“I can’t hear my spouse from the other room”, “I have difficulty hearing in restaurants”, “People mumble”, “The masks are making it harder for me to hear.” Many people may be aware of these communication difficulties but will often say they hear just fine. Does any of this sound familiar to you? If so, these struggles may be indicators of a potential hearing loss. An audiological evaluation performed by an Audiologist may be the next step in allowing us to better help you.

Through effective counseling, your Audiologist will ask specific questions to better understand what your needs are day to day. This could mean wanting to hear better in noisy restaurants, being able to hear the TV, being able to hear during a conference meeting, or being able to understand your grandchildren on the phone. By having this conversation, it is helping the Audiologist to learn what it is like to walk in your shoes. Whatever your needs are, we are here to listen. It is the Audiologists’ job in explaining your hearing test results while also providing professional recommendations on helping you to hear better.

Your journey into better hearing can begin with the right motivation, education, and guidance, and can start by booking an appointment with an ENT specialist today. By trusting in us as part of your ENT Medical Team, we can accomplish your goals together.
