In May 2010 I experienced a sudden hearing loss. Hearing aids from another prescriber sounded artificial and were physically uncomfortable. I thought my days of playing music were over forever, but my audiologist worked with me to fit similar aids with different receivers and adjusted them to allow me to continue playing music professionally. I am now back to playing and teaching. I can participate in group meetings at my day job successfully. Thank you!”

After many years of dealing with tinnitus, I went to Pacific Hearing expecting to get the same story: “sorry, you will just have to live with the ringing.” I was given a thorough testing by my audiologist, who gave me hope there was something that can be done to improve my hearing related to tinnitus. We discovered that I also had hearing loss! I was fitted with hearing aids in both my ears and life has taken a new turn.
I now can hear the leaves falling! In my work in sales, it is critical that I catch everything my client says in person and on the phone. I have a renew enthusiasm for work as the hearing part is easy, now all I have to do is solve my clients problems. Thanks so much for bringing things back into focus.

What a difference it makes to have the hearing aids on! I should have done this years ago!
Having spent years now with an 85% hearing loss in my right ear, I decided to consult with Pacific Hearing Service to understand what technology advancements had occurred more recently in hearing devices. From battling through cross-talk during business meetings to straining at the movie theater to hear my kids’ whispers, I was growing increasingly uncomfortable that I was missing important information. The new device that Dr. Raguskus showed me was so elegant and inconspicuous, it was almost invisible to others. The moment I put it in my ear, the difference was impressive. I was immediately hearing sounds I wasn’t able to pick up before and the comfort and sound quality was amazing. Thank you, Dr. Raguskus, for giving me back my hearing!
I am delighted to be a client of Pacific Hearing! They are professional and caring, and they have also been very patient with me as I have at times needed to see them for multiple adjustments and on short notice. They always do their best to be very accommodating. I can't recommend them highly enough.

Ten years ago my ear, nose and throat specialist highly recommended Pacific Hearing Service after we discussed my problems with my current and previous hearing aids. It was certainly good advice. The staff at Pacific Hearing Service has what I think is the rare combination of understanding current digital technology, continuing dialogs with the manufacturers on how to best to fit an individual, and truly caring about their patients. I am very satisfied with their services and results. It is clear that their main reason for becoming audiologists was to help patients.

I like coming to Pacific Hearing Service because, without fail, each time I have been serviced, without any time or trouble, I hear much better. I lost my hearing after 4 1/2 years of combat service in WWII. I can now hear far better than I could before. I intend to return every four months. Their services, without doubt, are very professional and friendly. There is no way I could praise them any more. I recommend them highly!

I cannot thank you enough for dramatically improving my mother-in-law's hearing with the new hearing aid devices you have customized for her. This has drastically improved our relationship as she has become interactive again. She can listen and respond and so she asks questions and inquires more about our lives. Who knew that better hearing could lead to an improved relationship! Wow! And thank you for improving my hearing by the quarterly ear cleaning that is required almost every time I get on an airplane.

I drive 110 miles each way to continue my entirely satisfactory experience of twenty-five years with Pacific Hearing Service. Thorough diagnosis, detailed and accurate prescription and programming. Great service. Personal attention and care. I could not be more pleased.

Pacific Hearing has been a great partner over the years. They always make sure that I get the right hearing instruments for my needs, and then optimize them for my specific hearing profile. This has had a huge impact on my business success, enabling me to hear everything whether in crowded meetings, formal presentations, or on my cell phone. An extra bonusa, my blue-tooth enabled hearing aids are hands-down the coolest personal technology around: I am the envy of all the engineers in my company!

I've been going to Pacific Hearing Service for more than fifteen years and I receive excellent service from the office staff and audiologists there. All of the audiologists are extremely professional and well trained. In addition to that, they are personable and courteous. They research their products well and provide expert recommendations based on my needs and not what they want to sell. I am more than happy with Pacific Hearing Service and will continue to refer my friends and neighbors to them.

For more than 7 years I have told doctors and audiologists of hearing problems, but, as the tests always came back "normal," I was sent away with no help. That is, until my husband encouraged me to see an audiologist at Pacific Hearing Service. I resisted, as I was sure I'd be sent away, yet again, unhelped. Despite feeling it would be of no use, I did go to see her. Again, my tests came out "normal" and I despaired, as my hearing problems were causing me great stress, especially as so much of my work was now on the phone, and, in an open cubicle environment, speakerphones are outlawed. In face-to-face meetings, if I couldn't lipread, I was often unable to hear people.
To my great delight, my audiologist, understanding my underlying and very rare autoimmune condition (for which I am hospitalized many times a year), put on hearing aids and I began to cry! I could hear clear as a bell via Bluetooth from my cell phone, and, for the first time, heard the "whoosh" of the air conditioner. I am extremely grateful to her. I can't say enough how rare it is to find a health professional who understands my rare condition, which often doesn't show up on "normal" people's tests, and can help someone like me. She is a truly caring person, and I am blessed to be under her professional care.

I had to get batteries for my hearing aid before Christmas and I got the big package. You all gave me a chocolate ear. I have had more fun with it---I showed it to my sister, gardener, neighbor---he said his late mother-in-law was a customer or yours and just loved all of you. Thought you would like to know---your customers are highly pleased and you are well thought of. Have a great 2013.
