Our services allow us to evaluate the outer ear, middle ear, inner ear, and the auditory nerve. If hearing loss is present, we will recommend the appropriate course of action for each individual.
Those that have hearing loss can do everything except hear. Hearing aids or amplification allows for clearer speech or improved audibility. As a result, the communication experience is generally improved significantly in most listening situations leading to improved quality of life.
The effects of avoiding or delaying treatment of hearing loss can lead to depression, anger, fatigue, stress, depression, social avoidance, and social rejection. The psychological results of hearing loss can also effect overall heath and cognitive ability. For young individuals, hearing loss impacts interpersonal social skills, establishing friendships, pronunciation of speech, and learning in the classroom. For those in the workforce, hearing loss can effect job advancement and income. Regardless of age, hearing loss can affect the relationship of marriage, family, and friends.
Fortunately amplification devices have advanced significantly with time and many of the effects of hearing loss are reduced or eliminated altogether. Sign language also offers an opportunity to live a full and happy life rich in communication.
