Hearing loss is an extremely common chronic medical condition, yet it often goes undetected and untreated. It can significantly impact someone’s physical, cognitive, behavioral and social skills. It is often linked to depression, fears, phobias and limitations to physical activity.
If you or someone in your family is experiencing impaired hearing, consider contacting the Audiology Center of Yardley. The practice provides comprehensive services to evaluate the hearing ability of patients of all ages.
The Audiology Center of Yardley offers specialized diagnostic hearing testing, hearing aid fittings, hearing aid repairs, custom swim molds and custom hearing protection.
“Unlike some retail stores where you can purchase hearing aids, we are a hearing healthcare practice specializing in the diagnosis and non-medical treatment of hearing loss,” notes Robert Grozalis, Au.D., the independent practice’s audiologist.
Dr. Grozalis is a state-licensed and certified audiologist. Audiologists are professionals trained to test and treat people for hearing problems and provide proper hearing assistive devices.
Hearing loss is an especially common health concern for older people, ranking third after high blood pressure and arthritis. In America, 28 million people experience hearing loss and the vast majority, or 80%, are not properly diagnosed or treated. By age 65 approximately 40% of the population have hearing loss. Half of all people have hearing loss by age 75.
