Hearing loss can affect people of any age due to our increasingly noisy environment, aging, disease, or the effects of certain medications. Diminished hearing can have a profound effect on quality of life and can be detrimental in workplace, social, and educational situations.
At Forest Healthcare, we offer an audiology evaluation consisting of a series of tests that determine whether there is hearing loss and its degree of progression. We will also work to determine the cause and help develop strategies to prevent or lessen further degradation. The cause as well as the degree of hearing loss, and whether one of both ears are involved will guide treatment or hearing aid options.
Medicare and most insurance plans cover the costs of testing. If you or a loved one are experiencing hearing loss, please make an appointment with one of our physicians.
