About The Speech & Hearing Bergen County Park Ridge Office
We have been at this location for 7 years! We provide Bergen County with a complete range of audiology, hearing aids, hearing tests, and speech-language therapy services for children and adults of all ages.
We accept Medicare and participate with Horizon, Aetna, Cigna, United, Oxford, and many other insurance carriers. Unless required by your insurance, you do not need a referral from a physician to receive our services. Our friendly and helpful office manager will be happy to assist you to determine your specific insurance coverage and procedures that need to be followed. We also accept referrals from School Districts, NJ Division of Disability, Division of Vocational Rehabilitation Services, Workers Compensation and many Union and insurance hearing aid plans.
All services are provided by NJ licensed and nationally certified Bergen County audiologists and speech-language pathologists who hold either a Masters or Doctorate degree in their field. All hearing aid related follow up is with an audiologist, not a technician.
We pride ourselves on the comprehensive evaluations and our professional interaction with referring physicians, including neurologists, pediatricians, pediatric neurologists, developmental pediatricians, gerontologists, family practitioners, general practitioners, and otolaryngologists. We also pride ourselves on our educational audiology program and our ability to interact and provide suggestions to teachers and child study team members regarding classroom management and intervention (therapy) strategies to help their students.
Audiology Services in Bergen County
The diagnostic audiology services we offer in Bergen County are designed for children and adults ranging in age from “new-born” to “mature.” Unlike other commercial hearing aid and audiology centers, our audiologists are expert in evaluating children and adults whose hearing is difficult to assess due to various neurological, developmental, or other conditions. We successfully assess the hearing of children on the autism spectrum, with pervasive developmental disability, Downs Syndrome and various other conditions. We receive referrals from developmental pediatricians, otoneurologists, pediatricians, neurologists, otolaryngologists, and over 70 school districts. We work closely with the NJ Division of Disability Determinations, NJ Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, and Spectrum for Living. Many of our adult patients have hearing loss due to a lifetime of recreational and/or occupational noise exposure, the natural aging process (presbycusis), head trauma, or other diseases or injuries. In addition to assessing the function of the peripheral auditory system (outer, middle, and inner ear) we routinely assess (central) auditory processing ability. Our audiology services include (central) auditory processing assessment, educational audiology, evoked potential testing, forensic audiology, comprehensive peripheral auditory evaluation (including air/bone pure tone thresholds, tympanometry, otoacoustic emissions testing, signal to noise assessment, speech discrimination testing, comfortable and uncomfortable loudness measurement), infant hearing screening, and occupational audiology.
Hearing Aids & Tests in Bergen County
The hearing aid services we offer to Bergen County begin with a full hearing test to assess your ability to communicate and interact with your family members, social life and work performance. We find that hearing aids are not for everyone. However, learning how to enjoy a great quality of life despite listening limitations is an important resource our audiologists can provide for your benefit.

Typically, we see children as early as 18 months of age, and adults at any age.

Auditory Training in Bergen County
We are proud to offer Bergen County the best in auditory training services. Even the most state-of-the-art hearing aids can’t always solve all hearing difficulties on their own. To help “keep up” during noisy situations, conversations, and while watching TV, our patients have found that short-term auditory training has added to the benefits of the hearing aids and has significantly improved overall communication.

Individuals in Bergen County that are in need of a central auditory processing evaluation will be able to take advantage of our advanced program.

For example, understanding boat for coat or the not being able to discriminate the difference in sounds between “sh” and “ch” It is a complex problem that affects about 5% to 7% of school-aged children and it is twice as often diagnosed in boys than in girls.
