About Live Better Hearing
Our offices are staffed with some of the nation’s very best Doctors of Audiology and Hearing Instrument Specialists. Live Better Hearing provides the full range of audiology services for all ages including testing for newborns, diagnostic hearing evaluations, balance testing, advanced electrophysiology testing, as well as the provision of the most cutting-edge hearing aids, balance and tinnitus treatments. Live Better Hearing provides appropriate, medically and scientifically sound testing and treatment options for patients, in a kind and compassionate way.
Founded 12 years ago, Live Better Hearing has grown tremendously through the support of its patients and people. As of a result of thousands of patient success stories, it has now become the premier practice within the Maryland and Virginia region.
At the heart of Live Better Hearing’s focus and purpose are its founders and owners, Drs. Ross and Jenifer Cushing. Drs. Ross & Jenifer Cushing met at the University of Buffalo while working on their doctorates in audiology. As students, both Ross and Jen knew that when they graduated they wanted to create a practice that put people first, and fate brought them together to do just that – as a husband and wife team.
As business leaders and owners, Ross and Jen remain resolute and tenacious in their mission of helping people live better lives through the experience of better hearing.
In addition to ensuring Live Better Hearing and the nonprofit organization Live Better Foundation remains committed to its goal of helping others, Ross and Jen have three beautiful children and live happily in Maryland.
