Our Professional Staff
Dr. Jeff Baron, Au.D.
I have been an Audiologist in private practice for over 22 years. I am extremely pleased that I have helped thousands of patients hear clearly, comfortably and as natural as possible with their hearing aids for more than two decades. I have also helped many people with tinnitus.
As a young rock & roll musician in New York City I played and listened to loud music that caused me to have hearing loss with occasional tinnitus. Looking back, it was great that I was able to see such artists as Jimmy Hendrix and the Grateful Dead play at the Fillmore East, but, in hindsight, I would have enjoyed it even more if I had known to wear proper hearing protection.
Today I wear hearing aids (that I love) and use custom musician earplugs when I listen to loud music. Thanks to my training I know how to make hearing aids sound good when listening to music or speech.
I was a pioneer in developing a successful technique for fitting hearing aids by prescription, which people said at the time could not be done. I continue to develop and refine this technique using cutting edge hearing aid technology.
I am extremely concerned about permanent hearing loss caused by loud headphones or earbuds. Because of that, I have designed and manufactured a product that prevents this problem (see Hearing Protection page).
I have taught skiing at The Winter Park National Sports Center for the Disabled for over 15 years. I have learned more from the inspirational people I work with in the Winter Park Program than they can ever learn from me! I am happily married, have 5 children, love living in Colorado and have fun with my dog Monte. I appreciate the opportunity to help you with your hearing healthcare.
I am a Registered Nurse with over 45 years of experience working in a variety of specialties that included Medical/Surgical, Oncology and Disability Case Management.
I first became familiar with The Hearing and Tinnitus Center in April of 2018 when I became a patient of Dr. Jeff. I soon became part of the Hearing and Tinnitus family as an office assistant.
I also suffer from hearing loss and over 25 years of tinnitus. I have taken advantage of all the modern technology that my hearing aids have to offer that include blue tooth capability and tinnitus relief. My hearing aids have greatly improved my quality of life. This personal experience has helped me relate and empathize with our patients.
I am currently in the process of receiving my own Hearing Dog that will provide me with security and safety as “ears” that will work better than my own.
Besides enjoying meeting all our patients I enjoy spending my semi-retirement reading and spending time with my grandchildren.
I look forward to greeting and meeting you when you visit us.
