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 today.

As of September 23rd, face coverings are still required at all Murfreesboro Medical Clinic locations until further notice. MMC is dedicated to the health well-being of everyone who enters our buildings. We believe that this requirement is still in the best interest 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.
