Methodist Physicians Clinic Audiology Services

Audiology is a branch of health care that studies, diagnoses, treats and prevents hearing disorders. Hearing loss affects nearly 36 million people in the United States. Impaired hearing may be caused by many things.

Older people are the largest group affected by hearing loss. The contributors range from excessive noise, drugs, viral or bacterial infections, head injury or head tumors, and heredity. One in three older adults over age 60 has hearing loss. Nearly half of people over age 75 have hearing loss.

Hearing loss can have a deep impact on your overall well-being. The audiologists at Methodist Physicians Clinic - Council Bluffs can help diagnose a hearing impairment and provide a solution to improve your quality of life.
