16 May May is Hearing Health month! Why YOU should get your hearing tested.
May is speech and hearing month, dedicated to drawing attention to and building awareness of hearing and speech issues. Just like your eyes or your heart, your ears should be included as part of your regular health and wellness routine. Stay on top of your hearing health. Establish a baseline. Be proactive.
We challenge you to call 482-2222 and take our complimentary hearing check challenge at one of our 5 convenient locations.

Reason 7: You are over the age of 40.
Many people used to push their hearing health to the backburner, and go for a hearing test after years of nagging by family and friends. Today’s babyboomers are not willing to experience a decline in their quality of life over something like hearing loss. The recommended age for a baseline hearing test is 40 years of age. We do not expect to see signs of presbycusis at that age (presbycusis is the term for age-related decline in hearing), so we can get an accurate picture of your hearing when it is likely still quite good. This allows us to routinely check your hearing, and if there are minor changes in overall hearing health, we can work together to determine the cause and course of action.
