Why Our Clinic?
More than 48 million Americans have significant hearing loss. Hearing loss can be a gradual developing disorder that can affect people of all ages. Hearing loss is a major public health issue that is the 3rd most common physical condition only after arthritis and heart disease.
There are a few types of hearing loss (conductive hearing loss, sensorineural hearing loss, mixed hearing loss). Your time with Dr. Powell is to determine the type of hearing loss that is present. Once the type of hearing loss is diagnosed, the appropriate recommendations are provided. There are times when a patient will need to be referred to a physician for a treatable hearing loss.
