Thank you all for assisting in my efforts to provide better hearing to those in need. I have been fortunate to do what I love; to provide those with hearing loss the opportunity to benefit from hearing aids. I am eternally grateful to my incredible staff: Debbie Pantina, Gina Pinto, Dr. Maria Breen, Athena Roxas and Melissa Lohin.

I hope that by sharing the stories of those who suffer from hearing loss it will bring to light awareness of how hearing aids can greatly improve the quality of life of so many…

With that being said I am awarding BOTH Debbie Freer and Daniel Vitello each a free set of hearing aids.

It is evident by our overwhelming number of votes that thousands of people supported Debbie Freer and Daniel Vitello. I know this is a contest and there is only supposed to be one winner; however, I cannot go to sleep tonight knowing how hard so many people have worked to support their “candidates”.

Thankfully, this is not politics and in a world where there is so much divisiveness I have the opportunity to bring two “teams” together to celebrate kindness and compassion.

I will be in contact with you both tomorrow to personally make arrangements. Thank you to all of our contest participants who will each receive a $1,000 gift certificate towards a pair of hearing aids.

Above all, thank you to all my patients who continue to support me and my practice which enables me to continue to give back to the community.

A happy and healthy holiday to all!!
