Why should hearing loss be treated?

As we all get older hearing loss is going to be something that many of us will have to address, and getting the proper treatment is very important. Hearing loss may contribute to depression, loss of social interaction, and lower expectations of self. Even though proper treatment cannot bring your hearing back to what it was, it can make communication, relationships, daily activities, and even work easier and more satisfying.

"I was in your office a few weeks ago and you tested my hearing for the VA and recommended that they provide hearing aids.  They did provide me with hearing aids which the VA audiological department set up for me.  I was hoping that they would let you do the set up but it didn't work out but I wanted to thank you for performing the tests and providing the recommendations.  The VA provided me with Moxi Kiss hearing aids which appear to be high end.  I really didn't know what I was missing.  These hearing aids help so much and around Thanksgiving when family was sitting around talking, I could hear and understand the conversations clearly.  Thank you so much for your help."
