This month, we are excited to introduce to you one of our doctors of audiology, Dr. Briana Thornton. As we expand our practice, we want you to get to know the people you’ll be working with – their background, education and even their interests and hobbies. As we build relationships with our patients and their families, we hope to continue to get to know you too.

Dr. Thornton studied for her Bachelor of Arts in Communication Science and Disorders at Northern Arizona University, and completed her Doctorate of Audiology at A.T. Still University.  She remained close to her alma mater as an adjunct faculty there and is also a fellow of the American Academy of Audiology. When it comes to audiology, Dr. Thornton has a special interest in adult and pediatric diagnostics and rehabilitation through the use of prescribed hearing devices carefully selected based on individual necessity. By working closely with her patients, she enjoys creating a plan to improve hearing that fits an individual lifestyle, as she knows that everyone has different needs and wants.

Her interests in pediatric audiology come from a background in working with children. Previously, she worked at Mesa Public Schools as the district audiologist.  Now she calls the Advanced Hearing Group practice in Mesa home. As she continues a career in audiology, she hopes to continue to work with students in her field as their preceptor and develop her skills along with theirs as a knowledgeable and caring audiologist for the adult and pediatric population.  She has many goals for her career which include working more with ABRs, adult and pediatric as well as cochlear implants, as well as enhancing her pediatric testing and diagnostic skills so that she can one day pass the skills on to students in the audiology program as their professor.

When not in the Mesa office, Dr. Thornton enjoys spending time at home with her husband and her two amazing children – also her greatest accomplishment. Whether making crafts or just being outdoors, time with her family is always well spent.

Are you in need of a caring, energetic audiologist who will work with you, consider your individual needs and put you first? Come on in to the Mesa location and meet Dr. Briana Thornton!
