A quick quiz to assess your hearing

“Do you ask people to repeat themselves? Do you have trouble understanding the speech of women and children?” If so, you might have some hearing loss says Dr. Amy Mullin, PhDAudiologist at ARC South 1st Specialty and Pediatrics.

In this recent podcast, Dr. Mullin, asks five simple questions like those. She says if you miss three or more, that could indicate a hearing problem. Dr. Mullin says that she recommends to her patients that they see a licensed audiologist for a hearing evaluation if they suspect they might have hearing difficulties.

If you would like to get your hearing checked, contact Dr. Mullin at ARC South 1st Specialty and Pediatrics at 512-443-1311 or make an appointment online at ARCappointments.com.
