Percentage of hearing loss

I concur with Paul. I usually counsel re: function and high
freq=clarity , low= noise or similar. My quip for the "percentage"
questioners is: "Percentage means something only to those who pay
compensation, and I don't." Patients want simple answers, but we can
be guilty of oversimplification.
"I don't know about your doctor's 50% loss, but your wife's right, you
can't hear for a hill of beans."
