“I can definitely recommend Coastal Hearing Aid Center. My partner and I have been completely sold on their knowledge and expertise in the field of hearing. I have never had a hearing test so detailed and thorough as the one they administered to me. I’m looking forward to all my hearing appointments in the future to improve the function of my hearing aids. You won’t be sorry—it’s worth every dollar you spend. Happy HEARING!!”

“If you are looking for a miracle you have found it at Coastal Hearing and Dr Chris. I had taken my mother, who is in her 90s, to over thirty hearing appointments and purchased numerous hearing aids. We never got good results and spent tons of money. Finally we went to Coastal Hearing and Dr Chris told my mom “You have suffered long enough - you will be hearing by the time you leave here.” And she did! It has been life changing for her and our family. Completely changed her quality of life. We can’t say thank you enough. Your knowledgeable staff were exceptional. McKallah went above and beyond to be kind and considerate. It is more than hearing aids - you change lives. ”

“I have been suffering from a hearing loss for few years now. Had a prior surgery that was not successful before contemplating having hearing aids. Chris has performed numerous detailed hearing tests always taking an amazing length of time with me to explain what was going on with my hearing. He guided me through all the steps to understand how hearing aids work not just with our ears but also with our brain, recommending one specific hearing aid technology rather another, based on my specific loss of hearing and needs. Yesterday I finally left his office after hours of final testings, detailed explanation from him and his assistant, with my very first pair of hearing aids. I immediately rediscovered how it felt to hear properly again! I am adapting to wear them with no problems with the help of Coastal Hearing guiding me through the process with advice, and regular scheduled appointments to make sure my hearing aids perform to their full capacity. Thank you Chris for your amazing professionalism and dedication!

“I have been going to Chris/Coastal Hearing for several years now & have always had excellent service. As a candidate for a cochlear implant, I found myself shut out because of the pandemic. Desperate to hear better, I called Chris as he had just gotten some new updated hearing aides. Even though my hearing continues to decline in my ‘good’ ear, these new hearing aides are so much improved over my old ones. The girls in the office are so caring, also, & take care of scheduling me promptly if I need to come in for any adjustments. Chris & his team are definitely pros!”

“It was my lucky day when I walked into coastal hearing. It was a life changing situation for me best thing I ever did. The people that work there made you feel like at home. I was just going to look and see what it was all about and when I was done I realized it was affordable and I would give it a try. After a few weeks I realize that I should've done that a long time ago it made such a difference in my life I could hear everything that I thought I heard before but I was really hearing at this time it was a wonderful experience. I highly recommend Coastal hearing here with anybody who thinks they might have a hearing problem you won't be sorry.”
