Hearing Test: An Important Annual Screening

June 26th, 2020

You may be familiar with scheduling an annual physical, eye exam or even a dental visit for teeth cleaning twice a year. Your hearing deserves the same care! Hearing is an important part of your everyday life. That’s why we believe that hearing preventative care should be an important part of your routine annual screenings.

According to MMC Audiologist Megan Shissler, Au.D., CCC-A, hearing tests evaluate the entire auditory system including the balance system in our ears as well as hearing.

“We recommend obtaining a baseline of hearing ability, so if symptoms arise at a later date we have an audiogram to compare. If medical intervention is needed, we can monitor the progress of treatment. It is especially important to monitor any changes in hearing, movement of the ear drum, and evaluate the auditory system.”

Hearing tests are simple and easy, as demonstrated by the video below. They are necessary to ensure the health of your hearing, no matter your age. If you would like to schedule a hearing test for you or your child, please call MMC Otolaryngology (Comprehensive ENT Specialists) at 615-867-8110 or visit mmclinic.com/ENT today.

As of July 1, 2020, face coverings (covering the wearer’s nose and mouth) will be required at all MMC locations for all patients and visitors ages 2 and above. Due to an increase in COVID-19 positive cases locally, across our state and around the country, MMC believes that it is in the best interests of our community, patients and staff. While this may not be convenient, our goal is to protect our community. Everyone is encouraged to bring their own face coverings to enter the building. If patients or visitors do not have a face covering they will be given one. Any person who chooses not to comply with this policy will have their appointment rescheduled. Thank you for understanding. 

Your health is our mission.
