2019 was a wonderful year! It not only allowed our practice to grow but it also allowed us the opportunity to give back to the community.

Practice Coordinator Mehgan Cash regularly volunteers at the shelter. Not only do we donate to local organizations focused on hearing health, but we also give back to other causes near and dear to our hearts. We have many animal lovers in our practice, so we helped sponsor both Barktoberfest and Paws on Palafox with Pensacola Humane Society, contributing to their spay and neuter clinic and helping animals in need. In addition to sponsoring events with Pensacola Humane Society, we’ve also freely donated to them in memory of some of our patients. This year, we also once again sponsored the Cokesbury Golf Tournament and Liberty Sertoma mini-golf tournament, both of which benefit local Sertoma organizations, allowing more donations of hearing and speech benefits for those in need.

This is all in addition to our Promise Garden Sponsorship for the Walk to End Alzheimer’s back in November. It was such a beautiful event. Lastly, we were able to fit 16 patients this year with hearing aids through the Speech and Hearing Board. This is a charitable organization that provides hearing aids and speech therapy to patients who may not be otherwise able to afford it. We have proudly worked with the Speech and Hearing Board for over 10 years now! In total for 2019, we contributed over $12,000 to the local nonprofit community. In 2020, with the opening of our Gulf Breeze location, we hope to be able to contribute even more. This year has been good to us, and we want to continue to be the best we can be, not just in hearing health care, but personally too.

May your 2020 be a beautiful year!

    I enjoy my life much more with my hearing back intact

     

    The first time I noticed signs of a hearing loss was back when I was with the Memphis Police Force on the first anti-sniper unit (SWAT) team. Shooting many rounds of guns a week led to ringing in my ears, which it seemed was the start of my hearing loss.
    The Hearing Center is the very best in the business. They were the most helpful in the profession that I had seen.
    Since getting my hearing aids, I have no regrets. I enjoy my life much more with my hearing back intact.
    If you are considering using The Hearing Center, expect to be impressed by the best in the hearing aid business. It’s wonderful to hear well again and I can’t thank them enough.

    I was very impressed. The people were friendly and knowledgable.

     

    I first noticed my hearing loss when I was having to ask people to repeat themselves a lot. I decided to get my first hearing test and I was very impressed with the service from The Hearing Center. The people were friendly and knowledgeable.
    Now, I would not be able to cope without my hearing aids. I can now carry a conversation.
    I can highly recommend seeking help from The Hearing Center if you are struggling with a hearing loss.

    I can hear my kids playing, I feel less tired, and I have more energy!

    My hearing loss started when I was just 10 years old as a result of multiple ear infections. I was really struggling to hear, and as a result, I had to have a lot of ear construction to save my hearing. I was told that I would never be able to hear certain tones again.
    For many years, I was living in a world of isolation and I believed that there was no way that I would get all of my hearing back. I had an opinion that hearing aids were for older people.
    When I first approached The Hearing Center, everyone was very warm and welcoming, and it did not matter how many questions I had. They answered them and were very patient with me.
    They fitted me with hearing aids and the results have been life-changing. I can hear my children. They can no longer come up behind me and scare me! I feel less tired, I have more energy, and as a result, I am losing weight.
    Getting help with my hearing from The Hearing Center was the best thing I ever did!

    The Hearing Center truly cares about helping me.

     

     

    I have visited many different hearing care providers over the years but none compare to the level of care I have received from Dr. LaBorde and the staff at The Hearing Center.
    I can honestly say they have changed my life by helping me to regain hearing clarity. I highly recommend them.
