More

Dr. Zhanneta Shapiro received her Masters of Science from Brooklyn College in 2005 and completed her Doctorate of Audiology from Florida University in May 2008. Her graduate training was in various hospitals in the tri-state area and a residency period completed at Ear Nose and Throat Associates of New York. Dr. Shapiro worked for 14 months at Hear USA conducting hearing aid evaluation, diagnosing hearing loss and dispensing of amplification for children and adults. She has utilized all the latest technology on everyday bases, to fit hearing aids in an objective manner for optimal communication potential. She started a group aural rehabilitation program at that center, providing support for those with hearing loss and their families. For the past 5 years Dr. Zhanneta Shapiro has been a part of the NYU Langone Medical Center, where she was originally brought on for the purpose of the expansion of pediatric amplification services. Dr. Shapiro brought not only her expertise but a philosophy- counseling and education about hearing health. Through a family centered approach and supportive counseling Dr. Shapiro and her colleagues watched the center grow as she continuously helped the children reach their full communicative potential through a successful amplification process. Currently Dr. Shapiro is an adjunct Professor at the CUNY Graduate Center on the Brooklyn College campus, supervising the audiology clinic and providing guidance to doctoral level audiology students.

In mid 2012, Dr Shapiro joined forces with Dr. Stella Fulman, a long time friend, and the two audiologists founded Audiology Island. By bringing all the diagnostic experience from a top hospital in NY and a strong belief in the importance of patient education Dr. Shapiro can now devote more time and attention to her patients’ needs. She continues to play an important role in the life of her already established patients and is proud to bring the same gold standard of care to the wonderful borough of Staten Island.

Review Audiology Island
Anonymous
Anonymous 05 December 2018

Everyone at Audiology Island are all very professional and patient with their patients. they educated me aas well as trained me as to how to place the hearing aids and set them so that they are pretty much visible to site. When i was having problems inserting them in my ears they were very patient with me until i was able to grasp it. everyone there are all hands on with the training and make you feel like you have been going to them forever. I love the idea that you make an appointment and they keep it no waiting long times to see the Audiologist Stella Fulman. She is great. Thank You Stella for making my hearing so much better. I hear things now i have not been able to hear for a very long time. I no longer have to say what when people talk to me or like Stella Fulman said to me i must have been a very good lip reader. she is probably right. I can hear clearly now...

The office was clean and organized. The staff at the front desk were pleasant and helped us check in right away. My family and I did not wait long at all to see the doctor. The appointment was for my one year old son. The Dr. was very friendly and was able to answer all my questions. She worked well with my young son and made sure she worked quickly. Overall, we had an excellent experience.

Review of Stella Fulman, AuD

I was not pleased with the evaluation. I indicated I was there for a second opinion of pervious testing for my son. I spent a total of 10 minutes with the audiologist and heard approximately eight sounds in the booth when they announced my son's hearing was perfect. I've been having him tested for close to a year now in NYC and the evals there are a minimum of an hour with an entire battery of tests. Once I voiced my concern at the lack of testing, the audiologist was quick to pull out an additional apparatus but it was almost as if to appease me.

This is my second year with these practitioners.I generally see Dr. Fulman for my appointments. She is competent and friendly. I am wearing Oticon OPN1s hearing aids. I have had numerous problems with their connectivity, they randomly re boot throughout the day. Dr Fulman said that this HA has had this problem. During my yearly hearing test in January Dr. Fulman adjusted my Script and did a firmware update which as of this writing seems to correct the problem. They will open a new location in the Charleston shopping complex this spring which will be more convenient to visit for me. I strongly recommend this practice for anyone having a hearing problem.

The staff were professional, courteous and kind. The woman who administered the test was very patient and put my daughter at ease, as she was nervous and is very shy. It is not easy when your child has hearing loss, and everyone at Audiology Island answered my endless questions, put my daughter at ease, and made me very happy that I chose their place. I highly recommend Audiology Island.

Service was performed in a pefessionsl manner. Adjustments made to my aids improved the overall performance of my aids. It was a very calming experience. Stella Fulman was delightfully pleasant and easy to work with. For my next two appointments 1- I would like to adjust the tone, because sounds from high pitch or treble Tone voices seem tiny to me when using aid, as compared to when I take off the aid and use the stereo volume turned up. 2- please lower the feed back from my left aid, right aid is fine, without lost of present hearing performance. 3- and to please double check the directional mic's to insure that they are set towards the direction that I'looking.

We had a great experience. My 21 month old was less than cooperative, then did an amazing job at collecting the needed info.
