“Gena Marino and all staff at Fairfax hearing center have been terrifically responsive, caring, and professional for the several years I’ve been a patient. I truly love my Oticon Opn aids I use now. Today I did curbside service for a cleaning due to COVID-19 issues and this worked out great! ”

“I received good friendly service and a nice new set of hearing aids, which I really like. The staff also made certain that I was safe there from the virus that is in our area yet. So it was a very pleasant experience, as in my previous visits. Pretty fast also.”

“I was in a precarious position when one of my old hearing aids conked out in the middle of the pandemic. The company from which I purchased my first pair was no longer in Va. I was worried that with so many people not accepting new clients that I would go with one ear. However, Gina Marino saw me the day I called. She repaired my old one and tested my hearing, which as I suspected has apparently gotten worse with age. A week later she helped equip me with my new ears. Both she and the receptionist gave me an excellent experience.”
