Ensure what you hear becomes what you understand.
My ENT, Dr. K. referred me. I saw one of your speech-language pathologists specializes in voice issues with singers. She was the right fit for me.
I have been hearing impaired for many years and have dealt with many hearing aid providers along the way. I came by Dr. Susan Woods, AuD through a recommendation from a woman with severe hearing loss who was very difficult to fit for an aid. Dr. Wood worked with her through all her difficulty and helped her. This impressed me and when I met Dr. Woods for my own hearing aid, I found her to be very professional and knowledgeable and on target with what she recommended for me. I felt I was being served by a knowledgeable diagnostician rather than someone simply marketing a hearing instrument. She acted as the audiologist she was as opposed to a “hearing aid dispenser”. This was important to me. After my fitting I left her service knowing I could return with any subsequent problems I might have.
Speech and Hearing Associates (SHA) is, in my opinion, the best source for speech therapy in New Jersey. Their Speech-Language pathologists are top notch and easily accessible throughout the state and one can easily find a practitioner skilled in either pediatric or adult cases. Special props go to SHA’s billing department and insurance-wranglers. Insurance coverage for speech therapy is often quite murky and frustratingly obscure but the SHA crew know their insurance double-speak and WILL go the extra mile to either ensure that the patient understands what the insurance companies are thinking or ensure that the insurance companies don’t weasel their way out of paying their due. Long story short: Go to them if you need speech therapy!
I chose Speech and Hearing Associates because my son’s speech therapist highly recommended them. I heard that their practice is very accurate, thorough and meticulous when conducting the test as well as the written report.”
I would like to share with whoever is seeking a professional and highly skilled Audiologist my endorsement of Dr. Jennifer Livelli with Speech & Hearing Associates in Little Falls. Dr. Livelli epitomizes the word ‘professional’. She is very knowledgeable, communicates very well, and carefully listened to my concerns. I am 74 years-old, and have a 5-year old pair of Siemens B-T-E hearing aids. With time, my ability to hear female voices, hear conversation in situations where there are background noise, and fully hear TV and movie soundtracks has diminished. The hearing test Dr. Livelli performed was far more detailed and complete than others I obtained at hearing aid stores. She explained the results of my test and options in easily understood, non-technical terms. At no point did Dr. Livelli try to ‘sell’ me on any option. Her recommendation was clearly and logically the best for my situation.
I have been a patient of Dr. Livelli’s for over 10 years. I have always found her to be competent, professional, thorough, caring an personable. I recommend her highly for hearing evaluations and the fitting of hearing aids. I have also been very satisfied with Speech and Hearing Associates, including the current Office Manager, Jacqueline.
Thank you for everything,
