Hearing loss doesn’t discriminate. It affects any age, gender, or race, and you may have an increased risk based on a medical condition or you daily level of noise exposure.

Roughly 38 million Americans are currently living with hearing loss and in most cases, symptoms gradually develop, so it may take a while to notice that anything is wrong.

Difficulty hearing in loud situations, muffled sounds, or ringing in your ears all may be indications of hearing loss. Sound familiar? Take the quick self-test below to see if your ears are functioning properly, or if you should seek in-depth testing from our staff in Cortland, New York.

Check yourself or someone you know with these questions.

    • Do people seem to mumble, making it hard for you to understand them?
    • Do you have difficulty following certain women’s and children’s voices?
    • Do you notice that you are favoring one ear over the other?

    • Do you turn up the volume on the TV, radio or stereo?
    • Do you find it difficult to follow conversations in a crowded room?
    • Do you find yourself asking others to repeat themselves?

If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, we urge you to contact our office for a consultation.
