Dr. Saranne Lentz-Barker started her career in a medical setting where she could work with hearing aids,
cochlear implants, bone-anchored hearing aids, and assisted with intraoperative monitoring; however,
she did not feel she was able to give her hearing aid patients the time and attention they deserved. That
led her to pursue a private practice that would allow her to focus on the patient's needs and provide
patient-centered care. Dr. Barker believes every patient’s needs are unique and needs a treatment plan
that is individualized for them. She works with the patient to develop the plan while incorporating
evidence-based best practices, like actual ear measurements and treatment validation measures, to
guide patients to hear their best. Dr. Barker enjoys working with patients with hearing loss and tinnitus.
She has also taken courses in cognitive behavioral therapy, meditation, and Tinnitus Retraining Therapy.
Tinnitus research is ongoing, and management options change rapidly. She is constantly learning and
looking for the newest options available and evaluating their effectiveness to provide patients with the
best opportunities to succeed.
When away from the office, she enjoys spending time with her husband and their Redbone coonhounds,
Rosie and Scarlet. She loves being outdoors, working on their property, and kayaking.
