“I travel from Richmond Virginia to the Lesner Hearing Center in Alexandria, Virginia for my hearing care needs. I am single sided deaf due to an acoustic neuroma. I was referred to Lesner Hearing by a hearing aid manufacturer. At Lesner Hearing I was able to evaluate two very different and competing hearing technologies. Both hearing systems were offered enthusiastically with no favoritism or bias. Doctor Holauchock performed a thorough hearing examination and fittings. I felt she had an excellent knowledge of the technology and most importantly the programming software. During the fitting process she was very understanding and patient and I never felt pressured or rushed.
I very much prefer the relaxed, private practice atmosphere over the clinical setting or big box retailers. I feel I have received excellent care and value for my investment at Lesner Hearing Center.” R.R 9/6/16
“My husband and friends were tired of me saying "what?" repeatedly during every conversation.  I finally agreed to get new hearing aids.  The Lesner Hearing Center was recommended to me by one of their patients.  Doctors Lesner and Holauchock have been working with me to maximize my experience with new hearing aids.  After a thorough interview about my hearing concerns and a hearing exam, they tried two different style hearing aids for me.  They have continued to follow up with answers to my questions and appropriate adjustments to the computer settings for my hearing aids.  Throughout this process, they have been friendly, understanding and completely professional.  I would not hesitate to recommend them to my friends who have hearing issues.” WBF 8/30/16
“I want to let you know how pleased I am with my experience at Lesner Hearing Center with Dr. Abby Holauchock.  I have worn hearing aids for a number of years and I was anxious to upgrade my hearing aids to the latest technology on the market.  Also, I wanted to find the brand of hearing aids that would work best for my particular hearing loss, as well as the best for my lifestyle.  
I found the perfect answer in Lesner Hearing Center.  I made an appointment with Dr. Abby and from the very first visit, I could see her total commitment to addressing all my hearing loss concerns.  She worked with me to find the brand of hearing aids that was  best for me.  Over the next several weeks, she asked about the different hearing environments that I had been exposed to such as restaurants, the theater, social gatherings, watching television, etc. and whether I was pleased or experienced any difficulties hearing in each environment.  Where necessary, she made adjustments to the hearing aids to ensure that the hearing aids fit my needs.  Dr. Abby was truly dedicated to finding the best solutions for me.
I am very happy I chose Lesner Hearing Center and look forward to having Dr. Abby take care of my hearing needs for years to come.” S. Pastura 2016
“I knew several years ago that I needed to get hearing aids but kept putting it off because I didn’t know where to go and was intimidated by the process.  I am so happy that I found the Lesner Hearing Center.  Dr. Abby Holauchock really listened to me and chose hearing aids that would best address my individual type of hearing loss.  I was satisfied after the first fitting but know that she would have worked with me as long as it took to get a solution.   I show my new hearing aids off to everyone and am comfortable highly recommending Lesner Hearing Center.” N. Johnson 2016
“If you are looking for a great audiologist, look no further than the Lesner Hearing Center. I was recently tested and fitted with hearing aids by Dr. Abby, who is wonderful. She explained every step of the process, presented all of my options and made sure I was comfortable after every adjustment. This is an office that puts customer service first. I highly recommend this practice!” B. Moorman , 2015
“I am glad I chose the right place to procure my hearing aids after going through so many advertisements. Their attention to get it to my satisfaction has been great. The whole staff who have attended to me has been kind and courteous. I wish others who want to hear well read what I have stated.” D.Chellaraj, 2015

