South Coast Hearing Solutions was created from proprietor Jodie Stewart's desire to open a clinic that truly puts people first and provides an exceptional standard of care, delivered with a dose of friendliness and fun.
"My mantra is 'Exceptional Hearing Care' and it is the driving force behind everything I do," Jodie said.
"It is why my prices represent value for money; why I offer comprehensive rehabilitation training; why I offer Flex Trials; and it's why we offer long appointments so clients are never rushed and never waiting for long periods of time.
"We have a beautiful clinic with a welcoming and relaxed vibe - I love to connect with my patients and this includes having them drop in for a cup of tea and a chat from time to time too!"
South Coast Hearing Solutions opened its doors on August 12 this year and is located in Fairy Meadow right next to Tyrepower (look for the big pink flag).
Jodie also has a visiting site at Dapto Medical Doctors with Dr Bernard Lee every Tuesday.

The audiology clinic offers hearing assessments for anyone over the age of six, hearing aid rehabilitation and communication training for adults, servicing and repair of hearing devices, tinnitus assessments and management counselling and can also help with hearing loss claims (iCare/WorkCover).
"I believe we have two things that set us apart. One is our ReConnection Program - I have developed a comprehensive program of multiple follow-up appointments plus an online communication training subscription to gently guide our clients back to better hearing, one step at a time," Jodie said. "In addition, I offer Flex Trials - a totally obligation free trial of hearing aids."
South Coast Hearing Solutions is an independent provider, which means they can choose from a large array of hearing devices to select that which best suits the client's needs.
Jodie says the latest generation of hearing devices are incredible compared to their predecessors. All manufacturers now offer lithium ion rechargeable models so there is no more hassle of changing batteries.
Bernafon's latest devices have the ability to process sounds in 'real time' - within eight milliseconds! Unitron's latest offerings come with direct to ANY phone (not just iPhone) for a truly handsfree streaming experience, while Starkey's latest hearing aids are also fitness and health trackers that can detect if the client has fallen and will send an alert to selected contacts.
Jodie has been in the hearing industry for over 10 years, works closely with Sydney Ear, Nose and Throat Surgeon, Dr Phillip Chang and recently accepted the volunteer position of president of the charity Himalayan Health and Hearing.
