Are you in the market for hearing aids? The first step in choosing the right hearing aid is choosing the right provider.

At Universal Hearing Care, we’ve been providing patients in the Tarzana, Burbank, Valencia and greater Los Angeles areas in California with comprehensive, individualized hearing healthcare and hearing aids since 2008.

Our staff is not comprised of salespeople, but licensed audiologists who want to help you reconnect with life through better hearing. We believe that education is empowering. To simplify the process of choosing and purchasing hearing aids, we’ll answer your questions and allow you to make informed decisions, without feeling pressured or confused.

How do you choose the right provider?

It’s important to know the difference between a hearing aid dispenser and an audiologist. The main differences are education and experience. In the state of California, a hearing aid dispenser requires a high school diploma (or equivalent), and passing grades on written and practical exams.

Our audiologists have master’s degrees and a combined 49 years of experience in the field of audiology. Their acquired knowledge and extensive training make them experts and the best qualified to provide the right solution for your personal needs.

What about purchasing hearing aids online?

You may be tempted to focus only on the price and choose an online vendor. But that old cliché, “you get what you pay for” is true. By purchasing hearing aids through these distributors, you may save some cash but you’re sacrificing quality, effectiveness, fit, service and more.

Each case of hearing loss is unique. There is no one-size-fits-all hearing aid solution. Our audiologists understand this. They perform extensive hearing evaluations to determine the type and severity of your hearing loss; they conduct interviews to learn as much as possible about your particular listening challenges and offer treatment options based on your test results as well as your lifestyle, cosmetic concerns, and budget.  Universal Hearing Care works with a variety of hearing aid manufacturers to meet everyone's individual needs. 

At Universal Hearing Care, we offer a Complete Hearing Health Care program. When you purchase your hearing aids from us, it’s just the beginning of our relationship, not the end.

When it comes down to it, choose a provider you trust. One whose audiologists and staff make you feel comfortable. Be sure to ask questions. Take a loved one with you to your visits. They offer a different perspective and can provide helpful insight. Inquire about hearing aid warranties, trial periods, and current promotions. Finally, be upfront about your needs and your expectation.

When you choose Universal Hearing Care as your partner on the path to better hearing, you’re choosing decades of experience, knowledge and compassionate care. Find out why residents of Tarzana, Burbank, Valencia and the greater Los Angeles area, California have been trusting us with their hearing since 2008.
