See what people are saying about Garden State Hearing & Balance Center.

  • “I recently submitted an essay for a contest on hearing loss sponsored by Garden State Hearing in Toms River. I was fortunate to win a free hearing aid. I anticipated a high-pressured sales pitch to purchase an additional hearing aid but was pleasantly surprised with the helpful and courteous attention given by Dr. Izzy Kirsh and his staff. For those of you, like myself, who procrastinate finding out what you’ve been missing — my hearing aid has made a dramatic change not only in my hearing but in my life!”

    Anna S.

  • “I have been a patient of yours for over six years and I wanted to let you know how happy I am that I picked you as my hearing specialist. I have only experienced great service in coming to the office for a checkup or dealing with your staff over the phone. There is always a warm, professional atmosphere and a courteous manner at the Garden State Hearing Center. I appreciate your diligence in checking my status and satisfaction with my hearing devices. I thank you and your staff for always keeping the patient at the center of your focus. I have sent many people to you and they always say thank you to me. Keep up the great work!”

    Betty G.

  • “To the staff at Garden State Hearing and Balance — I wish to give my heartfelt thanks to each of you for your kindness and the ability to hear again. I am so happy that I was able to obtain hearing aids through your contest giveaway. I can now hear the noise my feet make when I walk on my tile floor. I appreciate everything you have done for me. You have made this a wonderful experience which I will always remember!”

    D.B., Holiday Hearing Aid Contest Winner

  • “Dr. Izzy, words cannot express my gratitude for your kindness and compassion. So far I am loving my new aids and have held a record number of phone calls in the past few days. A thank you card seems completely inadequate but I want you to know I am grateful!”


  • “Please accept a most sincere thank you for your thoughtfulness. Thank you for a lovely luncheon at Holiday Inn today. We do appreciate your thoughtfulness! I’m sorry I did not win any of the prizes today — but just being under the care of you and your staff already puts me in 'The Winner’s Circle!'

    Kay & Bill

  • “Dr. Richards, [this is a photo of the] Christening service in Rhode Island for my great-grandson. His dress was made by his mother, her mother, and I — everyone in my family has been Christened wearing it. It was the Holiest thing in the church. What was more important is that your help enabled me to hear every word that was said. Thank you.”


  • "Dr. Rennert, I wanted to take a moment to say thank you again for the courtesies you extended to my mother and her hearing aid problems. Your office will be the first I ever recommend, or use, for any future hearing problems. Thank you again for your kindness.”


  • “Perhaps from long service in government, I ended up testing three different dispensers of Oticon hearing products. I had chosen Oticon on the recommendation of a professional acquaintance. My choice of Dr. Kirsh was, indeed, fortuitous. Friendly assistance, professionalism, and down-to-earth advice are talents that set him above all others I had seen.”
