“I consider myself fortunate to have graduated in the inaugural Doctor of Audiology class at one of the US News and World Report’s top Audiology programs. Having had the opportunity to spend an additional 11 years on faculty at the University of Florida allowed me to further refine my skills and learn from leaders in the Audiology field. I look forward to bringing this knowledge and over 15 years of experience to help every patient at Solinsky Hearing Center hear what they’ve been missing.”

Briana Deslauriers, Au.D., CCC-A

Doctor of Audiology

Serving: Enfield, Glastonbury, and West Hartford

“Working as an audiologist in a busy practice is a challenging experience that allows me to help many people with a variety of hearing issues. Hearing loss can have a tremendous impact on a person’s daily activities, sometimes causing them to stop doing the things in life that they enjoy. I am able to use my knowledge and clinical experience to improve their quality of living and reconnect them to the things they have once loved. I am very excited to be a part of Solinsky Hearing Center, and I am looking forward to the incredibly rewarding experience of helping every patient through their hearing journey starting with their very first steps.”

Ben Taylor

Hearing Instrument Specialist

Serving: Avon and West Hartford

Ben is a second-generation Hearing Instrument Specialist. He began his career helping those suffering with hearing loss at his family’s clinics in San Antonio, Texas. This is where it was instilled in him to treat and view each patient as a member of his own family.

He met his wife while they were both doing relief work after Hurricane Katrina and moved to New England shortly after they got married and are very happy to call it home.

Ben’s genuine passion is to give people the gift of better hearing and he is entirely dedicated to utilizing his skill set, the latest technology, and old-fashioned care and compassion to make sure his patients don’t miss out on a single precious moment of their lives.

Personal Interests

Ben enjoys spending as much time as possible with his wife, Amy, engaging in volunteer work together and exploring the great outdoors of New England.

How We Give Back to Our Community

We believe everyone deserves good hearing health. That’s why we provide hearing screenings and educational information on hearing loss to assisted living facilities in our communities. We visit various senior centers twice a month to provide hearing screenings for those who cannot make it to our offices.
