Preventive Hearing Health

Hear the important things in life; get regular hearing screenings.

Are you hearing everything you should?
Hearing loss is a common consequence of aging, though many adults don’t recognize its early stages. According to the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, an estimated 15% of the adults in the US have hearing loss, with the incidence of hearing loss increasing with age. Without intervention, adult hearing loss contributes to higher rates of depression and anxiety, and may be a symptom of other cognitive disorders, including dementia.

Find out if you are at risk for a hearing disorder or impairment by scheduling your hearing screening today.
