What Our Patients Are Saying
“I have been going to Hearing Center of Long Island for my hearing care since 1997. I had been wearing hearing aids for a long time before that. I’m so glad I found Hearing Center of Long Island. “I’m especially happy to have the follow-up service I get. I have been surprised by the improvements in technology over time. Technology for hearing improvements keeps
getting better and better. The doctors at HCLI make sure that I am introduced to improvements that can help address my concerns, without paying for features and technology I don’t need. “The doctors and staff go out of their way to explain things in a clear and timely way, and they respond to any questions or concerns I have. The service I have received is excellent. I would definitely recommend Hearing
Center of Long Island to anyone struggling with hearing difficulty!”
