About

The Reid Hearing Center utilizes state-of-the-art equipment to properly and effectively diagnose your hearing problems. We can also provide hearing instruments when needed.

Hearing Loss
Hearing loss is one of the most prevalent chronic health conditions facing older adults. Unfortunately, only about 20-30% of people who could benefit from treatment actually seek help. Untreated hearing loss is associated with depression and social isolation, fatigue, and even earlier onset of dementia than in individuals with no hearing loss. Treatment can significantly improve quality of life both for the person suffering from hearing loss and for his or her significant other. In children and teens, hearing loss is increasingly common. One concern is noise-induced hearing loss caused by unsafe listening to personal tech devices such as mp3 players, smartphones, or tablets. Early diagnosis is critical, as even mild hearing loss can impact a child’s development and lead to academic and social difficulties.
