WHAT OUR PATIENTS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT US.

  • “What a great experience. I needed to learn about my hearing issues and whether or not I'd need a hearing aid. Had a total assessment. Dr. Marino was thoughtful, considerate, totally knowledgeable and professional. She demonstrated and explained her hearing aids. No pressure; just information. Overall an excellent experience PLUS a friendly staff. Can't say enough good things.”
    Lorna M.
  • “This is the second time that I have purchased hearing aids from the Fairfax Hearing Center. Doctor Marino has always been very helpful and took a great deal of time explaining the options to find the best product for my needs. Based on my personal experience, I highly recommend Dr. Marino and the Fairfax Hearing Center. Great job!”
    Dale W.
  • “I am relatively new to the FHC, but have been very pleased with Dr. Carter's interventions. She is knowledgeable and efficient and is a good teacher regarding my hearing aid that is not one promoted by FHC. (I purchased it through a previous audiologist and needed a refresher on it's settings.)”
    Carole P.
  • “I love the professional experience I receive each time I interact with the staff. I feel like one of the family. I am so thankful to have found this office to partner with me on my hearing health. ”
    Michelle T.
  • “My experience at Fairfax Center has been extraordinary. Dr. Marino is caring, thorough, an excellent communicator, and extremely current in audio technology. When a new aid became available she took me through the features and benefits and set me up perfectly. There have been times where I needed an adjustment and if Dr. Marino was not available that day, Dr. Carter stepped in and treated me like I was her own patient. The entire experience is superb. ”
    Wayne V.
  • “I have had extremely positive experiences with first Dr. Marino and Dr. Carter. They always make both my husband and me feel valued as long time clients. We have highly recommended their services throughout the years to friends. They always take care of our needs, from providing us the life changing experience of first being able to hear so much better when we first received our hearing aids to troubleshooting any issues that need resolving to providing supplies, maintenance, and hearing checkups. We have been with Dr.Marino for nearly ten years. The staff is unfailingly helpful and friendly. We woud highly recommend their clinic. ”
    Julia A.
  • “Great service. Always attentive, responsive, and meeting my needs. Recently my left hearing aid stopped working. I dropped in during walk-in hours and the problem was repaired in less than five minutes. When I called about it the day before, I received a prompt response by phone, and directly from the doctor. Great place!”
    Gary D.
  • “Dr. Marino listened to my concerns and took time to make sure I had a complete hearing test and then listed all of my options. I am happy with my new hearing and credit her for her expertise and good advice. I felt cared about as a patient! I would highly recommend Dr. Marino and Fairfax Hearing Center. ”
    Barbra S.
  • “I got excellent service. Very professional and friendly, if you have any questions about your hearing or lack of it this is the place to go. The Doctor answered all my questions; I would recommend them to anyone in need.”

    Kathleen C.
  • “Dr. Marino is very helpful and Fair. I do and will continue to visit her for all of my hearing issues. I have other options such as the VA, but I prefer her expertise.”
