If you had a tooth with a painful cavity, you wouldn’t try to fill it yourself; you’d go to a dentist. Likewise, if your leg was broken, you wouldn’t try to set the fracture yourself. You’d go to a hospital emergency room where you’d expect to see an orthopedic surgeon or an emergency room physician skilled in setting fractures.
So when it comes to hearing loss, why are so many people willing to delay treatment and sacrifice quality care?
An Invisible Condition
One possible reason is that hearing loss is an invisible condition, quietly stealing the ability to communicate effectively with family, friends and business associates, and to live life to the fullest.
You may not notice that you can no longer hear the birds singing, or that you’re missing important parts of conversations, but your loved ones likely do.
If someone is urging you to get help for hearing loss, listen closely. You can buy hearing aids almost anywhere and everywhere today, but buying a hearing aid is just one step in treating the problem.
To get the maximum benefit, it’s important you see an expert in diagnosing and treating hearing loss, including programming and verifying your hearing aids.

We have some audiologists whose primary focus is diagnosing and treating hearing loss; some who diagnose and treat dizziness and balance disorders; and some whose focus is tinnitus treatment and management. We work as a team to manage care for patients with more than one of these issues, and collaborate with your medical team.
