Ben is a second-generation Hearing Instrument Specialist. He began his career helping those suffering with hearing loss at his family’s clinics in San Antonio, Texas. This is where it was instilled in him to treat and view each patient as a member of his own family. 

He met his wife while they were both doing relief work after Hurricane Katrina and moved to New England shortly after they got married and are very happy to call it home. 

Ben’s genuine passion is to give people the gift of better hearing and he is entirely dedicated to utilizing his skill set, the latest technology and old-fashioned care and compassion to make sure his patients don’t miss out on a single precious moment of their lives.

Working as an audiologist in a busy practice is a challenging experience that allows me to help many people with a variety of hearing issues. Hearing loss can have a tremendous impact on a person’s daily activities, sometimes causing them to stop doing the things in life that they enjoy. I am able to use my knowledge and clinical experience to improve their quality of living and reconnect them to the things that they have once loved. I am very excited to be a part of Solinsky Hearing Center, and I am looking forward to the incredibly rewarding experience of helping every patient through their hearing journey starting with their very first steps

“After 7 years my old hearing aids broke. I saw Dr. Michelle Colburn and she made some suggestions regarding new aids. I decided on a new pair. The new pair of aids has been excellent. I am hearing sounds that I did not hear with my old aids, and I thought my old aids were very good. The service I've gotten from the Solinsky Hearing Center has been excellent.”
