Diana Callesano, Au.D., CCC-A, FAAA
Audiologist - Director
It was early in her life that Dr. Callesano witnessed the social and emotional impact of hearing loss. Her grandfather served as a pilot in WWII carrying troops and transporting materials to various parts of the world. His four years in the military left him with significant hearing loss that would go on to affect his job prospects and ability to communicate long after he left the service. Her grandfather frequently nodded his head in agreement although he was not being asked a question or he simply stopped participating in the conversation altogether. It was clear to see how his hearing loss permeated even the simplest of interactions. From watching him struggle all those years, Dr. Callesano recognized the value in better hearing and she knew she wanted to help people in a similar situation.
Dr. Callesano earned her Bachelor of Arts in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Adelphi University. She went on to earn her Doctor of Audiology degree from Northwestern University in Evanston, IL. Dr. Callesano has practiced in a prestigious New York City hospital as well as in private practice.
Dr. Callesano’s clinical expertise includes the diagnosis and management of hearing loss, tinnitus, misophonia, and hyperacusis. She is a professional member of the American Tinnitus Association (ATA) and sits on the International Misophonia Research advisory board. She has been professionally trained in Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT) by Drs. Jastreboff.
A Long-Island native, Dr. Callesano enjoys spending time with her husband, traveling, and cooking.
