“I have never been treated with such , kind , compassionate, care from people who truly, give their time, attention , and detailed information. It is very difficult to come to terms with the fact of needing hearing auds. At age 56. And i was treated so well. And I would recommend them to “ everyone “ I know!!! God bless you all!! ”

“I am very grateful for the professional, courteous and helpful employees at Coastal Hearing Center. I am the POA for a 96 Y/O father who can NOT hear and whose health is declining. As I travel this journey with my father, I am reminded of the very famous, educator, Helen Keller who said: “Blindness cuts us off from things, but deafness cuts us off from people.” Unfortunately, I personally, know very well how true this is. Nicole went above “her job description” in assisting me. Kudos as well to Rick who went to the assisted living facility and made a professional examination of the hearing aid. Thank you. The actions of your employees serve your business very well. I send you best wishes for many future years of serving the Pawley’s Island community and beyond. ”
