Conditions and Concerns


Dr. Kent

Hearing loss is not the only auditory issue that affects Service members, Veterans, and their families. Other auditory issues include tinnitus, or ringing in the ears, dizziness and balance, and traumatic brain injuries. It’s important to speak with your provider if you experience any of the signs or symptoms associated with one or more of these conditions. An undiagnosed issue could interfere with your medical care, rehabilitation, career achievements, earnings, family interactions, and personal relationships.
