1 of treatment.""I have my life back and I can do what I want to do and I don't take any medications for sleeping anymore.

By Linda W.

After waking up from surgery and after the painkillers had worn off, I found myself experiencing a raging case of tinnitus. I had never experienced anything like this. My ears rang constantly and extremely loudly. I could not rest or relax and sleeping required sleeping pills. Concentration was impossible. My G. P. the surgeon, and even other ear clinics said there was nothing they could do. (It would probably go away, they said). My friends and family were watching the desperation in me grow and I was experiencing panic. Waiting for this to simply "go away" did not seem like an option to me. I worried that I would not be able to concentrate enough to do my job. Colorado Tinnitus and Hearing Center was running public service announcements on a radio station that a friend happened to be listening to and suggested I call. The response I received from them felt like a lifeline. They made time in a busy schedule to see me immediately and spent time, long over the standard office call allotment, to begin the process of education it takes to heal tinnitus. Their understanding of and compassion for the human experience is as important as the clinical knowledge of it. There really is hope for treatment but it requires cooperation and commitment of the patient. They help you understand what is going on physically with your ears and your brain and then support you in what you must do to help the treatment work. It has been a year since this journey began. I spend most of the day unaware of my ears. At times they still ring but it is totally under control and at a level I can live with or ignore. Most of all I am not panicked about having tinnitus. I do not think I would be saying this without the help of the Colorado Tinnitus and Hearing Center and I emphatically want to pass on hope and support for any person with tinnitus. Only someone who has experience it knows how devastating it is. For me there was help and I feel fortunate to have found this compassionate group of people to assist me in healing.
