Expert Hearing Announces Partnership with Coastal Care Partners

Thursday, October 5th, 2023

Expert Hearing has announced its partnership with local healthcare provider Coastal Care Partners. Expert Hearing was recently founded by Dr. Cori Palmer and Dr. Susan Timna to provide hearing healthcare services in-office and provide a mobile concierge solution.

Dr. Palmer and Dr. Timna have a combined experience of over 40 years in the hearing healthcare industry. Expert Hearing’s services include customized testing to determine how patients hear in noise and in their home environment, extended support hours, scientific based verification on all hearing aid fittings, cognitive screenings as it relates to communication needs, and discounted state of the art hearing technology.

“In today’s medical world, especially post-COVID, we have noted there is a lack of time or personal attention to patients in all medical genres,” says Timna.  “Online and automated answers for help related to overall healthcare or hearing healthcare is not providing patients with what they specifically need to lead a long-term, healthy life.”

Palmer adds, “We have also witnessed firsthand the transition of amplifying hearing loss to treating the whole patient for hearing healthcare. With links to many other health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and dementia; hearing loss is not something that should be self-treated. Medical research has shown untreated hearing loss has been linked to cognitive decline. In fact, according to the Lancet Commission, treating hearing loss is the number one most modifiable lifestyle factor for slowing down dementia.” 

 A passion to address issues such as these led Timna and Palmer to create Expert Hearing “A Concierge Solution” and partnering with Coastal Care Partners was the perfect match. Both providers have a shared vision regarding their healthcare approach.

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Expert Hearing,” said Coastal Care Partners CEO Amy Pierce. “Today’s healthcare world is evolving quickly and providers who embrace a “customer focused” philosophy are the ones making the biggest difference.  We have taken our clients to see Dr. Timna and Dr. Palmer for years and we know first-hand they share our commitment to delivering premier care and great customer service.”
