Understanding Your Hearing Test

Human beings hear a wide range of frequencies. The lowest pitch, 20 Hertz, is one octave below the lowest note on a bass player (though this is more "felt" than "heard") and the highest pitch is 20,000 Hertz.

Hearing- in a Nutshell

Managing hearing loss begins with understanding your hearing and how it works. Let’s talk about the hearing system.

Dr Leslie Fainberg

As a young adult, I knew that I wanted to go into a helping profession. For me, earning a living had to be done doing something worthwhile, something that mattered.

I received my Bachelor of Arts in Communication Disorders from SUNY Buffalo in 1995. After that, I went on to complete my Master of Arts in Audiology at Northwestern University in 1997. I completed my Au.D (Doctor of Audiology) degree in 2005 from Salus University (Formerly, PCO).

I’ve been a fully-certified Audiologist since 1998, helping my patients achieve better hearing in a variety of settings including Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx, NY, and various private practices both in the United States and abroad.

I have had various roles in my profession over the years; staff clinician, clinic manager, product manager, and University lecturer.

I have worked with all of the major hearing aid manufacturers, and even a few minor ones. I have sold hearing aids both privately and through third-party reimbursement.

Expert Hearing Advice is something that has been cooking in my mind for some time. My hope is to create the conditions necessary for using my experience and knowledge to make your hearing aid experience a more successful one.
