Sudden hearing loss is a life altering condition and is defined as greater than 30 dB hearing reduction, occurring over a period of 72 hours or less. When diagnosed and treated early the odds of recovering hearing are high. The problem many patients face is delayed assessment, treatment and referral to the appropriate parties.  Presentation to the ENT specialist is often delayed and the 2 week maximum window to commence treatment, covered under OHIP, is missed. Dr. Evans and colleagues are working to change this poor outcome. Visit the clinic for more information/referral.
