How's Your Hearing?

More than 24 million Americans have hearing loss of sufficient degree to negatively impact their social lives, family interactions or work performance.

In an unprecedented national study, the National Council on Aging found that those with untreated hearing loss can experience higher rates of depression, anger, paranoia and other emotional and psychological distress compared to those who have sought correction of their hearing problems.

It is unfortunate that only 20% of those with treatable hearing loss have taken advantage of the corrective measures that can bring a true change to their lives.

We invite you to take the short HEARING QUIZ. If your score indicates a potential hearing problem, we encourage you to discuss this with Ear, Nose & Throat Surgeons of Western New England physicians and to have your hearing evaluated by our hearing care professionals.
