    Potomac Audiology
    Dr Gail Linn is an excellent, thorough, thoughtful provider. Her concern is for the satisfaction of the patient, and she takes time to explain the testing, results, and subsequent hearing aids, if required.

    Ascent Audiology & Hearing
    Looking back, I have had a steadily deteriorating hearing for a number of years but I did not feel the urgency to have my hearing professionally checked. After I retired, my work as a volunteer required me to speak to a large groups of people in an auditorium-size room. I felt frustrated because I was not able to hear the questions audiences sitting in the back rows asked. I went to Accent and could not have a more satisfying experience. Dr. Anzola worked patiently with me. She and her assistant guided me through some of the new technologies developed in hearing aids, scheduled periodic appointment to check on my progress, and made me feel I was being taken care of every step of the way. Now I feel I can interact with audiences proficiently, which in turn makes me feel more confident.

    Lesner Hearing Center
    I've received audiology services from Leslie Lesner for about 25 years. She is an outstanding professional. My Federal career included managing disability and rehabilitation policy, services and research. Over my career I worked with many projects, issues and professionals related to hearing loss. I've also served as an advocate for Deaf and H-O-H people. I've been very pleased that I can always count on Leslie to be informed and skilled with the newest technology and advances. I strongly recommend her services.

    AUDITORY SERVICES
    I am SO glad I found Auditory Services, with your help!!! Dr. Jeff Zolt is top-notch -- really knowledgeable, truly interested in providing great value, speedy, and very personable! He gave me a very thorough hearing test and quickly identified the right type of hearing aids for me (Widex). They came in quickly, fit perfectly, stay put, and provide wonderful hearing quality -- a massive improvement over the Beltone hearing aids I had before, which actually cost me 1/5 more when I bought them some years ago! Karen is top-notch, too -- really knows her stuff and is also super-nice! She immediately resolved a problem I had with one of the aids a few months after my purchase -- tried to help me solve it over the phone, and when that didn't work, she had me come in right away and fixed it in no time (for free). I couldn't be happier with the quality of the hearing aids and the superb service I've gotten, and I strongly recommend Auditory Services for anyone who needs hearing aids!!! Thank you so much!

    Lesner Hearing Center
    After considerable reading on the matter and talking with a friend who had been an audiologist for the Veterans Administration, I thoroughly checked out the available hearing centers and audiologists in the area through Angie's List and other sources on the Internet as well as personal recommendations. I narrowed my search to two providers, finally deciding on Lesner Hearing Center, largely due to the many good reviews found on Angie's, many from people who seemed to have the same concerns and expectations that I had. My first visit was in late September, 2016, and I met with Dr. Abby Holauchock, who gave me a hearing assessment that she then compared with my chart from earlier in the year that I had brought with me. Abby's assessment was at least as detailed as that from my healthcare provider and confirmed what I had suspected, which was that I had experienced what to me had seemed a rather rapid deterioration in the 2K range, the frequencies most important for hearing and understanding speech. Abby then took the time to confirm that I didn't have some other underlying health issues which might have contributed to the rapid loss. She then went through the charts carefully and thoroughly, explaining to my satisfaction what the numbers meant and what my options were. I had already received some information about the costs and benefits of the various types of aids from my healthcare provider and my independent research, so I felt I had plenty of information to go on. Abby was able to answer all my questions and her assessment and recommendations dovetailed nicely with what I had learned. I selected a model from the mid-range of options and went immediately to the next step, which was a trial fitting, setup, and trial period. I returned a week later and we talked about how it went, made some adjustments, and took impressions of my ear canals for custom-fit ear molds. These were ready a week later, and again I tried them out for about a week. The results where an improvement, but there was still a minor problem which Abby felt could be fixed with some alterations to the ear molds. It took a few visits to get things right, but with a little tweaking and attention from Abby, I have been extremely pleased with the results. I should add that, in least in my case, there there was never any additional charge for office visits or changes to the equipment, and everyone at Lesner -- including Dr. Lesner, Dr. Holauchock, and Britney in the office -- is a pleasure to work with. In my experience, the attention to detail and willingness to make certain that I was happy and comfortable with the hearing aids has made all the difference in the results.

