Don’t Wait to Test Your Hearing

“On average, people have trouble hearing for 7 to 10 years before getting help,” says Cristie E. Jones, AuDAudiologist at ARC Kyle Plum Creek in this recent podcast of the ARC Healthcare Minute. “But,” she adds, “you don’t have to wait that long!”

Dr. Jones tells listeners that if they suspect they might have hearing loss, they should contact an Audiologist for a hearing evaluation. She says, “An audiologist can conduct a comprehensive hearing test and evaluation, and provide you with treatment recommendations the day of your visit.”
