In a crowded restaurant, people often blame their inability to hear their conversation partner on loud background noise. While this may be true for most situations, some folks, however, may be deceiving themselves into thinking that they do not have a hearing problem. Until an appointment is scheduled with an audiologist to test hearing levels, there is no way to know whether a person’s hearing challenges are caused by a loud environment or is a direct result of hearing loss. Once someone schedules an appointment to have their hearing tested, a Doctor of Audiology can determine whether a blockage (such as ear wax) or a physical problem (such as an abnormal bone growth) is to blame.
