Hearing loss is extremely difficult to self diagnose. Many people think having a hearing loss means everything gets quieter. In most cases, what really happens is people still hear, they just don’t hear clearly. For example: a husband may hear his wife speak, but he doesn’t quite catch what she says. – Here are a few check list items to go through when determining if a hearing test is needed. It is perfectly normal if you are still unsure, come in to one of our clinics today for a free professional hearing exam and official diagnosis by a licensed specialist.
