Ridgewood Hearing Center
My experience with Ridgewood Hearing Center was life-changing. I was suffering from tinnitus but was not a patient of Dr. Aretsky. I left a vm message over the weekend asking for an appointment for an examination. The wonderful manager (Andrea?) called me early Mon. morning with the lucky news that a patient cancellation offered an opportunity for me to be examined by Dr. Aretsky. Dr. Aretsky was amazing! I prayed that the tinnitus was not caused by damage to my inner ear and that it was caused by something treatable, like a TMJ disorder. In addition to Dr. Aretsky being a brilliant physician, he’s a sort of a medical detective and by asking various questions, was able to determine that the tinnitus was caused by a TMJ issue and that my ears were healthy. My prayer was answered! Dr. Aretsky responded to my glee by shaking my hand, twice. He provided guidelines on alleviating the TMJ issues. A subsequent treatment by a TMJ physical therapist pinpointed the TMJ-tinnitus connections. Words cannot express my gratitude to Dr. Aretsky and Andrea for the compassion and humanity they showed me and for giving me a new lease on life.
