One of the toughest situations for a person with hearing loss is being able to understand speech in a noisy environment (like a restaurant!) Treating someone with a hearing loss, especially complex loss at different frequencies is as much an art as it is a science. Think about how you would play a trumpet, or violin, even an electric guitar. Treating a hearing loss is a lot like mastering a beautiful yet complex musical instrument. It takes a combination of technical skill as well as good old fashioned determination and experience. Hearing technology is constantly evolving and we embrace all the new technologies that become available, but we would love to welcome you as our client. We take pride in offering the most current products and services. Our office staff is friendly and highly skilled. Please call us with any questions or concerns you may have. We would love to help you with any hearing impairment problem you have.

Audiology Associates Review
“I like that it didn't feel like they were just trying to sell us something. We were able to tell them what our budget was - and they worked within in! Didn't try to sell me more than I needed. AND - they let me try our 3 different sets to hear the differences. That made all the difference in the world to me. Not to feel rushed and pressured at any point. And in this economy, I was very careful with where my money goes! I can tell you though, that as a 'younger' hearing impaired person - this is the place to go if you want incredible customer service and support at the right price.”
“Service, Service, Service!
I really appreciate how helpful their staff is, they go out of their way to remind my father when he is due to come in for a cleaning or for new batteries. They provide the total package, and it's made things a lot easier for me any family. Thanks Guys!”
“Dr. Rifkind tried several different hearing aids until we found the ones that were just right for my hearing and life style.
She was really determined to make sure I was satisfied and hearing better. The office staff was also really nice and made me feel welcome.”
“The audiologist spent lots of time with me to make sure that the hearing aids she was fitting were the ones I would need. I saw her for a few follow up appointments too and each time she was very patient!!”
“I appreciated the fact that they worked within my budget, and didn't try to sell me the most expensive hearing aids. I had shopped at other local offices, but no one else said they could work with my budget. Now I can hear again, and my boss no longer complains! Neither does my family! Thank you!”
“My mom got her hearing aids here - I can't believe how much time they took with her (a lot!!) and didn't charge any extra for it. It felt like we were close friends instead of some stuffy doctor's office. If you want professional but personal care - you should go here!”
