New Audiology Office Opened In Anne Arundel County By MD Native, Towson Grad

This Towson grad opened a hearing practice in Anne Arundel. She visits "the same restaurants, doctors' offices and shops" as her patients.

A Maryland native opened her own audiology practice this year in Glen Burnie.

Dr. Britney Ometz, who earned her bachelor's degree from Towson University, is welcoming new patients to her Anne Arundel Audiology office at 1600 Crain Highway S. Suite 509. That's located in the Crain Towers building.

"I grew up in the surrounding area, so I know the Glen Burnie people and the culture well," Ometz told Patch in an emailed statement. "I spent my time in the same restaurants, doctors' offices and shops that my patients do."

Anne Arundel Audiology opened on Jan. 3. It celebrated its grand opening on March 28 with free hearing screenings and a ribbon-cutting ceremony with the chamber of commerce. Throughout May, the office has celebrated National Speech-Language-Hearing Month, formerly known as Better Hearing and Speech Month.

"I am excited to have the opportunity to provide comprehensive patient care at a more affordable and transparent cost," Ometz said. "Patients deserve to know their hearing healthcare inside and out, so they can work with the doctor to make the best decision for their care."

After her time at Towson University, Ometz headed to the University of Tennessee for her master's and doctoral degrees in audiology. She honed her skills and connected with veterans during her fourth-year clinical rotation at Washington VA Medical Center in the District of Columbia.

Ometz has been an audiologist since 2018. After graduation, Ometz worked in a private ear nose and throat clinic. She also completed exit exams for active-duty servicemembers and evaluations for veterans' compensation and pension claims.

Ometz then decided to open her own clinic. Anne Arundel Audiology has already made waves in the community.

Ometz has given ear examinations at the B'More Healthy Expo, interviewed with WBAL and WTOP about the importance of hearing aids and spoken with FOX 45 about the dangers of loud headphones.

Anne Arundel Audiology is now focused on improving the medical community in northern Anne Arundel County.

"I also thought Glen Burnie would make an ideal location because there are so many other physicians in the area, so patients do not have to travel far to receive all of their care from various specialists and primary care doctors," Ometz said. "People want convenience in addition to quality healthcare."

More information on the practice, which has two employees, is available at Patients can also call the office at (240) 917-2108 and follow it on Facebook.
