How We Can Help
Comprehensive Hearing Assessments
Why Many People Don't Know That They Have a Hearing Loss
We see patients every day that refuse to believe that they have a hearing loss, yet when tested, a rather significant hearing loss is sometimes discovered. Only when we fit them with hearing aids, do they realize just how much they have been missing.
The reason for this is because hearing loss is often very slow and gradual, making it almost impossible to notice any day-to-day differences with no way to compare to what their hearing was once like. This is why your loved ones often notice a hearing loss before you do.
The problem is, the longer a hearing loss is left untreated, the worse it continues to get, with the impact being irreversible.
That’s why we strongly encourage regular comprehensive hearing assessments. They’re quick, non-invasive, and allow you to catch any hearing loss early to take the right preventative measures.
Whether you’re concerned about your hearing or a loved one’s hearing, then your first step is to schedule your hearing assessment.
Prescription Hearing Aid Technology
Choosing The Right Prescription Hearing Technology Based on Your Unique Circumstances
There is no “one size fits all” solution when it comes to hearing technology.
The biggest problem that we see is that many people invest in hearing technology blindly at big box stores or with hearing aid dispensers, with little thought to whether the level of technology is correctly selected for their hearing loss, lifestyle, and unique circumstances.
At West Coast Hearing & Balance Center, our team of advanced doctors of audiology makes very specific recommendations for you based on detailed criteria that has been developed over 20 years of caring for tens of thousands of patients.
This ensures that you don’t only achieve the best possible performance based on your lifestyle, but you’re also able to take advantage of the latest technology, including streaming music, audio and phone calls, and connectivity with your cell phone. Our audiologists are trained and considered Premier Lyric Providers and a Preferred Provider for the Lyric.
It’s important to have a trusted hearing care expert make the right recommendation for you based on their vast experience if you want the best possible outcome.

Local Hearing Loss Journeys
"The staff were very professional and friendly and put my mind at ease"
"I remember feeling confused at the prospect of having a hearing loss. I had so many preconceived ideas about visiting an audiologist but my experience with West Coast Hearing & Balance Center has been 10 out of 10.
"They were competent and knew what they were doing"
“My hearing loss was getting worse over time and I got to the point where I just wanted to hear better again. My impression of West Coast Hearing & Balance Center was that they were competent
“It’s not your fault if you have a hearing loss, and you deserve to hear without having to ask people to repeat everything to you.”
My family has a history of hearing difficulties, with my grandmother being born deaf and several of my aunts and uncles struggling with hearing as well.
“The results have been much better than I ever could have imagined.”
I was advised to get my hearing checked, but my first experience left me feeling like I was being sold a package of goods. That all changed when I met Dr. Nelson. He is a true professional who explained everything and answered all my concerns, which made me feel confident in his care.
“My worries were quickly alleviated when I visited West Coast Hearing & Balance Center.”
I was very concerned about how I would appear to other people if I were to need a hearing aid. Would they see me as old or disabled? And the thought of being dependent on something to hear was daunting.
