Q&A with Our Hearing Specialist

Our Hearing Specialist Answers Your Questions

When Should I have My Hearing Tested? (Click for the answer)

The AMA recommends a baseline evaluation at age 50 if you have no problems and then a yearly hearing screening.

As soon as possible if you or your loved ones have noticed a hearing problem. Turning the TV up louder than necessary for others to hear, misunderstanding speech, asking people to repeat or feeling that other people are mumbling are just a few possible symptoms of a possible hearing problem.

Regardless of age, yearly screenings are recommended for those with a history of diabetes or thyroid problem, a family history of hearing loss, and if you are taking any medications which may cause a hearing loss (check with your doctor or pharmacist).

What's New

Community Involvement
Dorothy Kardos is also an active participant in the HearNow program administered by the Starkey Hearing Foundation.
