Our Hearing Professionals
Having worked along side each other for the past 15 years, we have brought our skills and experience together to form Sound Audiology.
Dr. Villanueva has spent the majority of her Audiology career working in the Hospital setting as a Dispensing Audiologist. Five years ago, Dr. Villanueva founded her own successful private practice “Manhattan Avenue Hearing Aids”, which has provided expert and personlized hearing heath care to the people of Manhattan and Brooklyn.
Dr. Rubino has worked in the ENT setting for the majority of her Audiological career. Six years ago, Dr. Rubino created the hearing aid dispensary at Mineola ENT. Devoting all her time since then to dispensing and fitting hearing aids, she is an expert at difficult to fit cases.
Together, we have formed Sound Audiology to bring the South Shore of Long Island our expert skills and caring nature. Being both mothers, and having aging parents with hearing loss, we promise to bring to you a patient and understanding approach to hearing loss, hearing aids and the fitting process. We treat our patients like they are family. We guarentee you will look forward to your visits with us as much as we look forward to seeing you!
