We spent time on a brief break from our work to enjoy the delicious cake and some interesting conversation about our lives outside of the office. As it usually does, my birthday prompted some reflection and introspection.

Usually, the arrival of my birthday strikes me as an alert that time is passing. There have been years when that alert prompted me to create “to-do” lists full of things I thought would help me stay healthy and happy or accomplish goals. Those are all good things. In fact, at Hearing Center of Long Island we are dedicated to educating patients about what they can do to live a healthy happy life as they age. However, this year I had a conversation with an old friend about my birthday that got me thinking differently. Sally reminded me that if the arrival of my birthday strikes me as an alert that time is passing, then rather than just making to-do lists it might be healthy to stop, reflect, and appreciate what I have to be grateful for.

Actually, research confirms that if you really want to do something that will improve your health and happiness over time, practicing gratitude should be at the top of your to-do list. Expressing gratitude is associated with a host of mental and physical benefits. Studies have shown that feeling thankful can improve sleep, mood and immunity. Gratitude can decrease depression, anxiety, difficulties with chronic pain and even risk of disease.

After my conversation with my friend, I thought more about gratitude. On reflection, I noticed that I often focus much more on what I want to improve than what I am happy with or thankful for.

If I stop to think about it, I realize I am grateful for many things - from friends, family and my staff, to the ability to enjoy music and art and to help my patients enjoy improved quality of life, and so much more. I have now resolved to take a few minutes each day to keep a “gratitude journal” and to purposely express sincere gratitude to someone in my life every week.

Thinking of birthdays, aging and gratitude, I am reminded of the following part of a prayer of Teresa of Avila. It struck me as a good description of the kind of person I want to be as I age.
- Dr. larry

Keep me reasonably sweet, for a sour old person
is one of the crowning works of the devil.
Give me the ability to see good things in unexpected places
and talents in unexpected people;
and give me, O Lord, the grace to tell them so.
- Teresa of Avila

Our thanks to Thomas Hoey of Long Beach for sharing this description of his experience with us:


I called Hearing Center of Long Island after being disappointed with other hearing doctors and Costco and big box stores to fix my hearing aids or to fit me with hearing aids that would work. And right away I knew I might be in the right place. I spoke to Omar, who was friendly, knowledgeable and did not put me on hold or act too busy to answer my questions. He gave me all the attention of a valued patient right from the start.

We found a date and time for my appointments. Soon after, I received email and text confirmation regarding my appointment. A few days later, I received an email from Dr Cardano, explaining what to expect at my first visit there and how to best prepare. He included a wonderful video that explained it all and what were the benefits of really getting a thorough exam and fitting for my hearing aids.

Dr. Cardano handled all of the issues that concerned me with the ease of a truly experienced professional that has seen it all. I left his office with the BEST HEARING I’VE HAD in 20 Years! I left and turned around and faced his office and took this picture. I got emotional. FINALLY, a hearing Doctor and staff that renewed my faith in being treated with respect, caring and leave with tremendous results!

If you are thinking about getting a solution to your hearing problems GO DIRECTLY TO The HEARING CENTER Of LONG ISLAND! "
-Thomas Hoey
Long Beach, NY

3 - edcuating our patients and

We are gratified that Mr. Hoey appreciated our work in each of these areas.

Fun, educational presentation on healthy aging and hearing by Dr. Cardano at the Sunny Atlantic Beach Club on the water in Atlantic Beach yesterday . Thanks to everyone who attended on a great beach day!


I was recently in Boston for a conference and was able to attend a Red Sox game at Fenway Park for the first time. Fenway hosted it's first professional baseball game in 1912. Most of th stadium looked to me like it could have been from 1912.
Lots of baseball history there. There is solitary red seat (Section 42, Row 37, Seat 21) in the bleachers. This is the place where Ted Williams hit a 502-foot home run on June 9, 1946, which is, to this date, still the longest home run in Fenway Park history.

Visited board-certified health counselor Tracy Cleary C.H.H.P at hear Rockville Centre office.

Since hearing loss significantly increases the risk of serious falling incidents and since falls are the #1 cause of accidental injury and death in seniors I am always interested is learning ways to help seniors prevent fall or reduce the chance of injury from falls. (HCLIFallsReport.com for more info). I certainly learned a lot during my visit with Tracy.

My visit was so interesting! I learned about bone health and how it can be improved. Tracy put me through some of the OsteoStrong treatment she uses to helo clients improve their bone health. The technology she uses assesses and tracks your bone strength so that you can see the improvements as you progress.

Tracy is an extremely caring and knowlegeable practioner who is passionate about improving the wellness of her clients, having overcome a number of health challenges herself. Her clients are certainly fortunate to be able to work with her.

