Five Reasons to Get Your Hearing Checked


If you find yourself asking folks to repeat things or your missing parts of conversations it might be time to get your hearing checked. We spoke recently with Dr. Rena Jacbosen a Doctor of Audiology right here in the Southcoast. Here are (5) reasons or warning signs that a hearing test might be in order.

You can hear people talking but you miss some words almost all the time.

You hear ringing, roaring or buzzing in your ears, even when the room is quiet.

Your family and friends complain your TV is too loud, but you like it just fine.

You put your cell phone on speaker to hear better.

You avoid some social situations that you used to enjoy, because you’re tired of asking people to repeat themselves.

Can you remember the last time you had your hearing checked? Most adults haven’t had a hearing screening since grade school (only 14% of physicians routinely screen for hearing loss during a physical). Want to schedule one? Click here: https://www.ascentaudiologydartmouth.com/appointment/

Most people lose their hearing very gradually over time. Less then 10% of these hearing losses can be medically or surgically corrected. Yet, it’s also a fact that with new advancements in digital hearing aid technology, 95% of these hearing losses can be managed effectively with hearing aids. Because nearly one-fifth of all Americans 12 years or older have a hearing loss severe enough that it can make communication difficult, we take your hearing very seriously.

If you’re interested in taking an online hearing test its pretty straight-forward. The test takes about 5 minutes: https://www.ascentaudiologydartmouth.com/hearing/hearing-test-online/
