Dr. Jennifer Elfert
NJ HA Disp Lic #904
Audiologists evaluate and treat hearing loss, tinnitus, balance, and related disorders. They also recommend and provide appropriate treatment, including hearing aids, audiologic rehabilitation, and hearing-assistive technology. As an audiologist certified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and American Academy of Audiology, Dr. Jennifer Elfert is licensed in both NJ and NY. Her areas of specialty include the assessment and treatment of hearing disorders and tinnitus. Dr. Jen’s educational background includes Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees from Hofstra University and a Doctor of Audiology Degree from the University of Florida. She started out practicing at a well-known ENT office on the Upper East Side. After moving to New Jersey, Dr. Jen began working in a private practice in Englewood, and later joined JFK’s Neuroscience Center in Edison, where she fine-tuned her skills evaluating balance disorders. From there, she joined Kimball Medical Center in Lakewood, where she stayed until opening her practice here in Howell, New Jersey.
Dr. Jen has a particular interest in the rehabilitation of hearing loss, a subject about which she taught for a number of years as an adjunct professor at Yeshiva University’s Stern College for Women in New York City. Other areas of interest include tinnitus and balance disorders.
Tinnitus has been a focus in her career since graduate school. There are very few professionals that take the time and understand the mechanism behind tinnitus and provide patients with ways to take control back from the tinnitus.
As a practicing audiologist, Dr. Jen takes special pride in listening to what her patients have to say. A positive doctor-patient relationship is a partnership, and when it comes to the treatment of hearing disorders, that makes all the difference.
