Learn About County Hearing and Balance and the Staff

The Doctors of Audiology at County Hearing and Balance provide diagnostic services for a variety of problems. We have over 41 years of experience. We offer evaluation and treatment for hearing loss, tinnitus, dizziness and balance problems, and other listening disorders. For most patients, these services are covered by health insurance.

When hearing aids are needed, we offer a full range of products from several of the leading manufacturers in the industry. We are the largest provider of the Resound Linx hearing instrument, which is the first instrument that connects directly to the iPhone and other Apple devices. We will help you find the hearing instrument that is best suited to your needs and fits your budget. You will be able to wear the hearing aid before purchasing to ensure that it is the right fit for you.

We begin with a free consultation and diagnostic testing to identify the most appropriate treatment options for your unique needs. We understand the crucial role that your hearing plays in your daily life and look forward to helping you find the right solution.

Erin Stankiewicz, Au.D.

Given the nature of a family business, Dr. Erin Worgul Stankiewicz had the unique opportunity to volunteer and become acquainted with County Hearing and Balance long before she could even say the word "Audiologist." Pursuing the field of Audiology was an obvious decision and she officially began her career with County Hearing and Balance in May of 2004 after graduation from the University of Connecticut with her Master of Audiology degree and subsequently her Doctor of Audiology degree from Salus University in Philadelphia, PA.

Dr. Stankiewicz specializes in adult and pediatric diagnostic audiometry, as well as aural rehabilitation counseling combined with hearing aid fittings for all ages and degrees of hearing loss. Many of her patients have been referred from others, simply based on the care and compassion she shows to her patients.

Dr. Stankiewicz is a board-certified Audiologist, a founding member of the Connecticut Academy of Audiology and is a fellow of the American Academy of Audiology. When not working, she enjoys sailing and traveling to warm climates.
