Treatment Beyond Hearing Aids
Hearing aids aren’t the whole picture for many patients’ cases. Hearing loss can negatively affect your cognitive abilities, be caused by a neurological problem, and also alter your sense of balance. We provide not only hearing aids but also specialize in the brain’s auditory processing capability and provide an evaluation of your cognitive load with a dementia assessment. We also use advanced technology to diagnose your condition, such as custom earmolds and real-ear measurements.
The founder of Coastal Hearing Aid Center, Christopher Sumer, is Nationally Board-Certified in Hearing Instrument Sciences (NBC-HIS). This means that Christopher Sumer has committed to continuing education in the audiology field in order to stay at the highest level of competency and provide the best possible care for your hearing health. When you choose us for your hearing care, you can rest assured that you’re getting the very best care available!
We offer cutting-edge hearing devices and a state-of-the-art testing facility. Some technology that we use at our facility includes:
- Otoscan – a 3D ear scanner that allows us to create custom earmolds
- Cognivue – a high-tech cognitive screening tool that allows us to identify early signs of dementia
- Video otoscope – a device that takes a video of the ear canal for real-ear measurements and sound field verifications
Give us a call at 760-452-2013 to learn more about the advanced technologies used in our hearing centers.
Free Hearing Loss & Dementia Risk Assessment
It is important to find out what type of treatment you may need for your hearing loss before committing to payment. This is why we offer a completely free Hearing Loss & Dementia Risk Assessment to obtain a comprehensive understanding of your condition. We can then recommend a customized hearing treatment plan for you that improves your hearing volume, clarity, and your cognitive abilities.
During your free Hearing Loss & Dementia Risk Assessment, we will:
- Discuss your goals
- Perform a hearing test
- Provide an in-depth consultation
- Customize a treatment plan for you
You will also receive a FREE copy of Christopher Sumer’s book Hear4Life™!
Service Repairs for Anyone
Our office will service and repair your hearing instruments, generally with a day’s notice. If we find that your hearing device needs to be sent out for repair, we can expedite that service as well. We offer these repairs to both patients and non-patients, as we believe everyone should have access to functional hearing aids.
If your hearing aids need to be repaired or need cleaning beyond what you do at home, give us a call. When you come into the office, our staff will test your hearing with your hearing aids to ensure that they are working properly and that we are giving you the best hearing we can. Hearing aid adjustments, frequent cleanings, and regular check-ups are essential to your satisfaction!
100% Clarity Guarantee
We guarantee you will be able to hear better after treatment with Coastal Hearing Aid Center! That’s why our practice offers a 100% clarity guarantee on all services performed and instruments provided. If you are not satisfied, we will try our best to resolve the problems or you get your money back!
If you have any problems, you can contact our office with questions or to schedule a follow-up appointment. Additionally, you won’t have to miss work to make an appointment with us; we offer flexible time slots to work with your busy schedule!
Coastal Hearing Aid Center strives to provide the best possible care and customer service, and we are proud to say that we have received multiple awards for our service.

Same-Day Consults & Treatment Starts
When you arrive for your initial hearing consultation with our practice, you shouldn’t have to schedule a second appointment to start treatment. The sooner you begin, the sooner you can enjoy the sounds of the world around you with improved clarity and understanding! You are welcome to begin your treatment journey on the same day as your free hearing consultation if that is your wish.
Your Time Is Respected
Our goal is to make you comfortable and hope that you enjoy your time at our office, but we don’t expect you to spend your whole day here! Our team respects your time and we work hard to keep our appointment schedule running smoothly. When you come to see us, you can trust that your appointment will begin on time and we will allow enough time for any questions you may have.
Easy Insurance Process
When you come to us for the first time, we will help you with any necessary insurance paperwork. Because many insurance companies do not offer coverage for treatment, we have created a low monthly subscription plan. Once you begin treatment, we are happy to help you submit a claim to your insurance for any benefit that you may be entitled to receive directly to you.
At Coastal Hearing Aid Center, we believe that everyone deserves clear hearing, optimal cognitive function, and the best quality of life possible. However, many patients may hold off on treatment due to the cost. Rest assured, we are here to help. We offer credit plans through Allegro, support through our nonprofit HearShare, and a Hear4Life™ subscription. These are just some of the ways we show our commitment to your hearing health!
As one of the premier audiology practices in Encinitas, CA, our hearing specialist and team at Coastal Hearing Aid Center also provide 5-star hearing care to patients from Carlsbad & Rancho Santa Fe, CA & the surrounding areas.
