Our private practice is located in the heart of midtown Manhattan. We offer a strong clinical environment coupled with a strong entrepreneurial experience. Our clinicians care for patients from around the world, and provide services including: preventive hearing healthcare, diagnostic assessments for children and adults, tinnitus assessment and management, and hearing aid assessment/ fitting. We work collaboratively with physicians across the spectrum of care, and pride ourselves in having strong relationships with those other healthcare providers because of the quality of our work. If you are in search of a 4th year externship that would allow you to build a very strong clinical base as well as help you develop your entrepreneurial mindset, our practice would be interested in speaking with you.
