“Dr. Lori Trentacoste is amazing she listened to all my concerns and addressed each one. As an educator I need good hearing in and around the classroom. In the past I was able to lip read what my students were saying, along with the actual sounds that they were making. Today with masks, shields and students talking lower it became more difficult to put together what they were saying. Lori was able to match what I needed to hear better, and to make it a better place for my students to learn. Thanks again Lori”
