Each May, Better Hearing & Speech Month provides an opportunity to raise awareness about communication disorders.
Hearing loss is a common communication disorder, and approximately 48 million Americans experience some degree of hearing loss. Communication disorders, including hearing loss, can compromise physical and emotional health and affect social, educational, and recreational aspects of a person’s life. Symptoms of hearing loss for adults can include asking others to repeat themselves, difficulty hearing in the presence of background noise, and feeling that others mumble or do not speak clearly. Symptoms of hearing loss in children may include delayed or poor speech.
At Greater Knoxville ENT, we provide the best hearing care services available. Our six licensed audiologists, who all hold a doctorate degree in Audiology, are committed to reconnecting patients to the world through better hearing. They perform careful evaluations of hearing sensitivity to determine the type and degree of hearing loss so that the appropriate treatment can be administered.
