Dr. Gordon first became interested in the fields of Audiology & Speech Pathology at ten years of age when a speech language pathologist treated her brother for vocal nodules. During that time her brother’s communication was limited to a pencil and notepad. Seeing the frustration of her brother not being able to communicate his thoughts inspired Dr. Gordon to pursue a career in Communication Disorders and Sciences and ultimately obtain a Doctor of Audiology degree. She dreamed of getting her degree from Columbia University and ultimately owning her own practice. She realized her dreams.
As a young girl Dr. Gordon avidly read about Helen Keller, Annie Sullivan and others … she began her career with internships at the Manhattan Ear, Nose and Throat Hospital as well as the Veterans Administration in New York. This was followed by a position at New Rochelle Hospital Medical Center where she worked with infant, children and geriatric patients. She then furthered her hearing aid experience at The Hearing Laboratory and moved on to the Veterans Administration in New Jersey. There she obtained extensive experience in hearing aid fittings, Electronystagmography & Auditory Brainstem Response Testing. Dr. Gordon has been in numerous consultations with physicians as well as lecturing in school systems, assisted living, adult community and other various groups.
Dr. Gordon always dreamed of having a private practice and began in 1987 as the owner of Staten Island Audiological Services. There she worked with large numbers of infants, autistic and speech and language delayed children as well as children suffering from auditory processing disorders and hearing impairment. She is fortunate to have experience with patients of all ages and enjoys the diversity of working with newborns, children and adults as well as performing all areas of diagnostic testing and hearing aid fittings.
Dr. Gordon has been working with the geriatric population for 30 years. Currently Dr. Gordon’s area of interest is hearing loss and cognitive decline in adults. She is a member of the Geriatric Advisory Council and the American Society on Aging in Monmouth County. Dr. Gordon has extensive experience evaluating patients with Alzheimer’s & Dementia, fitting them with the appropriate hearing aid technology.

The passion that Dr. Breen has for audiology and the various populations served led to a teaching position at Brooklyn College in 2008.
