“My mother was hearing-impaired. South Bay Hearing has a professional look, and I knew I was in the right place.

Go for it: South Bay Hearing will make you whole! My hearing aids are very important, and life would be unbearable without them.”

—Greg Donahue 10/10

“I found myself asking people to repeat what they had just said to me. Everyone [at South Bay Hearing] was so friendly, and my hearing aids lessened the pressure of worrying I would miss something important that had been said.”

—Evelyn B. Empie 10/10
