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


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.
