The Hearing Center patient testimonial from Natasha Hastings


“I can hear my kids playing, I feel less tired, and 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!

“I was very impressed. The people were friendly and knowledgeable.”

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 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.

“They are concerned about you.”

Sarah was no stranger to The Hearing Center MCC.

She says, “I was very familiar with The Hearing Center MCC because Dr. LaBorde and Dr. Holdt had managed my Cochlear Baha implant for five years, ever since I had moved to Pensacola from Illinois.”

So when her “good” ear started to show signs of hearing loss, she had no reservations about continuing her care with the team.

“I realized I couldn’t keep up with conversations. I had to have the volume on the TV and radio turned up. If my back was turned, I couldn’t hear my husband walking through the room. I knew my hearing was deteriorating and I wondered if a hearing aid would really make a difference,” she recalls.

“I was confident that if I really was suffering from age-related hearing loss in my good ear that the staff at The Hearing Center would be able to help.”

Recounting her initial impressions of The Hearing Center MCC, Sarah says, “From my first appointment, I knew I had found the right people to manage my hearing concerns. The staff was very knowledgeable. Not only were they concerned with my hearing issues but also with me as a person.”

Fortunately, Sarah’s new hearing aid resolved many of the issues she was struggling with.

“I noticed immediate improvement in my hearing. I turned down the volume of the car radio as I left The Hearing Center wearing my new hearing aid.

“At home, I could hear the quiet sounds I had been missing. In group settings, even in noisy restaurants, I could follow the conversation without straining.”

Sarah is also impressed with the latest technology features. “The Bluetooth capability of the hearing aid made telephone calls so much easier to hear,” she adds.

Giving The Hearing Center MCC a 10/10 rating, she reassures others, “The staff is knowledgeable and they are concerned about you. They go out of their way to help you find solutions to your hearing problems.”
