“Got the hearing aids 3-25-19. Right now all is working good. Getting used to turning the volume up and down but it's only the second day.”

“Dr. Marino is a wonderful audiologist and a warm and caring professional. She’s been most responsive when I have a concern. Lashea in the front office is lovely as well. She quickly and skillfully fixed a problem I had with my aid when I came in with just a day or two notice since I’d said I would stop by on my way to a work meeting. I recommend them highly. ”

“Although I had originally been resistant to the whole idea of wearing hearing aid(s), I have now been a satisfied hearing-aid patient with Fairfax Hearing Center for more than 3 years, and have found that Dr. Marino was fully correct with her original findings and recommendations for my hearing scenario. Dr. Marino has been my primary provider here and I am currently using hearing aid solutions recommended and fitted by her. Throughout, she has provided extremely professional care, including periodic testing to accurately monitor my hearing parameters and adjusting and maintaining my hearing aids accordingly. She has also been accommodating with my requests for creating unique combinations of settings with my very-adaptable hearing aids to provide me optimum hearing in unique conditions...”

“I was assessed for, and received, hearing aids from Fairfax Hearing Center more than 3 years ago. Hearing aids are always a tricky thing to program for EVERY setting (never mind SOME), on top of the fact that some bizarre structural things with my jaw made the CIC hearing aid for my left ear either wobble to the point of falling our, or be so tightly in that it mimicked pressure change effects on my small ear canals!! Throughout that process, Dr Rollins (previous audiologist), Dr Marino, and Dr Carter have been nothing but pleasant, skilled, and a real advocate when dealing with the hearing aid’s manufacturer (Drs Marino and Rollins). Thanks to them, I got the hearing aids that I wanted, never once left feeling foolish for all the work I was causing. The office is beautifully run, too - recommend whole heartedly!! ”
