Although hearing loss affects nearly 20% of Americans, many people are unfamiliar with even the most basic and important facts about hearing impairment.
If you’re concerned about your hearing abilities or those of a friend or family member, learning more about the condition is a great first step toward successful diagnosis and treatment.
Getting answers to your questions about hearing impairment will help you feel more comfortable, confident, and capable throughout the treatment process.
This page aims to answer some of the most common questions we hear from our patients at Central Oregon ENT; however, it only covers a tiny fraction of the important hearing loss information available today. As you begin to learn about hearing loss, keep an ongoing list of any questions and concerns you have so you can address them during your next appointment.
