Have you had your vision checked lately? A yearly physical? Now what about your hearing? Just like many aspects of your health, it is a great idea to have a baseline hearing screening to make sure you are hearing what you need to. Gardner Audiology in Palm Harbor, Florida performs free hearing screenings by a doctor of Audiology.
A common misconception is hearing loss only occurs in the elderly. However, 1 in 5 Americans over the age of 12 have hearing loss. This is why it is a great idea to have a screening in early adulthood, and then more regular as you get older. Children typically have their hearing screened at their pediatrician’s office or in school.
A hearing screening helps determine if you are hearing within the normal range. If you pass your screening, that’s great! It means you are hearing within the expected range and we can continue to monitor for changes over time. If you refer, a full diagnostic evaluation may be recommended to get a complete picture of your ears and hearing.
Early identification of hearing loss is important! Untreated hearing loss has higher risks of dementia, falls, social isolation and depression. Want to set up an appointment for a hearing screening in Palm Harbor, Florida? Contact Gardner Audiology at 1-800-277-1182 or email@example.com
