Hearing loss it the third most common health problem in the United States. If left untreated, hearing loss can affect your ability to understand speech, harm your social and emotional well-being, as well as decrease your quality of life.

What causes hearing loss?

Hearing loss can occur due to a variety of factors:
  • Long-term exposure to noise
  • Illness
  • Medicine
  • Family history of hearing loss
  • Aging
  • Injury
  • Cerumen (ear wax)

Is a hearing evaluation right for me?

If you answer “Yes” to any of these questions, you may be experiencing signs of hearing loss. Schedule a consultation
  • Do you have difficulty following conversations in noisy or crowded environments?
  • Have you found yourself frequently asking others to repeat themselves?
  • Have you been told that you speak too loudly when speaking?
  • Have you experienced pain or ringing sensations in one or both of your ears?


Are there any tests that I have to undergo prior to my evaluation?
Depends. When you contact our office, our staff will walk you through the necessary steps to take prior to your evaluation. However, oftentimes, patients are asked to undergo cerumen (ear wax) removal prior to testing to ensure that it is not impacting test results.
