Hearing Services: Turn Up the Volume!
Hearing loss is one of those things that often comes on so gradually that you don’t notice you have a problem until you’re already missing out on more than you realize. What makes this an even more complicated problem is that people are often too embarrassed to address it. But would you really rather keep missing out on the important sounds in your life? Talking with Dr. Brown and the Doctors of Audiology Team about your hearing concerns isn’t embarrassing at all—in fact, most of our patients wonder, in hindsight, what on earth took them so long to come in and get a hearing health solution that gave them back the power to hear the sounds around them!
Do You Hear What You Could Hear?
Chances are if you’re reading this right now, you are already worried about how well your ears are doing their jobs. Take a moment and look through the following situations and see if one or more of them apply to you. If they do, please don’t waste another minute of your life not hearing everything you can hear—call Dr. Brown and the Doctors of Audiology Team.
- Do you have trouble distinguishing individual voices in a crowded room when having a conversation (think restaurants, parties, family dinners, work meetings, etc.)?
- Do you feel like an awful lot of people are mumbling these days?
- How frequently do you have to ask people to speak up or repeat what they just said?
- Do you have to constantly crank up the volume on the radio or TV?
- Do you struggle with telephone conversations or conference calls?
If you notice these things happening more frequently in your life, chances are, a hearing test is in order. Here at Physician Hearing Centers, Cleveland ENT in Mayfield Heights and Macedonia, Dr. Brown and the Doctors of Audiology Team provides the following hearing services to help you jump back into the conversation
This is the starting point for finding out the extent of any hearing loss, the type and where to go from there to boost your hearing again. And no, you don’t need to study for a hearing test! Dr. Brown and the Doctors of Audiology Team will examine your years using the latest technology to measure how well you hear in each of the various frequencies of the hearing spectrum.
These hearing tests give us a lot of information about the extent of and type of hearing loss. You don’t need to be embarrassed if the tests show you have some level of hearing loss! It is a far more common problem than people think, and it spans age groups—particularly as our modern sound environment is louder and brasher on our ears than ever before. Even many children suffer hearing loss that can be detrimental to their learning and development if the problems are not addressed quickly. The point is: do not suffer in silence! You don’t need to. Dr. Brown and the Doctors of Audiology Team has been helping people hear more clearly and keenly for over 30 years. He can walk you through the entire process with compassion and understanding as we work to find the right hearing health solutions for you.
Today’s hearing aids and accessories are revolutionizing the lives of those with hearing loss. Not only do these devices amplify and clarify sounds in a myriad of sound conditions, they empower people to clearly decipher, understand and fully engage in conversations that had been passing them by. Today’s devices are smaller, yet more powerful and fine-tuned—and are even compatible with many mobile devices. They’re pretty cool.
One of the most common hearing problems in today’s world is Tinnitus, which is characterized by a persistent ringing, hissing, roaring or static sound that plagues your ears, making it hard to hear. This damage can come from prolonged exposure to very loud sound environments, but it can also come from various medications. Dr. Brown and the Doctors of Audiology Team can develop a customized tinnitus therapy plan for you that may include medication, hearing aids and sound therapy to reduce the headaches that come from the constant sound interference and help you hear better again.
Helping people overcome hearing loss and enjoy the sounds of life again is one of Dr. Bert Brown’s specialties as an ENT. He and our very experienced staff make your journey clear hearing simple, enjoyable and stress-free from start to finish.
