Comprehensive Hearing Care is now a fully-integrated service at France Avenue Family Physicians


Part of Every Complete Exam

Basic hearing assessment is now included for every patient at France Avenue Family Physicians. For many patients (age 55+), a simple hearing screening (30-60 seconds) is part of the normal workup before you see the doctor. For patients who need a more in-depth test, comprehensive exams are provided as an extension of your complete annual physical.


All of these services are included as part of the complete annual care we provide to our patients. No charge.


Though the program focuses on patients age 55+ (where hearing issues occur most frequently), it is open to every adult patient at France Avenue Family Physicians. If you are dealing with hearing problems yourself or suspect a problem with a family member, please tell anyone on our practice team. We will be happy to schedule a comprehensive exam.

Hearing is Vital


Our brains are wired to process pictures and sound every minute of every day. When a key input is lost or severely diminished, it can have a profoundly negative effect on the ability to interact with the world around us. As time goes by, hearing function predictably deteriorates for many patients. In many cases, the inner ear is simply wearing out from time and a lifetime of exposure to noise. It is important to identify these changes as they occur and to track them year-to-year.
