Brittany Barrington Au.D., CCC-A is a TeleHear Provider for Starkey HearCare. Dr. Brittany Barrington has been working in the field of audiology since 2012. She is loving the role of being a TeleHear provider! She enjoys working closely with the local clinicians and being able to help thousands of patients in different states.
Dr. Barrington received her bachelor’s degree at Louisiana State University (Geaux Tigers!) Her doctorate at Louisiana Tech University and completed residency at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. She is certified by the American Speech-Language Hearing Association and licensed in many states throughout the country.
Dr. Barrington began the journey of saving hearing lives by originally wanting to save speech lives. She initially wanted to be a speech therapist; however, she quickly realized that just wasn’t the career for her. She took one audiology class and knew this was the career path she would be traveling to change the lives of many. She has never regretted that decision and has since realized just how rewarding this job really is. Allowing a grandfather to hear his granddaughter’s voice for the first time or a wife to hear her husband’s voice again is an experience that’s hard to match. Our patients are so grateful for the gift of hearing and it’s such a pleasure for Dr. Barrington to be able to give that to them.
Throughout her audiology program and professionally she has worked with infants, children, adults and the geriatric population. Dr. Barrington has performed balance evaluations on chronically imbalance patients; auditory brainstem response (ABR) testing for infants in the NICU; and cochlear implant evaluations and programming for profoundly deaf patients, as well as, all things hearing aid related (i.e, hearing aid evaluations, fitting, programming, verification, etc.).
Personally, Dr. Barrington enjoys hunting, being on the lake, spending time with her family, friends and dogs, and being outdoors. Her and her husband moved to Mississippi from Texas to be closer to family.
