I am now 72 years old. I have been seeing Dr. Kay regarding my ears and hearing for quite a long time. I have found him to be an effective, sympathetic, forward-looking, and extremely competent doctor. At first, the task was simply to periodically clean the wax out of my ears. Then, when he felt the time was right, he suggested I take a hearing test. I did that and it produced a baseline that was useful later. Each year I had the same test, and then reviewed the results with Dr. Kay. For awhile the results were steady year-to-year however in recent years we began to see some decline.
I dreaded the idea of needing hearing aids. In retrospect, this was partially because it was a surrender to the inevitable transition to getting older. I was concerned that it would signal to others that I was getting older, and was possibly not as competent as before. Dr. Kay understood my feelings and never pushed me to go beyond my comfort zone on the topic. Finally, I reached the point where it was time to get the hearing aids. He recommended the ReSound product.
I have been very happy with ReSound hearing aids. My hearing has improved by using them. The care and maintenance is not an unreasonable burden and they are inconspicuous. No one has ever said anything that would indicate they even noticed them, although some
people my own age are inclined to compare them with their own choices. I came out thinking that hearing aids are unfairly stigmatized in the minds of many people. The advantages far outweigh the disadvantages. Hopefully others will take advantage of what I have learned.

I have had hearing issues my whole life, and have been to countless doctors. No one did anything except say there was nothing we could do. Until I was sent to Dr. Rajool Dave, she changed my life! At first I thought well here we go again, but not this time. Rajool thought that I would be a good candidate for a hearing aid. I was excited to finally try something other than nothing. The first time she turned it on it was magical. She did not just stop here. We tried many varieties of aids and different settings to make sure it was right. Rajool had flexible hours and saw me weekly to check my progress. The experience has been fabulous. Thanks to Rajool I can hear!

I have been struggling with hearing loss in the left ear for the past 10 to 15 years, due to nerve damage. I thought that I would never hear properly again and would just have to suffer with this the rest of my life. My life changed around completely when my neighbor told me about Dr. Scott Kay. Dr Kay told me that I could get back up to 85% of my hearing in the left ear with a hearing aid. His wonderful audiologist, Dr. Rajool Dave, fitted me for an Oticon hearing aid, right before thanksgiving. I cried when she put the hearing aid in. For the first time in years I could hear in stereo! Anyone who is considering a hearing aid please do it! You really need to hear what you are missing. I adjusted very quickly to my new “personal communication assistant” to the point that I forget that I am wearing it. It is easy to clean and battery changes are a snap. No one even knows that I’m wearing a hearing aid unless I tell them. Not that it matters. Another “bonus” of having the hearing aids is that I do not notice the tinnitus when I am wearing them. Now if I could only wear them to bed…… I cannot thank Dr. Kay, Dr Dave, and their wonderful staff enough.

My wife Pat and I want to commend Princeton Otolaryngology Associates, Dr. Rajool Dave, and her audiology staff for the excellent care she has provided us. It has made a real difference in our lives. Besides being highly professional and effective, Dr. Dave is caring and dedicated to the well being of her patients. It is always a pleasure to be with her.
