“Even after moving away from Long Island I continued to rely on Lori and her staff from hours away. I've worn hearing aids for 30 years due to military service and they are the best audiologists I have ever worked with. They are very patient oriented and a pleasure to work with.”

“What a wonderful experience with incredible staff and very dedicated and patient Doctors. I took my 3 year old with unilateral hearing loss to this facility for continued testing and to get an aid. They were all so friendly and patient with him! They have gone above and beyond to help us with what we need and have given us so much support in guiding us to receiving what my son is entitled to. ”

“I have been needing hearing aides for 15 years and using them for 10. I recently came to this practice for repair which went well. My hearing aides were 5 years old and I noticed I was becoming less engaged with my friends. I went to see Tara and she went through a series of tests. I told Tara what I was experiencing . I told her I just started piano lessons and I have always loved music. Tara suggested I try a particular brand and style that could suit me needs. When I left her office I turned on the radio in my car and listened for 15 minutes to my recorded music that I've been listen to for years. I could hear pianos where I never knew they existed. I am a very happy man. Thank you Tara for listening to me and finding the perfect match for me.”

“I recently had the pleasure of meeting with Dr. Tara Mazzone to have my hearing tested & then fitted for my first pair of hearing aids. She was extremely helpful in guiding me through the process of restoring my hearing after many years of denial and then tweaking them until I was completely satisfied! I have found all the doctors there to be caring and ready to help everyone who walks in the office and you won't find a better front desk staff who are all friendly and willing to do everything possible to assist you from scheduling your next appointment to getting any problems corrected as quickly as possible with your hearing aids. So my deepest thanks to to Drs. Tara, Lori & Tracey as well as Emily, Wendi, Kathy & Holly for making this experience a memorable and successful transition. You will not find a more caring group of people anywhere than at Island Better Hearing! ”
