Twenty-eight million Americans experience some form of hearing disorder.

There may be a solution to your hearing difficulty. Whether the problem is ear infections, hearing loss, dizziness or vertigo, St. John’s Episcopal Hospital is offering a new audiology program that can evaluate and treat hearing disorders in people of all ages. “Hearing is an invisible disability that almost always comes on gradually,” said Sheldon Genack, MD, Chief of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at St. John’s. “Whether the impairment has been caused by loud noise, a family history, or just the aging process, it should not interfere with one’s quality of life. In many instances, we can help.”

At St. John’s, audiological evaluations are conducted by a New York State-licensed audiologist, with state-of-the-art audiometry equipment and a sound-proof booth. To make an appointment please call 718-869-7690. Most insurances are accepted.