“Very extensive & professional evaluation & advice. Abby insisted I try several aids before selecting the best model for me. Very impressive process with low sales pressure.” M. Nusbaum 2015
“Dr. Leslie Lesner, whom I have been going to for 1 1/2 years, is very dedicated and professional. She always works diligently to see that my hearing aids are working to their best. She is unique in her field, way beyond any you will find. Her staff is tops too.” K. Paul 2015
“Ten years ago I was facilitating a Donors workshop in one of the regional capitals in Ethiopia. I was very comfortable during the whole process until the power was out. When participants continued to speak without a mic I was completely lost. That was when I found out that I had a hearing problem. From then on I struggled to listen to persons when they speak in a low voice. I came to the US three years ago. After a while I secured jobs which mainly engage me to talk to people. The last three years was very difficult for me since I miss much of what people are telling me. I saw a doctor at Kaiser Permanente who advised me to see a hearing specialist. I chose Lesner Hearing center after searching for such centers on line. I did not believe that I would again be part of the human community without being embarrassed or without struggling to catch what I am being told. After I was treated in a very cordial way at Lesner hearing center I now am back to my old self with increased confidence and vitality. I have no words to express my deepest gratitude to Doctors and staff of Lesner Hearing center. I find it to be too modest to say Thank you because they deserve more. Yet it is also proper to say Thank you very much indeed. Again I thank you all for your wonderful treatment and unreserved gift. Thank you” H.Y., 2014
“The hearing aids that you tailored for my hearing needs have made my life much richer. I can now engage successfully in group conversations in noisy environments such as crowded restaurants and large house parties, whereas before wearing your aids the best I could do was smile and remain quiet, having comprehended little of the conversation and not wanting to make a fool of myself with a totally inappropriate response. Every aspect of day-to-day living has improved, for examples, music is delightfully richer, sounds not heard in years, such as streams bubbling, birds chirping and rustling leaves now come through loud and clear. I am very grateful for your special attention to details and your goal of maximizing the power of my new hearing aids. You were a pleasure to work with.” J.F., 2011
“Although I have only known you for a few month out of my 87 years and I respect you for your professional expertise, I like to think of you as a friend. When I first started to think about getting some help for my hearing problem all of my frinds began telling me all of the bad experience they had with their aids. They were too noisy or they hurt, or they were ugly. I thought I would be going through all the trouble that I have had for the last thirty years with doctors, dentist, and hospitals. Instead, I found two friends, and both are Audiologists. As a result I have two hearing aids that are perfect in every way.” D.S. 2009
“Leslie has an in-depth knowledge of the state of the art hearing aids and not only recommends the right product for her patients but is also sensitive to the financial aspects. I am very impressed by her educational background. I highly recommend her practice to anyone who is in need of her services. You will not be disappointed.” S.M. 2014
Much to my surprise, even on the first day I wore my hearing aids I felt relief and some exhilaration because I could hear so well. Not only that, but the little devices in my ear were very comfortable and I hardly knew they were there! Lesner Hearing staff make are efficient and caring. Jennifer M., Falls Church, VA
Dear Leslie:
Although I have only known you for a few months out of my 87 years and I respect you for your professional expertise, I like to think of you as a friend. When I first started to think about getting some help for my hearing problem all my friends and neighbors began telling all of the bad experiences they had with their aids. They were too noisy or they hurt, or they were ugly. I thought I would be going through all the troubles that I have had for the last thirty years with doctors, dentists, and hospitals. Instead I found two friends, and both are Audiologists. As a result I have two Hearing Aids that are perfect in every way. So I say Thanks to both of you. Sincerely yours

Dear Dr. Lesner, Thank you for the excellent Audiologist work you have provided me with over the past year. I really had no idea what I was missing out on in my day to day life until I came to you. You have helped me tremendously by taking the time to fit me with hearing aids that fit me personally. You did this with professionalism and expertise. You gave me honest advice, and you always took care that I was comfortable during each visit. Your office staff was also very friendly and professional. I will be very happy to recommend you to others. Sincerely,

Visiting the Lesner Hearing Center is like visiting a family friend. From the moment you walk into the office with its warm, friendly decor,and serene art work, and are greeted by a friendly "Hello, how are you?" from Becky; to sitting down with Leslie for you appointment; it is a relaxing experience.
Leslie has an indepth knowledge of the state of the art hearing aids and not only recommends the right product for her patients but is sensitive to the financial aspects also. I am very impressed by her educational background and that she is pursuing her Doctor of Audiology degree from the School of Audiology at Pennsylvania College of Optometry.
I highly recommend her practice to anyone who is in need of her services. You will not be disappointed. Suzanne S.

Dear Dr. Lesner
The Siemens hearing aids that you tailored for my hearing needs have made my life much richer.

You were a pleasure to work with. Many thanks,Jay S. F.
Dear Leslie,
Here is what I want to say about my experience of getting and wearing hearing aids.
Much to my surprise, even on the first day I wore my hearing aids I felt relief and some exhilaration because I could hear so well. Not only that, but the little devices in my ear were very comfortable and I hardly knew they were there! Lesner Hearing staff are efficient and caring. J.M.
Dr. Lesner is knowledgeable, thorough, compassionate. I've known for many years that a hearing aid would make a real difference for me (I thought I needed only 1). But the difference these have made is nothing short of miraculous. In the 3 weeks since I got them, it's been virtually a whole new world for me.
I've had depressive tendencies for as long as I can remember, sometimes crossing beyond just tendencies. So I'm not really sure what "normal" feels like. Since receiving these hearing aids, I've been feeling what I'd imagine "normal" is like!
On Tuesday night I went to a networking event at a typical, loud restaurant bar. In the past, I could barely communicate at such events. I would have to stand as close as possible to be able to hear what others were saying, keep my "good" ear angled toward their mouths, and still be guessing at much of what was said. And I couldn't look people in the face while trying to maintain a conversation.??
Well, Tues. night was simply astonishing. I could hear everyone clear as a bell, even voices 10 feet or more away. I could carry on a reasonable conversation! Robin C. 10/30/16
