“I perform over 120 shows a year, in addition to studio sessions, rehearsals, etc… all with my band Low Cut Connie (which began by recording our debut record in Gainesville). I am always thinking about how I can best protect my hearing while still performing my best. Dr. Baker has helped me for years to protect my hearing and be prepared for the noise exposure of being a touring musician. Ryan is a very knowledgeable and caring Audiologist. He is also a musician so he understands what is required as a performer. I trust my ears to Dr. Baker and so should you.”


Hearing loss, also known as hearing impairment related to aging ranks as the #1 communicative disorder. 1 in 5 Americans have some degree of hearing loss; that equals 48.1M Americans.
Of those 48.1 million, around 4.5 million (11%) are between the ages of 50-59.
Of those 4.5 million, less than 5% use hearing aids.
40% of individuals over the age of 65 have some form of hearing impairment.
By 80 years old, 85% of individuals report some degree of hearing impairment.

Hearing loss is a major public health issue. It is the third most common physical condition after arthritis and heart disease. Hearing loss affects people of all ages – its progression is usually gradual but can be sudden depending on the cause. Hearing loss can range from mild to profound. Hearing loss is often an invisible condition; one cannot easily identify those who suffer from it, and those who are affected often become withdrawn and isolated. They may also exhibit confusion, or personality changes. Conductive hearing loss happens when hearing loss is due to problems with the ear canal, ear drum, or middle ear and its little bones. Sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL), also known as nerve-related hearing loss, happens when hearing loss is due to problems of the inner ear. Mixed hearing loss refers to a combination of conductive and sensorineural hearing loss.


The signs of hearing loss are often subtle and emerge slowly, but in some cases a significant hearing loss can occur suddenly. Either way, there are common indications and signs of hearing impairment. You should suspect hearing loss if you experience any of the signs below:

Participating in a conversation with background noise requires intense effort.

Difficulty understanding the TV or while using the phone.

It seems that others are mumbling.

Finding it hard to understand in meetings or at presentations.

Even simple conversations can be very tiring for people with hearing loss. An individual with untreated hearing loss may not be able to effectively listen and communicate, which can lead to isolation. Hearing loss can be a tough ailment to identify. By paying close attention to these signs, as well as any other changes that you may notice or that family and friends report to you, you can be alert to the need for a professional hearing evaluation. Hearing loss can have many causes, but in most cases, hearing loss can be addressed successfully.


Hearing impairment has many causes. Exposure to too much noise, certain medications, infections, head injuries, viruses, allergies, the aging process and specific medical conditions can damage the ear and lead to hearing loss. It’s important to understand the type of hearing loss in order to find the best solution.
