Review for American Tinnitus Association, Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

My experience with the ATA has been a positive one.

I was diagnosed with Subjective Tinnitus in November of 2009. For the first three months, I felt completely isolated with my condition until I joined the ATA. I don’t regret one moment of that decision. Their support site has allowed me to not feel alone in my struggle to cope with the noise in my head. Whether it’s been one month or 25 years, living with Tinnitus is never easy. It challenges us in ways that others cannot imagine. “It’s maddening”, as one friend quoted. Talking with others on the ATA support site has given me hope for the future. I’m most impressed with the people who work for the ATA. They consistently have a presence on the support site with updates on meetings and the latest news on research and tinnitus treatments. The staff has also been most accommodating to me with prompt responses related to any questions or concerns. It’s comforting to know that this organization is fighting for us every day. I’m proud to be a member of the American Tinnitus Association.

If I had to make any changes to this support organization I would like to see the ATA get more celebrities to do public announcements for more awareness of Tinnitus.
