Do I need a hearing aid?

The average person waits at least seven years from the time they start noticing their hearing loss to when they seek treatment. Why is this? Many times, the person is unsure of whether or not they truly have a hearing loss, or they are not ready to admit it. Even if you are unsure, it is important to have a baseline hearing test so you have results to compare to in the future. Here are some possible signs of hearing loss:

  • Asking people to repeat themselves or feeling that many people mumble
  • Turning the TV up louder
  • Struggling to hear in background noise
  • Having a hard time following along in groups
  • Difficulty hearing someone from a distance
  • Trouble communicating on the telephone

If any of these points apply to you, it may be time to see an audiologist for a hearing evaluation. Gardner Audiology has Doctors of Audiology with the experience and expertise necessary to evaluate your hearing and provide recommendations personalized to you.
