When to Visit an Audiologist

Complications with hearing can sometimes be difficult to identify, but there are some signs that indicate it may be time to call a hearing doctor. Consider having your hearing checked by a clinical audiologist today if:

  • You hear a buzzing, ringing, chirping or roaring (tinnitus)
  • People complain that your radio or television volume is turned up too loud
  • You have difficulty understanding the higher pitched speech of children
  • You find that others often mumble or do not speak clearly
  • You have difficulty understanding people in noisy environments
  • You often ask others to repeat themselves
  • It is a strain to understand a conversation
  • Environmental sounds seem too loud, such as an airplane flying overhead, ambulance sirens, music concerts or construction noises
  • You experience sensitivity to sounds (hyperacusis or misophonia) not bothersome to others
