Nichols Hearing & Audiology – Top Five Reasons to Test Your Hearing


It’s no secret that hearing well and living well go hand-in-hand! Clearly, this is the heartfelt belief of Dr. Anna Nichols, as her practice, Nichols Hearing & Audiology in Winston-Salem uses those exact words as their tagline. (Hint: Committing that phrase to memory will also help you remember her website:

Since October 1, 2022, she and her staff have made getting to know their patients a priority and have emphasized how much better hearing can improve both personal and professional relationships. An evaluation at Nichols Hearing & Audiology includes gathering your case history, visualization of your external ear canal and a hearing test in the practice’s modern sound booth, using state-of-the-art equipment.

If you’re pondering a hearing test, you probably already suspect there is at least minimal loss, and there are important reasons to make that call today!

  1. Your Relationships: A hearing loss can affect every relationship in your day-to-day life. In the back of your mind, you may be revisiting conversations at home about the TV volume, but also consider those times you’ve been in a work meeting and asked colleagues to repeat comments. Those moments can be avoided!
  2. Personalized Treatments: While 48 million people in the United States have some amount of hearing loss, (that’s one out of five people you meet) no cases are identical. Each of their patients get personalized suggestions for their hearing solutions. Rather than do things the typical way, we’ve created a system designed around our patients’ needs.
  3. Hearing Loss & Overall Health: Less than stellar hearing (even a mild loss) can also affect a person’s balance, making you more susceptible to slipping or falling. And, if that hearing difficulty affects academics or employment, those stressful situations can be detrimental to overall health even more over time.
  4. Anxiety in Social Situations: Hearing loss can contribute to depression and a tendency to avoid social situations altogether. Withdrawing from gatherings with friends may be easier than the awkwardness of keeping up with conversations or meeting new people.
  5. Improving Your Mental Sharpness: Researchers believe treating hearing loss early is one of the key things you can do to potentially reduce the risk of dementia. We all know learning new skills and developing hobbies at every age can increase your mental capacity – but putting yourself out there in a new class or interest group can be stressful if you’re not hearing well.
