Dr. Mendy Maccabee treats Hearing Loss in Hood River
Children and adults can experience hearing loss for many reasons. Some are born with hearing loss (congenital hearing loss). Some are exposed to drugs or toxins that affect the acoustic nerve or middle ear bones (otosclerosis) or inner ear (organ of Corti). A few experience trauma (perforated ear drum or chronic ear infection). However, most hearing loss is due to chronic exposure to loud noise; this is why protecting your ears is so important. Any patient who has short term/rapid or long term hearing loss should have a full evaluation to determine the cause and prevent long term damage. Dr. Mendy will thoroughly examine your ears, test your hearing and determine the best plan for improving or preserving your hearing.
