Two and 1/2 years ago, I discovered that I was having some hearing issues. I went online to look for a hearing doctor. I found Northern Associates of Northern Virgina and decided to give them a try. It turned out to be such a great decision. I went in and saw Dr. Kelsy Trinka who completed the examination along with a hearing test. After the test, Dr. Trinka discovered and determine the level of my hearing loss/condition. She provided a few choices of hearing aids which I chose one of them. She ordered them and programmed them to my specific hearing condition. It has made a huge difference in my life ever since. I have returned once a year to re-test and to update the programming of the hearing devices. I have to say that this has been life-changing decision for me. It has made a tremendous difference in my hearing ability, thus making me much more effective at work as well as enjoying my social life. Thank you so much to Hearing Associates of Northern Virginia and more importantly, thank you so much to Dr. Trinka! Best Regards....tony,

Great experience! Dr Yunes was very helpful and worked with me to find cost-effective audio equipment that worked with my wife’s hearing aids. She can now hear the TV clearly while I’m listening through the speakers. No more closed captions!

I sent my step-dad to this office and it was very welcoming! The practice did such a good job caring for him. They definitely maintained high quality and professional care to him and to our family. Thank you.

I've had 3 family members tentative to get hearing checked go to Dr. Yunes and came out of their appointments extremely happy with her explanation of the process and assessment. Two of them were prescribed hearing aids as well which they are very happy with. My whole family is thankful they went to this practice:).

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 ;) )!

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!!

My oldest was terrified of going to the doctor for her ears but Dr. Gina put her at such ease! She did great! We also had custom ear plugs made for both of our kids and they work wonderful! Highly recommend this practice!
