Why Everybody Should Have a Regular Hearing Assessment
The latest studies suggest that 1 in 8 of us are experiencing some form of hearing loss in the US. When you compare that number to the small percentage of people that actually get their hearing tested, you can see why I’m so passionate about raising awareness for healthy hearing.
One of the biggest challengesI’ve faced throughout my 25-year career is the length of time patients take before seeing a specialist. On average, a person waits seven years to having their hearing tested by a professional. During this period, their issue has often worsened.
This means when I finally see a patient, we often have a much larger challenge on our hands. If they’d visited us when experiencing their first signs of hearing loss, the solution would have been much simpler.
If you’re over the age of 55 or have experienced any signs of a hearing loss, my advice is to schedule a hearing assessment as soon as possible, even if it’s just as a precaution.
It’s quick, non-invasive, and you receive the results right away.

When Was The Last Time That You Had Your Hearing Tested?
Although we all regularly have our teeth checked, our cholesterol tested, and a yearly physical, hardly any of us regularly check our hearing.
Yet with approximately 30 million Americans over the age of 12 having some form of hearing loss in both ears, it’s highly encouraged to have your hearing tested.
If you are concerned about your hearing or you are concerned about a loved one’s hearing, then the first step is to have a comprehensive hearing test.
It’s quick, it’s non-invasive, and, in most cases, your insurance pays for your hearing test.
How Hearing Technology Has Progressed
Many of us have a stigma towards hearing aids as we remember the large clunky devices from yesteryear. However, the latest hearing technology has rapidly changed with many of the devices being extremely small, discreet, and, in some cases, invisible.
In fact, many patients tell us that their friends, family, and colleagues had not even noticed them.
Best of all, new technology no longer just amplifies your hearing, but it also amplifies your life with advanced connectivity to your smartphone, tablet, and television to make streaming music, sound, and phone calls seamless.
