How did you do?

Your answers to these questions only provide an early indication of whether your hearing is impaired or not. If you answered "yes" to 1 or 2 of these questions, you may not need our assistance just yet, however it is always a good idea to have a baseline hearing test. If you answered "yes" to 3 of these questions, you may be experiencing some hearing loss, at least in certain listening situations. You are encouraged to have an annual hearing screening to be on alert for any hearing loss that may be occuring. If you answered "yes" to 4 or more of these questions, we urge you to call our office or contact us electronically to schedule a screening or a complete hearing evaluation.
