At Internal Medicine Associates of Texas, we offer audiology evaluations for our primary care patients who are 50 years of age and older.
Hearing loss starts much earlier than people think: at around 50 years of age for men and 55 to 60 for women. Because hearing loss is typically gradual, your family and friends are often the first people to notice that you are experiencing hearing difficulties.
Signs of hearing loss:
Do you prefer the volume of the TV or radio louder than most people?
Do you believe people sound as if they are mumbling?
Do you experience ringing in the ears?
Have you been told you speak too loudly?
Do you have trouble understanding others in noisy environments?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may need a hearing evaluation. With nearly 50 million Americans suffering from hearing loss, we believe it is necessary for patients over 50 years of age to have an annual hearing evaluation.
If you or someone you know is experiencing signs of hearing loss, call our office at (972) 566-8899 and schedule a FREE hearing screening!
