Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

As a leader in audiology in the NYC metro area for nearly 20 years, my reputation speaks for itself. Patients and their families consistently tell my staff and me how much they appreciate the personal care and family feeling that our practice brings.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

1. Treating reduced hearing with hearing aids and providing service that is customized to fit a persons hearing levels as well as their lifestyle. 2 Diagnostic testing for adults and children of all ages. 3. Empowering patients and their families to take on the challenge of hearing loss through education and counseling.

What are you proud of in your practice?

When I started practicing independently in Brooklyn over 15 years ago, I started with a handful of patients. Since that time we've helped over 25,000 patients hear better and feel like themselves again.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I get the most satisfaction treating patients and families who are motivated to regain their communication abilities and are receptive to the premise that hearing better with amplification (hearing aids) is a process, not an event.
