I’m Dr. Kamal Elliot, audiologist and I’d
like to tell you about sudden hearing loss and why it’s important to seek treatment
right away. Many times, sudden hearing loss is very treatable
if it’s identified and treated early but if you put it off and you wait more than a
week or two then the hearing loss can become permanent. So, I urge you if you have a sudden
hearing loss to call an audiologist right away and get in to have your hearing tested
and get a referral to a medical doctor.
