Our Audiologists

Although Dr. Heiman and Dr. Gumina have many professional accomplishments, the one in which they take the most pride is the esteem of their patients. Many patients have reported that they were thrilled that they came here with their hearing needs. We have been so honored that so many of our patients have enthusiastically recommended our audiologists to others. This, above any other professional accomplishment, is our greatest source of satisfaction.