The Hearing Clarity Solution- Improving Your Mental Acuity and Quality of Life With Better Hearing Clarity

During this webinar, we will cover the following:

Why do some of the most advanced hearing aid technology add to hearing clarity problems rather than solve them?
Why is hearing often such a problem even when voices are loud enough– and what can REALLY be done about it?
How can you prevent hearing clarity problems?
What is the best way to help a friend or family member hearing clarity problems to follow a conversation with you best?
What physical health and mental acuity problems are related to hearing clarity problems?
Why does the typical “complete” hearing evaluation fail to give you some of the most important information about your hearing?
What is the newest, most successful approach to solving the hearing clarity problem? What is the proof?
What must hearing care professionals do to make the newest technology effective (something many do not do)?

Mary Cardano - In Memorium

• Focus on what is important.
• Learn everything you can about what you are planning to do.
• Work hard.
• Celebrate your successes.

These were things my mom told my brother and me repeatedly to make sure we remembered them. She passed away in October at age 90 after a long bout with cancer.

My brother Michael and I have very different personalities. Mom used to joke that she thought she raised us both the same way, so could not understand why we were so different. When we were going to school, she used to tell my brother to stop socializing so much and study more. She used to tell me to stop studying so much and go have some fun. Regardless of the differences in our personalities we both learned these lessons from her.

I was fortunate to be with Mom the day she passed away. She was lucid to the end. For me, experiencing her familiar personality, seeing her familiar facial expressions and hearing her familiar tone of voice on that day heightened my awareness that our time here is precious and none of us knows how much we have left.

The experience led me to reflect on the messages she repeated so often:

Focus on what is important
The more I reflect, the more I realize how important it is for me to nurture relationships - with family, friends, staff and patients. It is important to me to use my time and abilities to contribute to the quality of life of others. That is what makes me feel my life has meaning. I have chosen to do that by helping people enjoy healthy aging so they can focus on what is important to them. Untreated and undertreated hearing loss are major factors that interfere with quality of life as we age. Treatment of hearing loss is the focus of my career and my practice. There are other factors related to hearing loss – like social isolation – that can also diminish quality of life as we age. I plan to provide practical research-based education on these as well.

Learn everything you can about what you are planning to do
At Hearing Center of Long Island there are five core values we are dedicated to. We have specific procedures in place to hold ourselves accountable for these. One of our core values is education. Fortunately, the technology and techniques treating hearing loss are constantly improving. My staff and I are dedicated to ongoing learning to ensure that we continuously upgrade the care we provide our patients. For us, education also includes doing our best to help people learn about treating their hearing loss for optimum long-term results.

Work hard
Thomas Edison once said, “There is no substitute for hard work”. Knowledge, intelligence and ability can all be wasted without diligent effort. Reflecting on my own mortality makes me redouble my commitment to work hard consistently. In the new year, I am committing to working harder than ever to help our patients enjoy the best quality of life possible.

Celebrate your successes
Throughout my life, when my mom saw me working hard, she encouraged me to keep at it, but she reminded me that I should not expect to be able to keep at it for long if I did not stop occasionally to celebrate my successes. At Hearing Center of Long Island, our staff encourages each other to work hard at helping our patients, but we always look forward to celebrating with our patients when they achieve success in overcoming their hearing difficulties and solving related problems. This is one of the reasons we are so grateful that many of our patients share their hearing loss treatment successes with us and with others. (See HCLITestimonials.com).

Our time here is precious and none of us knows how much we have left. Let’s make the most of it! No matter your age, I encourage you to focus on what is important, learn everything you can about what you are planning to do, work hard, and remember to celebrate your successes.

Enjoy your loved ones and friends this Holiday season. May this season fill your homes with SOUNDS of laughter, Great Conversations and Music you will enjoy and memories you will remember.

From Dr. Larry and Your friends at Hearing Center of Long Island!


In the spirt of Holiday Rom-Com, I thought you would all enjoy this TRUE STORY!

A Michigan woman and her family were vacationing in a small New England town where Paul Newman and his family often visited.

One Sunday morning, the woman got up early to take a long walk. After a brisk five-mile hike, she decided to treat herself to a double-dip chocolate ice cream cone.

She hopped in the car, drove to the center of the village and went straight to the combination bakery/ice cream parlor. There was only one other patron in the store: Paul Newman, sitting at the counter having a doughnut and coffee.

The woman's heart skipped a beat as her eyes made contact with those famous baby-blue eyes. The actor nodded graciously and the star struck woman smiled demurely. Pull yourself together! She chides herself. You're a happily married woman with three children, you're forty-five years old, not a teenager!

The clerk filled her order and she took the double-dip chocolate ice cream cone in one hand and her change in the other. Then she went out the door, avoiding even a glance in Paul Newman's direction.

When she reached her car, she realized that she had a handful of change but her other hand was empty. Where's my ice cream cone? Did I leave it in the store? Back into the shop she went, expecting to see the cone still in the clerk's hand or in a holder on the counter or something! No ice cream cone was in sight.

With that, she happened to look over at Paul Newman. His face broke into his familiar, warm, friendly grin and he said to the woman,

"You put it in your purse."
