8 Reasons to Choose Gulf Gate Hearing Center

#1 - Truly Independent

Sarasota is one of the most populated parts of the country when it comes to hearing care clinics, yet we have been the longest-standing independent clinic since 1977.

Being an independent business means that we can make the best possible decisions for our patients and the long-term future of this community.

Notably, this includes choosing to partner with all hearing aid manufacturers (rather than be limited to one like many chain clinics) to ensure we can always choose the right technology based on a patient’s unique circumstances, needs, and budget.

Sometimes, we find the perfect technology right away, and other times, we work with you to try different devices until you’re delighted. You always remain the priority.

#2 - Delivering the Highest Levels of Hearing Care

We take great pride in how we deliver our services and are constantly striving to further improve our levels of hearing healthcare.

This includes investing in the latest state-of-the-art equipment, continually attending trainings/courses, and being part of industry groups made up of the best clinics in the country.

#3 - 45 Years of Serving Sarasota and Bradenton

We’re proud of our track record and reputation that sees us as the longest-standing independent clinic in the area, with our doors originally opening in 1977.

Clearly, we have done some great things during those years to build our reputation today, and we’re obsessed about doing more great things today to ensure we’re still serving this community for the decades that follow.

#4 - This Is Much More than Hearing Care

Advanced hearing healthcare that delivers the solutions you’re looking for is only part of what we do. The other part is delivering an experience that has you looking forward to your next appointment.

This is not a sterile, stuffy medical environment with bland waiting rooms and passionless relationships. Instead, this is a warm and welcoming environment that will become somewhere you enjoy visiting.

#5 - Trusted by Thousands of Local People

Over the years, we’re delighted to have impacted thousands of local families by helping thousands of patients to achieve better hearing and reconnect with the world around them.

The impact of hearing loss goes far beyond the patient themselves, and we feel proud of our role in this community’s hearing health to date and are passionate about touching the lives of thousands more in the years that follow.
