Hearing loss is never normal at any age
You don’t know what you don’t hear
Untreated hearing loss is related to the onset of Dementia. The more hearing loss we have, and the longer it goes untreated, the more likely someone is to Dementia compared to those with normal hearing. A research article from a 2011 study performed at Johns Hopkins University by Dr. Frank Lin is available in our patient resources page. There, you can read how researchers in the study determined that hearing loss and Dementia are strongly connected even after accounting for other risk factors such as Diabetes, high blood pressure, and age.what to expect

Very thorough and complete testing. Explained and very honest according to what I needed
My 92yr old mom was referred to Dr Smith due to hearing loss even though she has hearing aides. Dr Smith treated my mom like her own family and took such wonderful care of her. She actually retested mom's hearing and thankfully reprogrammed her hearing aides as well. The hearing aides were not programmed where they should be leaving mom's hearing at 40%. Not good enough so with some tweeking and adjustments my mom's face lit up when she could actually hear our conversation. We were both so so happy that Dr Smith was able to treat mom from a medical standpoint instead of just audiology side. Again Dr Smith thank you with all of my heart.
Great Doctor. Very knowledgeable.
