About us

Nothing is more important than your

hearing health

As a former professional musician and a person who enjoys socializing, entertaining, and music, I’ve learned through my 25+ years in the field to listen to what the patient has to say.  Every patient has individual needs.  

 

I believe that empathy, professionalism, the warm & fuzzy office environment I have created and mostly the care I give to my patients as individuals, catering to their particular needs,  have been the keys to my success.

 

At Acoustic Hearing Center, our promise is to provide all patients with the utmost and dignified care on their journey to better hearing.

Dr. Hal Freed knows a lot about sound.

 

As the youngest of four children, whose parents were Holocaust survivors, Dr. Freed grew up in a very musical home with eclectic styles of music always surrounding him.

 

Dr. Freed started playing drums at age 11 and guitar at 14 years old.  As a teenager he played in different  musical bands around the New York City area with older musicians.  He left college to pursue a career in music and while doing so he appeared on MTV, Entertainment Tonight and in Billboard Magazine. He has worked with many  professional musicians and producers in the music industry such as Don Kirshner of the famed  “Don Kirchner‘s Rock Concerts,”  Cy Curnin of the band The Fixx  and MC Search of the famed Rap group 3RD Bass.

 

 

During his early 20’s Dr. Freed sadly lost both of his parents to Cancer and Heart Disease.

 

It was at that time that he knew he wanted a career change to the medical field in order to help others in and around his community. 

 

Dr. Freed received his Masters in Audiology from Queens College in 1996 and completed his Clinical Doctorate in Audiology from the University of Florida in spring 2000.

He is a fellow of the American Academy of Audiology and has served as an adjunct professor for Adelphi University and as a facilitator for the Doctorate program in Audiology for the University of Florida.
