How To Talk To Your Doctor About Hearing Loss

Primary care providers are often the gatekeepers to that initial hearing health conversation. And it’s an important one, because an increasing body of research has linked untreated hearing loss to other significant health issues.

Research also shows that addressing hearing loss often has a positive impact on quality of life.

Yet, about 3 out of 4 adult physical exams don’t include a hearing screening. And BHI research shows that patients are more likely to initiate the conversation about hearing than their doctors.

To help consumers start the discussion, BHI is put together a digital handbook, “How to Talk to Your Doctor About Hearing Loss.”

It provides basic information about hearing loss and underscores the importance of people advocating for their own hearing health.

You can view and download the book here.

We encourage hearing care professionals to share this information with their primary care providers, retirement communities, and assisted living facilities in their communities.
