See the great things our patients have to say about us!
Loved this place! My doctor was so nice and extremely knowledgeable. She made extremely comfortable knowing that I had some hearing loss and what my options were. They are very accommodating and there's never a wait. I've been to a couple of audiologists and they are by far, the best.

Kind and brilliant, Dr.Abergel was wonderful,and extremely knowledgeable both technically and medically. Ms. Santos helped me negotiate financing.They were both great on a personally nice level too. But best of all, they have given me back a world I didn't even know I'd lost. I got fitted today, and it was so easy for me to adjust because of the careful workup Dr. Abergel performed that I FORGOT I was wearing hearing aids! I can hear everything, no distortions, and even my iphone sounds great. Thank you Thank you Thank you!

I'd like to share a little of the huge changes to my life and that of my 97 year old aunt to her new hearing aid.
Feel free to use all or part of this lengthy piece.
She has struggled for years with an antiquated and finally useless hearing aid. Her previous audiologist sent her away saying there was nothing else he could provide and don't bother looking as her brain would not cooperate enough to make it worthwhile, etc.
So her world has continually shrunk, friends stop calling on the phone and only the most dedicated came to visit because it was such a difficult exercise.
As her caregiver and niece I had been reduced to exhausting myself trying in to communicate. I was lately dictating my message to my cell phone then handing it to her to read, which was a lengthy and flawed process.
The first night as we clinked wine glasses in toast she smiled and exclaimed how great that sounded and wondered if she could go the opera and enjoy it!!!
I notice she feels safer and more confident moving around and speaking spontaneously and being animated.
I can even speak to her from the other room and she can understand me! Oh My!
The day after she got the new aids I felt like I was a experiencing 'continental rebound', that's what happens to land previously buried by glaciers starts to expand. We are both so much more relaxed.
I am so grateful that her longtime friend and your patient shared his experience with his first hearing aid. He hadn't known he needed one but for pleas to turn down the TV or radio. But was realizing how much he had been missing.
My aunt was really impressed by his experience and kept saying she had to contact you. She says this in the best money she ever spent and that it is giving her a new lease on life.
And Dr. Medina, she loves you for being so personable and easy to communicate with and can tell you really care about your patients.
Many thanks for providing such great care.
We are enthusiastic to recommend not only the technology, which many people offer, but most importantly wholeheartedly endorse YOU!

I have been using the Uni-Dex device for hearing the human voices produced by a program called ZoomText for people with low vision for more than a week, and think it is a remarkable device. I also use it to hear my mail on my I-Phone. The clarity of the voices is remarkable, and it has enabled me to store my Bose earphones away. It is light, slips over my head easily, and has little or no weight, so that at first I forgot I had it on, and pulled the amplifier with me when I walked away from my computer. It is really an impressive advance in hearing technology, and I can recommend it without reservation.
Thanks very much for making it available for me,
Dr. Cohen., New York, New York
My experience with Audio Help is very satisfactory. The new equipment suggested by the Dr. Bravo and the Audiologist [CariAnne] is a big improvement over the previous equipment I bought from Audio Help. CariAnne is very professional and precise in fine-tuning the hearing aid. I had the [same] experience with CariAnne during my previous visit on Jan 13th. I would like to thank Dr. Ed Bravo for showing [me] how to wear the hearing aid correctly.
Overall satisfaction: Excellent

I accompanied a friend, Bonnie, to a free hearing evaluation with Kareen Medina a couple of weeks ago. I don't have a record of the exact date, but I do know that it was Kareen's birthday.
She was fantastic. She made Bonnie and me feel right at home. She listened closely to Bonnie's concerns, and addressed [those concerns]. [During the evaluation] she explained everything she was doing and why. She was professional--of course--and her bedside manner was off the charts.
I'm at an age when many of my friends are experiencing some hearing loss. I will tell them about Kareen.

During and after my hearing appointment today you brought to my attention that the need for hearing aids goes beyond just the results of a hearing test to determine a patient's need for them. As I sat there and explained what my life was like before hearing aids, you asked me to share with you what having these hearing aids did to change my life.
First of all, I was in denial for years when it came to giving in to having hearing aids; as this is a very common occurrence, even thou I was unaware what life was like without them. As the years flew by I made due with this disability and accepted what I thought I was hearing, instead of realizing that a large part of my life around me was being missed and misunderstood due to the lack of hearing well.
In recent years I would spend time with family and friends, and during conversations I would routinely mishear what was being said, and then make a statement in response to what I thought I had heard, only to draw some laughter at my expense no less; and deep down inside I grew more and more unhappy and embarrassed. This was occurring far too often.
As time went on, I would just nod and agree with what was being said instead of fully understanding what was said, and never really responded anymore to the conversation at that time (socially isolating myself). I tried cupping my ears to hear better, whether I was at a seminar or just conversation taking place and it worked. However it was embarrassing I had to do this often.
The icing on the cake came when my wife, son and I flew out to San Francisco to share in the excitement of the World Series with my family. And as we walked around the stadium in public I could not hear nor be a part of any of the conversation my family was having; ruining a very special moment, and only then did I decide at that time to have a hearing test and have AUDIOHELP provide your wonderful hearing aids.
[My] life has changed more than any hearing test could show as my real life experiences have allowed me to hear things I never knew I was missing. For example, I love music and having been commuting over 40 years, and having driven over one and a half million miles, you listen to a lot of music. I now hear instruments in songs I never knew existed. I now hear when a motorcycle whizzes by ahead time reducing the scare that occurred far too often. And I don't leave the blinker on while I am driving as often. The birds chirping are clearer and making it much more enjoyable. And oh, by the way, I don't have to cup my hands anymore. I now talk on the phone and hear every word clearly.
The things I was missing do not show up on any hearing test and can only be noticed when you have a hearing aid to bring back the precious sounds of life, and reduce the hearing disability to a very tolerable level.
My suggestion is to have a patient carry around a card with some of these hearing issues people will have, and they can just check the box and make notes of any hearing frustration that take place during a week, and then make an assessment of whether hearing aids are a must.
Thank you AUDIOHELP,
It was a pleasure to meet you. Thank you very much for taking such good care of my husband. He is very special to me. Thank you also for being available late in the day. I trust your advice. The hearing test was appreciated and am thrilled with the results. I am sure I will see you again soon.

Dr. Medina, thank you for your thorough examination and evaluation as well as your detailed explanation of the deterioration in my hearing and the 8 year old hearing aid I currently use. The replacement suggested was priced fairly with quick delivery. I really appreciated your professionalism and expertise and will definitely follow up with the other ear within the next year.
