“I had moved to this area from Iowa where I had a private practice and was starting all over again,” says Dr. Gail Linn. “It was slow going at first, with only one fitting room and one audiologist, which was me!”
Linn opened Potomac Audiology in Rockville in 1998. Today, the practice occupies 3,000 square feet of office space with seven fitting rooms and five audiologists.
During the past 25 years, Dr. Linn’s daughter, Dr. Tricia Terlep, joined the practice, adding pediatric audiology to its services. Terlep had previously worked at the Georgetown University Audiology Clinic and brought with her the skills she learned there. They have mentored, trained and hired talented young audiologists from the University of Maryland and Gallaudet University.
Something that is near and dear to Dr. Linn and the practice is called “Real Ear” or “Probe Microphone” Measures. “This procedure allows us to put a tiny tube that is attached to a microphone in a patient’s ear at the time of a hearing aid fitting,” Linn says. “We can then measure exactly what the hearing aid is delivering to the ear. This procedure is not widely done but we consider it a vital component of a good hearing aid fitting.”
Dr. Linn and her associates enjoy a good relationship with many of the most respected medical professionals in the area, and with their own devoted patients. These relationships continue to serve them as they go forward into the future of audiology.
