Up to a few years ago my husband was resistant to wear hearing aides but realized he needed help hearing & engaging in social settings especially when getting together with others, at the theatre, or while traveling. Dr. Melissa Yunes evaluated his hearing & made recommendations. She was patient, thorough, & very knowledgeable. We saw her again recently where she explained the benefits of the newer technology. He is very excited & these are easy to use.

For quite a while, I had been debating w myself over whether to have my hearing checked (because, ya know, old) and finally pulled the trigger in early 2020. I figured that as I approached 60 (#okboomer) and after countless concerts and countless hours playing music live (yes, still), it was a good idea to get some kind of baseline. By an actual professional. (i.e., not just rely on the fact that I can't hear the rest of my mumbling family {grin}) Good news: my family actually WERE MUMBLING! Joking aside tho, I got a great report and relative to my age, apparently I'm in pretty solid shape. So not only can I lord it over my family that I am NOT going deaf, but I have a sense of where I stand in the bigger picture, what to be on the lookout for, and what/when to do next. All of this was due to the fantastic experience I had at Hearing Assoc of NoVa with Dr. Kelsey Trinka. Kelsey explained everything fully, made me feel very confident in her presentation of what she would do during the tests and the same with her explanation of my results, and had a great bed-side, ummm, soundproof booth-side manner. If you have been thinking about getting a check-up, do yourself a favor and do it. So worth the time and investment. (Bonus: it was completely covered by my plan.)

The entire experience was seamless, personable, professional and comfortable. Dr. G was thorough in her testing and explanation of what she could see. While no one to hear it, it's positive to have confirmation of whether there's an issue or not. Not to mention I now have a doctor's affirmation to say that I actually didn't hear what someone said instead of having the people thinking I'm ignoring them, esp the misses. If you are having any concern with your hearing, I would highly recommend you seek out HANV and especially Dr. Gina Crovato for a personal and professional consultation (that's not to say the other doctors aren't as good, she's just the one I saw. I'm sure they are all exceptional!!). 5 stars, 2 thumbs up and 2 ears open (partially hearing 😉 )!

Hearing Associates of Northern Virginia is an amazing practice: the kindest people and most competent & complete audiology practice that I have visited in 5 years of taking my now 89-year old mother for hearing tests in Pennsylvania, Florida and Maryland. On my first visit, I had stopped to pick up rechargeable hearing aid batteries after my Mom moved to Baltimore. The receptionist recognized that my Mom should not need repacement batteries so soon, and called on Dr. Crovato to consult with me. Dr. Crovato advised me to bring the hearing aids in to replace faulty battery doors; I did that & the problem of battery draining was resolved. I also brougt my Mom to see Dr. Kelsey Trinka, who was helpful beyond words in resolving some conflicting information in the hearing aid warranty, and found that the repair warranty extended 6 months longer than we thought. She updated the software on more than one occasion and made adjustments to ensure that my mother could hear as well as possible. She was very kind & patient with my Mom, which I really appreciated. What I have learned from dealing with my Mom's hearing issues & hearing aids is that anyone can sell you a pair of hearing aids; however, not everyone has the training and interest to make sure that they are programmed correctly at the outset, and then ensures support for adjustments as one gets used to the hearing aids. Hearing Associates of Northern Virginia treated any issues with a sense of urgency that we did not experience with some other audiology practices. They also have supplies on hand at fair prices. I live in Arlington and would highly recommend this practice to anyone living in the greater metropolitan area. A special thanks goes to Dr. Trinka for all of her help.
Dr. Crovato is amazing, and has come up with a creative solution to my hearing problem. I am thrilled with the outcome.

It is with the highest confidence and greatest pleasure that I recommend Hearing Associates of Northern Virginia to anyone in the area looking for a trustworthy, qualified expert to test their hearing and help them find appropriate solutions. Dr. Crovato and Dr. Yunes are respectful, patient and truly understand the challenges of being hearing impaired. They are knowledgeable about the technology available as well as the latest research in hearing loss. Both doctors have helped me sort through features and benefits to determine the best hearing solutions to meet my needs. Dr. Crovato has been my audiologist and that of my 93-year-old mother since 2012. I couldn’t be more satisfied with the care, kindness and respect she has shown my mom. Dr. Crovato has been an invaluable resource for both of us. Her humor and patience have made our visits a pleasure, and her integrity gives us confidence in our choices.

Great experience! Dr. Crovato made custom ear plugs for each of my three children to help protect their hearing at loud concerts/events. They were able to chose personalized colors and since they are so well designed, the kids can put them in and take them out by themselves. Dr. Crovato was amazing interacting with the kids and they absolutely love their new ear plugs for all the summer concerts we attend! They even ask to wear them when they don't have to. Highly recommend Hearing Associates of Northern Virginia!!

Why Get Your Hearing Tested?

As one of your main senses, your hearing health can tell you a story about your overall health. Hearing loss can be an early indicator of many health conditions, like diabetes and circulation conditions. Since hearing loss can be gradual, it is important to get your hearing evaluated regularly, like you do with your eyes or teeth.

Your hearing pathway starts at your ears and ends at your brain. When sounds reach the inner ear, they are converted into a signal that is sent to the brain. So, your hearing health can directly impact your brain health. Studies have consistently shown how hearing loss correlates to cognitive decline and dementia. And people with hearing loss are at higher risk of mental health conditions, like depression. Healthy hearing = healthy brain.

Hearing loss can be very isolating; if you cannot hear what people are saying, then it is very difficult to maintain conversations and if you cannot maintain conversations, then your relationship with loved ones can suffer.

Did you know that certain medications can harm your hearing health? And this includes common over-the-counter medications and antibiotics. Typically, we are told of potential side-effects but no one thinks that medications could cause hearing loss.  

It has been shown that someone with hearing loss who ignores their condition can see up to a 26% increase in their healthcare costs after just 2 years. This is because people experience a variety of adverse health effects due to their hearing health, such as falls or other sources of injury.
