Did you know that common health conditions such as diabetes, osteoporosis,
hypertension, obesity, and heart disease are correlated with increased
risk for hearing loss? Other factors such as smoking, noise, and certain
medications can also put you at risk for hearing loss. Hearing loss, if
left untreated, can put a person at risk for accelerated, cognitive decline
(i.e., dementia), depression, anxiety, increased risk of falling, and
One in three people over the age of 60 have hearing loss, making it one
of the most common health conditions in the United States. One in five
teenagers has some type of hearing loss. Tinnitus affects one in five
people and 90% of those people with tinnitus also have hearing loss.
Hearing loss can only be diagnosed by an audiologist. Bozeman Health Audiology

We also hold certificates of clinical competence from the American Speech
Language Hearing Association.
