“What Dr. Magilen has done for me is nothing short of a miracle. I have been wearing hearing aids for the past 14 years and although I was able to function, I had to give up my teaching position three years ago at a university because I could no longer hear my students. I cannot help but thank Dr. Magilen for helping me get my life and my ability to teach back.”

~ Maria Victoria Gonzalez, San Francisco, CA

More Testimonials


Welcome to Walnut Creek Hearing Center

Dr. Gil Magilen takes a new approach to hearing technology, ensuring each one of his patients receive the best care possible. As a UC Berkeley-trained biophysicist and neuroscientist, he has been developing hearing aid fitting methods and making a plea for advanced training in the hearing-aid provider community for over 30 years.

Dr. Gil Magilen

He developed and patented real-ear hearing measurement instrumentation and methods that create objective, scientifically verifiable solutions for people with hearing impairments to assure optimal performance from their hearing aids.

His methods require the detailed management of sound for each individual ear and neurological ability. He tells consumers, "If you can't hear whispers and loud sounds comfortably and naturally, you may have been misfit."

Properly correcting hearing impairment is a challenging and difficult task. This website contains resources to help patients understand their hearing impairment and evaluate the effectiveness of the hearing aids they buy.

Providing just enough comfortable amplification to get a person to become "deceptively satisfied" and buy hearing aids is easy, even if they are not receiving their proper correction. The problem for many patients is that they don't know what a proper correction sounds like, so they don't know what to realistically expect. This results in wasting money, buying hearing aids, and accepting benefits, significantly below their hearing potential.

Over 1 million people buy hearing aids and don't use them.

Dr. Gil doesn't want you to be one of them! At Walnut Creek Hearing Center, we are here for you.
