The better hearing professionals
As an audiologist, I often see that hearing loss goes undetected for years, many times leading to feelings of isolation, frustration, depression, and tension between loved ones. I am committed to helping you understand the nature of your hearing loss and how current technology can help you. Diagnosing, treating and counseling patients with hearing loss takes devotion as a professional, but in the process, I find that I learn so much from my patients! My clientele now includes a significant number of younger individuals, who are recognizing earlier on that they can be helped significantly by today’s hearing devices which boast great looks and excellent sound quality. I find it so rewarding when my patients discover a better quality of life through better hearing.” Education and Associations * B.A., Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology, Brooklyn College of the City University of New York 1994 * M.S., Audiology, Brooklyn College of the City University of New York,1996 * Au.D.
