Ear, Nose and Throat (Otolaryngology)

Why miss joyful laughter and talk among friends?

Additionally, for your safety and quality-of-life you should be able to hear and understand a doctor's advice. It's important to hear and respond to doorbells, alarms or warnings.

Decide whether to visit a doctor
Answering yes to three or more questions provided by National Institutes of Health will help you decide if you should have your hearing checked by a doctor:
  • Do I have a problem hearing on the telephone?
  • Do I have trouble hearing when there is noise in the background?
  • Is it hard for me to follow a conversation when two or more people talk at once?
  • Do I have to strain to understand a conversation?
  • Do many people I talk to seem to mumble (or not speak clearly)?
  • Do I misunderstand what others are saying and respond inappropriately?
  • Do I often ask people to repeat themselves?
  • Do I have trouble understanding the speech of women and children?
  • Do people complain that I turn the TV volume up too high?
  • Do I hear a ringing, roaring, or hissing sound a lot?
  • Do some sounds seem too loud?
