Dr. Thomas Recher, Au.D.

I received my doctorate of Audiology through Hofstra University’s Long Island Audiology Consortium (affiliated with Adelphi & St. John’s University). I gained experience in a variety of settings including a large hospital in Brooklyn, New York. This rotation taught me how to lead patients of all ages through the discovery and remediation of hearing loss with a unique diagnostic and counseling process. I also had the opportunity to assist a team of ENT physicians in the diagnostic and fitting process of cochlear implant candidates. Through the hospitals screening program, I am able to educate hundreds of patients each week about the importance of hearing healthcare. I also completed a research proposal during my studies that examined the causes of tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and its associations with the brain.

Although I didn’t know it at the time, I gradually developed a permanent slight hearing loss—prior to college—due to noise exposure from musical instruments. I was told by others that, “those instruments can be loud”, but I did not fully understand the effects of cumulative noise exposure. What I needed was education on hearing conservation.

Now at Mid Island Audiology

Now as an Audiologist, it is my mission to empower others with this knowledge, as well as improve the quality of people’s lives and relationships by facilitating better hearing and communication. I am qualified to provide amplification solutions for patients of all ages.

I am a fellow of the American Academy of Audiology as well as an associate of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. My other passions include being an active contributor in my community and church, enjoying my family and friends, and songwriting. I love to experience the outdoors through activities such as mountain biking, golf, running, and snowboarding.

My specialties include:

  • Clinical diagnostic audiology (hearing & balance testing)
  • Counseling
  • Hearing aid dispensing
  • Hearing rehabilitation
  • Hearing conservation
