The Repair Service
Using advanced equipment, we will perform an electroacoustic analysis of your device to determine whether it needs repair and/or a thorough deep cleaning. This in-depth analysis evaluates all your device’s features and whether they meet the required specifications.
We will remove any internal moisture and debris from the receiver, microphone, and other parts of your hearing aid(s) to ensure your devices are performing up to manufacturer specifications and appropriate for your specific hearing loss.
In addition, we perform in-house maintenance such as replacing receivers, domes, wax guards, and earmold tubes as needed.
Our Audiologists have experience dealing with most hearing aid manufacturers, including Oticon, Widex, ReSound, Phonak, Signia, Starkey, and Unitron.
The Loaner During Repair
At West Coast Hearing & Balance our goal is to ensure your needs are met, even while your hearing aid is in for repair.
IF POSSIBLE, we will provide a loaner set of prescription hearing aids during the manufacturer repair period. Our team stocks a wide range of loaner instruments and we make every effort to provide you with a device as close as possible to your hearing aid.
Please note, we are unable to provide loaner hearing aids for custom hearing aids such as in-the-ear hearing aids and hearing aids that require attachment to a custom earmold.
In summary, our team is thorough and conscientious in getting your device back to its optimum function as soon as possible.
How Much Does It Cost?
A Hearing Aid Check and/or Hearing Aid Repair Office Visit charges vary from $55 to $95, and does not include out-of-warranty hearing aid manufacturer factory repair charges. Out-of-warranty hearing aid manufacturer repair charges typically range from $400-$850 depending on age of hearing aid, parts availability, and if a recase is needed.
If this is your first time at our office, or if it has been more than a year since your last hearing test, you will also need to schedule an updated hearing test (audiologic evaluation).

If you are confused about your benefits, our team can review your insurance coverage to guide you.