    Lesner Hearing Center
    I knew Leslie Lesner was a great audiologist and that hearing aids would help me, but I didn?t realize how much.  After raising a son with a progressive hearing loss, I knew Leslie well as she was the best audiologist by far that we found to address my son?s hearing needs (he went to her for 10 -15  years before moving from the area), and knew she was the one I should turn to when I needed hearing aids.  I knew too that  hearing aids aren?t the problem but the solution.  My hearing began to decline about 3 years ago in my early 50s.  It is now a loss of 15 db at low frequencies and 35 db at higher frequencies.  At first, I didn?t feel I was missing that much.  This year I decided that I needed help.  I was struggling in meetings at work.  I figured I was missing 10% or so of the discussion and that was too much.  I was getting tired of asking for clarification or just hoping what I missed wasn?t important.  After years of advocacy for my son, I also knew that in order to ask others to make accommodations for your hearing loss, you really need to be taking the steps you can to mitigate the loss yourself.  I thought that with 25 years of experience with my son?s hearing loss (initially moderately severe ultimately profound) and 3 years or so of my own fairly mild hearing loss, that I really understood hearing loss pretty well.  Then I got my hearing aids and realized that I had been missing a lot more than I thought I was.  Sure I was missing the 10% of the discussion in its entirety, but I was also processing the other 90% more slowly as my brain tried to figure out exactly what was said while the discussion moved on.  I realized that some of what I thought was my brain slowing down was just my hearing holding me back.  What I thought was a new attention problem as I zoned out of discussions was me just getting too tired from trying hard to listen.  I?m even noticing the difference in what I?m hearing/processing in meetings with only 3-4 people.  The mumblers are still mumbling, but I?m doing a lot better hearing them.  My tinnitus (ringing in the ears) has appreciably declined as well.  I am thrilled with my new hearing aids.  For those of you worried about the look of hearing aids, I was surprised to find that, despite having a haircut with my ears showing, people do not notice my behind the ear hearing aids (even the few I?ve told who are looking for them) ? and these hearing aids can handle up to a severe loss.  I also thought I would feel older with hearing aids, but I feel younger as I?m not constantly reminded what has happened to my hearing with time.  My aids are so natural sounding, I forget I have them on. One?s specific hearing loss and hearing environments are unique, and Leslie is great about asking the challenges you face with your hearing aids, and tweaking your settings to get things right.  Take notes on what is challenging with the aids, she may well be able to address the issue ? she?s already made several adjustments with different programs for me as I have detailed situations where I need more or less volume.  She also gives a 60 day period during which they can be returned, while only required to give 30 days under state law.  Leslie is great and my only regret is not having gotten my hearing aids sooner.

    Lesner Hearing Center
    Leslie is the best audiologist I've had in my life. I've worn hearing aids for 26 years and Leslie was my audiologist for at least 10 years. Unfortunately, I moved away from the DC area and even after living in two states and visiting dozens of audiologists, I have not found anyone who is as good as Leslie. Her patience and knowledge enable her to deliver the highest standard. Fitting hearing aids to match the user's hearing loss and lifestyle is very complex and comes with many hard-to-describe adjustments to achieve optimal sound quality and hearing performance. Most audiologists have measured my hearing loss, programmed the hearing aid accordingly, but are helpless when I tell them it sounds "hollow," "muffled," whistles, or has any other issues. Leslie always knew how to go beyond her call of duty and get the most out of my hearing aids. Over the years, we purchased several hearing aids from Lesner Hearing Center and her prior employer. She was always very candid and helped us select the most appropriate hearing aid, since she is knowledgable about a wide variety of hearing aids for a wide-variety of hearing losses. Many of the audiologists I've seen since know a single model that accommodates a majority of hearing losses and encourage it for everyone who could use it, even if it's not the most appropriate for them. For more severe hearing losses, they're just reading from brochures. Leslie often had multiple models in stock, so I could try them on before purchasing. When my hearing aid needed servicing, she always gave me the same model as a loaner. No other audiologist has done that - they've either had no loaner or their loaner was a vastly inferior hearing aid from a different company.

    Lesner Hearing Center
    I've been going to Leslie for hearing aid services since 2009, and as someone who has had a hearing loss for over 20 years, I've been to numerous hearing aid vendors. Getting a hearing aid fitted is part art and part science, and I've been to people who just can't get it right. Let me tell you, Leslie gets it right! At my appointment, Leslie diligently worked to adjust my hearing aids so I could hear better in noisy restaurant settings. She even called the hearing aid manufacturer to ensure that she was taking advantage of all the hearing aid's features. In the end, I walked out with my hearing aid programmed so I could hear better in restaurants, and it's made quite a difference! I can hear a whole lot better! Leslie and her assistant, Becky, are always professional in performing tasks and are also very compassionate when it comes to helping me with various hearing aid issues. In addition, I will say that my experience is that they're very understand when it comes to finding ways to make hearing aid costs affordable. I will continue to use Leslie for my hearing aid services because, in my experience, it's rare to find someone with her combination of knowledge, talent, and compassion.
