Caring for your hearing health is always a good idea, and October’s Audiology Awareness Month is the perfect time to do it!
Although you may think you don’t have hearing loss, the condition is common—it affects 48 million Americans—and can happen so gradually that you may not be aware of a problem until it has reached an advanced stage. Regular hearing screenings from an audiologist are invaluable for identifying any issues early.
Signs and symptoms of hearing loss include:
- Difficulty understanding others when they speak
- Asking speakers to frequently repeat what they have said
- Being unable to distinguish speech from background sounds
- Turning up the volume to levels that others find too loud
- Experiencing tinnitus
Our expert audiologists can help. They’ll evaluate and diagnose any hearing loss and develop a personalized hearing treatment plan that will provide you with strategies for effective communication to improve your quality of life.
