Question: Dr. Godbey: I am a 45 year old woman and think I have hearing loss. Should I have a hearing test?
Yes! Women are frequently the health-care decision makers in their families but often neglect their own health needs. Many women take time off from work to drive a parent to the doctor. They hold their children’s hands while getting vaccinations. They will call the doctor for their spouse, but they put their own needs on the back burner. The truth is, unless a woman takes care of herself first, she really can’t take care of her family. The ability to communicate is a priceless gift. Unlike poor vision, hearing loss causes even greater loss of social contact and is clearly noticed by others around you. Detecting and treating hearing loss early is a significant step towards improving your quality of life. Call us for a FREE Hearing Screening during Women’s Health Week: May 15-19. Physicians refer to us, patients trust us.
