About Us

Gulf Coast Audiology opened its doors in 2008 with the goal of providing unsurpassed quality and service to our patients. We do this by listening to our patients and understanding their needs and lifestyles. By doing this, we can provide the best solutions to improve their quality of life.

We are privately owned and operated by Dr. Drianis Duran who saw that Southwest Florida needed an audiology practice that made the patient its primary focus.

When it comes to hearing evaluations, hearing aids, assistive listening devices, and treatment of vertigo, we believe patients should seek the most knowledgeable and experienced professional. That's why we hold ourselves to the highest standards, and work tirelessly to live up to them. We invite you to visit us, and see why we're the most trusted name in hearing health care in Southwest Florida.
