At home hearing test

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - Hearing is something we often take for granted and when it starts to go, we don't realize its impact.

Dr. David Boyd is testing many of his patients hearing.

A quick hearing screen can save your life.  Not hearing sirens or other warnings can effect you and those around you.

Here's a quick at home test:  sit in a quiet room and with your arms at shoulder length rub your fingers together.  If you can not hear any friction at all you likely need a hearing screening.

Your doctor can evaluate types of hearing loss and recommend appropriate the action.
