Son 2017 Ricmar

Dr. Son graduated with Cum laude with a degree in electrical engineering from Cooper Union with full scholarship. She then enrolled in a Ph.D. program in speech and hearing sciences at MIT. She was a member of junior Alpha omega alpha honor society at SUNY Downstate medical school and graduated with magna suma cum laude. She trained at Northwestern Memorial Hospital for otolaryngology residency and at University of Cincinnati for otology fellowship. She was a director of otology at Bronx Lebanon Hospital before joining this practice where she performed many hearing rehabilitation surgeries such as cochlear implant and Baha. She played classical piano when she was younger and always had interest in hearing and sound perception:

“I chose my subspecialty of otology so I can combine my interest in speech and music with signal processing and engineering. I understand the socially alienating effects of hearing loss and it brings me joy to help those with hearing loss.”

She underwent additional training to combine acupuncture into her care of patients with chronic problems of tinnitus, dizziness and TMJ as well as other ENT issues that may not respond well to conventional western medicine.

She treats all aspects of ENT for patients of all ages and also perform minimally invasive balloon sinuplasty as well as endoscopic ear surgeries in office.
