Matthew Young,
AuD

Audiologist

Dr. Matt Young is pleased to be part of the team at South Bay Hearing, returning to his native roots in the South Bay. Matt was introduced to the challenges of hearing loss early in his life, as he was diagnosed with moderately-severe hearing loss at the young age of 3-1/2. The hearing loss was unexpected. Matt quickly began to absorb language after his first hearing aid fitting and has benefited from the technology since then. More than 25 years later, Matt’s hearing loss has become his life’s work. His personal experience with his own hearing loss has provided insight that makes him uniquely qualified to assist others in their hearing journey.

He is passionate about using his experience to assist others in improving their quality of life through better hearing healthcare.
