When it comes to hearing loss, like any health condition, it can be tricky to reach out for support.

Whether you or someone you know has been suffering from hearing loss, it’s important to reach out for support. If you feel anxious about taking that first step to better hearing, don’t worry—it’s perfectly natural.

With so many Americans facing hearing impairments in some form, it may be surprising to learn that it takes people an average of seven years to seek treatment.

Why is this?

Why Do Patients Delay Treatment?

Well, over our many years looking after those with hearing loss, we’ve found that there are two main reasons people don’t seek help sooner.

The first: the social stigma of wearing hearing aids.

To quash some of these concerns, today’s hearing technology is not the bulky and outdated products you’re probably envisioning. With sleek, smaller devices available, most of our patients find their hearing aids go relatively undetected.

The second is the anxiety that financial burden can cause.

Whether you’re looking to find some answers to a new or untreated hearing loss or you’re looking to upgrade your current hearing solution, the financial implications can be daunting.

That’s why at West Coast Hearing & Balance Center we help you navigate the world of hearing by showing you all the options available to find you the perfect solution.

On top of this, we’ll put our in-house insurance specialist on the case to contact your insurer on your behalf and ensure you’re receiving all the benefits you’re owed.

“Above and beyond customer service. They contacted my insurance company and set up my appointment.” – T. Palermo

Julianne’s Story

With a history of hearing issues in her family, Julianne wasn’t surprised when she started experiencing hearing loss in her 50s. She first tried PSAPs (personal sound amplification products) as a short-term solution.

After being asked about her hearing issues by her boss at work, she decided it was time to invest in premium hearing care with more longevity.

Finally able to hear music for the first time in years, Julianne recalls shedding tears of joy!

Praising West Coast Hearing & Balance Center’s “professional, helpful and pleasant” approach to hearing care, Julianne can now enjoy living her life independently with renewed confidence.

Brian’s Story

After struggling with hearing challenges for around 20 years and making two prior trips to audiologists, Brian still wasn’t happy with his hearing. After contacting West Coast Hearing & Balance Center, Brian says he immediately felt “confident and at ease.”

Impressed from the get-go by the professionalism and knowledge the team showed, Brian was excited to receive his new hearing aids.

Amazed at the difference they made in his life, Brian is now completely satisfied with his hearing and is enjoying taking full advantage of his new life!

Brian fondly recalls how West Coast Hearing & Balance Center went above and beyond to make sure he was happy with his hearing, and he recommends that anyone struggling should visit them.
