Audiology (hearing care)


Hearing loss can be so gradual that you may not notice it at first. If left unnoticed and untreated, it can cause frustration, fatigue and social isolation.

Hearing specialists – audiologists – identify and evaluate hearing loss. They can also help you prevent or live with hearing loss.
