Hey there,

Let us begin by saying that everyone at The Hearing Center MCC hopes you had a fantastic holiday experience.

We know some of you may have had to adapt your celebrations this year, but we’re looking forward to hearing all your stories when you next speak to us!

It’s true that 2020 didn’t go exactly how we anticipated, but there are so many reasons to be optimistic about 2021!

Most importantly, the team was thrilled to hear that there are effective vaccines available, meaning that one day soon, we will all be able to meet up with friends and loved ones safely.

However, throughout the pandemic, the team has also revolutionized the way we operate to bring you a range of secure, non-contact care options, no matter the situation.

Our Tele Audiology service removes the concept of travel and allows our patients to meet face to face over a video call. This means you can communicate directly with your audiologist without having to schedule an office visit.

Our patients love having the extra time in the day to spend with the kids! Providing specialist service at our patients’ safety has always been our goal, and we can’t wait to see your faces very soon.

As a result, there are now more ways to get specialist hearing care solutions than ever before. But the thought of seeing our office full of people once again – potentially in 2021 – fills everyone with joy, and for us, that day can’t come soon enough!

If you would like to book an appointment or find out more about how we can assist you, call our friendly team at 850-474-8328 (Pensacola) or 850-969-2327 (Gulf Breeze).

Updates from The Office

We’re loving our new office in the Gulf Breeze Parkway! Visiting a hearing clinic can be intimidating, and we know that not everywhere is as friendly as us.

Enjoy a free coffee on us while you’re seated in the waiting lounge!


Who am I?

It’s true to say that many of you enjoyed our holiday game in last month’s newsletter, and everyone at the office loved your feedback. So, to lift all our spirits, we decided to run another game, “Who am I?”, where you need to guess the person using the clues below:

1) I was born in Waco, Texas in 1945 and later moved to California with my family.

2) I went on to become a well-known comedian, making appearances on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and Saturday Night Live, which I have hosted 15 times in total.

3) Alongside stand-up routines, I had a successful career as a writer and actor, starring in Roxanne, LA Story, and Cheaper by the Dozen.

4) More recently, I’ve been touring with my friend and fellow comedian Martin Short, providing audiences with an evening full of laughs.

Think you know who I am? Let us know your guesses at your next appointment!

Are you Concerned About Your Balance?

The past few months have made everyone feel like they have woken up on the wrong side of the bed. But have you noticed a change to your balance recently?

Hearing loss presents many issues, however, one of the main side effects is the loss of balance.

What are the symptoms?

• Issues with concentration/ feelings of confusion

• Vomiting or becoming extremely nauseous

• Regular headaches/migraines

These are just a few of the many side effects you may experience, and each individual will have a different experience. Thankfully, we offer Balance Disorder Assessments.

This allows us to use infrared cameras to analyze your vision along with a range of procedures to ensure you receive the most advanced treatment possible.

Get in touch with our team if you or a loved one has witnessed a balance problem recently!

    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.
