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). My clinical knowledge was expanded through 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 process for hearing loss through a unique diagnostic and counseling process. I also had the opportunity to assist a team of ENT physicians through the diagnostic and fitting process for candidates of cochlear implantation. In addition, I had the opportunity to educate hundreds of patients a week about the importance of hearing healthcare through the hospital’s screening program. In addition to my studies, I completed a research proposal during my studies that examined the causation of tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and the associations it may or may not have with the brain.
Unbeknownst to me, I gradually developed a permanent slight hearing loss, prior to college, through 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 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 appropriate 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.
