In the New York Times on-line today there is an article about hearing loss. The article reports that hearing loss may be the nations "most damaging and costly sensory handicap." It goes on to report:
"Most of those affected can still hear sounds and think the real problem is that people aren’t speaking clearly. They often ask others to speak up, repeat what was said or speak more slowly. Or they pretend they can hear,but their conversations may be filled with non sequiturs."
Does this sound like you? We find that many of our patients at Smart Step Hearing report exactly as the article described- for years before they sought help for their hearing loss they struggled with following conversations. You can read the entire article by clicking here.
