Hearing loss is the third most common health problem in the U.S. — impacting about 48 million Americans.
Everyone loses some hearing as a natural result of the aging process but hearing loss can also be caused by a number of issues. Anything from obstructions like ear wax or fluid from an ear infection to more serious conditions like tumors, autoimmune disorders and diabetes can all cause hearing loss. Continued exposure to loud noises and some medications can also cause a loss of hearing.
We recommend that you see a doctor as soon as you have trouble hearing. The sooner you get diagnosis and treatment the more you can be involved in the world around you. We have experienced Otolaryngologists and Audiologists on staff to diagnose and treat hearing disorders.
