Welcome!

“I encourage everyone to visit your local audiologist and have a hearing assessment. This exam is pivotal in maintaining your overall health at any age. Hearing loss can impact more than just communication; there are social, physical, psychological, and cognitive implications. We can help protect your hearing with custom preservation options when attending noisy venues or work environments.

We can also treat your hearing with state of the art technology and a comprehensive treatment plan to meet your lifestyle, your needs, your cosmetic concerns, and your budget. Advancements in technology and treatment of hearing loss allow more options today that have not been accessible to us in the past. Please contact me with any questions, concerns, or to locate a professional near you. I am happy to help.”

Welcome to my page…. Here I will post some updates about audiology, anything to do with ears! and anything I LOVE.

*ME*

I own NYC Hearing Associates, PLLC along with co founders Dr. Jessica Frankel & Kristina Bassingthwaighte.  We took a vision and created a reality and we continue to work on our patient centered practice every day of our lives.

I LOVE WHAT I DO!  I have to try not to bring up ears or hearing in every conversation– I mean we have ears right?  We all can relate to that at least? What we do with our ears is our own decision and I respect that.. I specialize in diagnosing and treating hearing loss and its symptoms.  I specialize in custom fittings for all products.  I don’t stop talking about hearing because there are so many messages to share , to advocate for.

I am a Hearing Advocate/ a Hearing Ambassador–a person who publicly supports or recommends a particular cause or policy / a person who acts as a representative or promoter of a specified activity. (dictionary.com)

Why?  Yes, I love making a difference.  I take pride in my work.  I meet so many people “patients” that I genuinely care about their happiness and success.  I don’t always want to share how much I love my cofounders, coworkers, patients, and family who support what I believe in, because that is a form of bragging….   not my style.  I do realize that if I share some of these experiences, stories, visions then it might help someone who didn’t realize they could be helped.   That if I shared a piece of information to someone it could impact his/her life and therefore positively impact others.  Some times I won’t be able to help the person in need, but I can help support his or her family or educate his/ her employer or educate an employer to incorporate certain Life Changing policies.

Get Ready!  These days fly by, living in NY & working in NYC is fast paced.  I’m also a mom of 3 daughters, 2 dogs, & 2 bunnies and I adore hanging with my husband Steve.  So when I’m at the office my day is dedicated to my patients & when I am home, I am a dedicated mom & wife and at times I turn the screen time off so please bare with my response time to emails.  I prioritize urgent patient care & my family.

So here I will share my stories as well as stories of others with permission.
