Her career progressed to a hospital setting where she was responsible for complete audiological evaluations for head start children as well as the inpatients at the facility. She first began working with an Otolaryngologist in 1988 and enjoys the daily challenges and diverse clientele this work environment provides.

“As a Dispensing Audiologist who has been in the field for almost 30 years, my main priority and concern is that of the hearing impaired patient. Working closely with our Otolaryngologists allows us to offer patients complete quality care. We provide all options to our patients that will best suit their needs without any pressure to purchase. It is our office priority that each and every one of our patients leaves the office with the best possible hearing solution that we can provide for them.”
“Hearing loss is complicated and varies from patient to patient. All different types of hearing loss cannot be accommodated with the same hearing aids and achieve the same success. Therefore, all the latest and newest technologies are researched so I can offer as many possible solutions for my patients needs.”
Dr. Szabo is licensed to practice audiology and dispense hearing aids in both New Jersey and New York. She holds her certificate of Clinical Competence from The American Speech and Hearing Association. She is currently a member of ASHA and is a fellow of the American Academy of Audiology.
