Your Top-Rated & New Favorite Hearing Specialist in Encinitas & Carlsbad, CA

"Coastal Hearing is clearly ‘the’ place to go for anyone who is the least bit concerned about hearing better or even concerned they might need assistance to hear better. I have been a client at Coastal for years (since they opened, in fact) and find the entire team friendly, extremely caring, and most importantly very informed and professional. You simply cannot go wrong. It will likely be one of the most relaxing and pleasant office visits you’ll ever have and could prove to be one of the more important, as well."

- Raymond Bartus
