Family Doctors Normally Do Not Detect Hearing Loss

Family Doctors Normally Do Not Detect Hearing Loss

Don’t count on your family doctor to detect that you have hearing loss.  Only 14% of physicians routinely screen for hearing loss during a physical. Since most people with hearing impairments hear well in a quiet environment like a doctor’s office, it can be virtually impossible for your physician to recognize the extent of your problem. Without special training, and an understanding of the nature of hearing loss, it may be difficult for your doctor to even realize that you have a hearing problem.  Little Rock Audiology is trained to detect hearing loss.  Call us today and schedule your appointment.
