Why Hearing Health is Critical to Overall Health

Ask An Expert

Question: I know someone who needs hearing aids badly but will not consider it. They also do not take their prescribed medications routinely.

Answer: Better hearing leads to better patient compliance with prescribed medications and better overall outcomes. This has been repeatedly documented in clinical studies. Untreated hearing loss is linked to poor overall health and unhealthy lifestyles. Our audiologists work closely with patients to improve their quality of life. We help establish the motivation that is critical to their success. A treatment partnership emerges, which is accomplished by our authentic concern for what our patient desires to hear better. A 75-day trial of hearing devices is offered so the patient can experience customized, improved listening and its effects on improved overall health as well.
