Lesner Hearing Center, a private practice located in Alexandria, Virginia, helps people achieve better hearing through a caring approach coupled with state-of-the-art testing and hearing aid technology. The practice was opened in 2004 to meet the demands for high service in hearing care in Northern Virginia. At Lesner Hearing Center, we explore the impact of the hearing loss on daily living and discuss options to manage those difficulties. The solutions may include high-tech hearing aids and verification, other hearing devices, counseling and developing better listening strategies. We dispense wireless devices that link smart phones, TV, radio, iPad and other Bluetooth devices to the hearing aids. The education and follow-up that we provide are keys to successful resolution of our patients’ hearing difficulties.
The Hearing Aid Selection Process At Lesner Hearing Center
Our doctors of audiology, Leslie Lesner, Au.D. and Meghan Jolley, Au.D. inventory the listening needs, conduct a comprehensive hearing evaluation, and explain the results in plain language. We teach the patient and family about the nature of the hearing loss and relate test results to daily hearing functioning.
Dr. Lesner and Dr. Jolley have great patience and enthusiasm for helping people get the most from their hearing aids. We help patients develop and realize appropriate expectations using humor, warmth and gentle tenacity.
Patients learn how to make best use of their hearing aids in a relaxed, hands-on dispensing/training appointment. About a week later, the patient and family return for the first of a series of recheck appointments. Live speech mapping is conducted to verify the fitting. Review hearing evaluations and routine check-ups of the aids and ears are done at regularly scheduled intervals.
The services and products we provide include:
Comprehensive Audiologic Evaluation for patients age 2 ½ years through adult.
Hearing aid dispensing from a variety of leading manufacturers including Phonak, Lyric, Widex, Oticon, Resound and Signia. Real Ear/Live Speech Mapping on patients of all ages.

Earmolds and earplugs for sleep, for swimmers, musicians and digital sound plugs for hunters.
