“What a great experience. I needed to learn about my hearing issues and whether or not I'd need a hearing aid. Had a total assessment. Dr. Marino was thoughtful, considerate, totally knowledgeable and professional. She demonstrated and explained her hearing aids. No pressure; just information. Overall an excellent experience PLUS a friendly staff. Can't say enough good things.”

“My experience at Fairfax Center has been extraordinary. Dr. Marino is caring, thorough, an excellent communicator, and extremely current in audio technology. When a new aid became available she took me through the features and benefits and set me up perfectly. There have been times where I needed an adjustment and if Dr. Marino was not available that day, Dr. Carter stepped in and treated me like I was her own patient. The entire experience is superb. ”

“I have had extremely positive experiences with first Dr. Marino and Dr. Carter. They always make both my husband and me feel valued as long time clients. We have highly recommended their services throughout the years to friends. They always take care of our needs, from providing us the life changing experience of first being able to hear so much better when we first received our hearing aids to troubleshooting any issues that need resolving to providing supplies, maintenance, and hearing checkups. We have been with Dr.Marino for nearly ten years. The staff is unfailingly helpful and friendly. We woud highly recommend their clinic. ”

“Great service. Always attentive, responsive, and meeting my needs. Recently my left hearing aid stopped working. I dropped in during walk-in hours and the problem was repaired in less than five minutes. When I called about it the day before, I received a prompt response by phone, and directly from the doctor. Great place!”
