Hearing loss has been linked to clinical depression, acceleration of dementia, anger issues, social withdrawal and problems with physical, cognitive, behavioral and social function. Because hearing has such a profound effect on our day-to-day activities, catching hearing loss early is important.
A simple hearing screen may now be part of your normal clinic exam. Please tell your physician if you are experiencing hearing problems.
This new screening is part of a full menu of hearing-related services now offered at the Apple Valley Medical Center, including:
- Comprehensive four-part audiometry
- Video otoscopy
- Hearing instrument selection, fitting, programming, cleaning and repair
- Referral for ENT consultation, if needed
- Testing equipment and product lines from Siemens, Starkey, GN ReSound and Microson.
