Do you think you may have hearing loss?
Hearing loss is common especially in aging, as over half of people in the US over the age of 65 report some degree of hearing difficulty. Signs of hearing loss include difficulty in conversations in the presence of background noise, trouble hearing on the phone, asking people to repeat themselves, and turning up the volume on the television. Hearing loss may also lead to withdrawal from social settings and interactions with loved ones. If you or a loved one are concerned about hearing difficulties, then contact the audiology clinic to schedule an audiological evaluation.
If you would like to make an appointment, contact one of our clinics. If you are experiencing a sudden change in hearing, contact a medical professional immediately.
Pediatric services can be found on the C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital site.
