If I had hearing loss wouldn’t my doctor have told me ?
This question is in lot of people’s mind. Not necessarily. Only about 13% of physicians routinely screen for hearing loss. Most most people with hearing impairments hear just fine in quiet environments (like your doctor’s office). It can be very difficult for your physician to recognize this problem.
Hearing loss is a gradual process which could be overlooked by your doctor in your routine visits. Only a trained hearing professional can determine the severity of your hearing problem, whether or not you could benefit from hearing aids and which type would be best for you.
