Most of our patients wait too long to get their hearing tested because they don't realize the damage hearing loss can cause. In addition, patients are bombarded with mountains of information, ads, emails, which can get overwhelming. They also have this misconception that hearing aids are these big bulky devices that will be noticeable.
