ADC audiologist discusses Better Hearing Month on KXAN
Audiologist Penny Barron was in KXAN’s studio on Saturday morning to talk about the importance of hearing with anchor Erin Cargile.
During Better Hearing Month, Penny wanted viewers to understand the importance of having your hearing examined at all ages. Many people take their hearing for granted until it is diminished or gone. She is seeing more and more young adults and teens in her office as well.
After examining Ms. Cargile with the video otoscope, Ms. Barron offered advice for cleaning your ears – simply wipe your ear with a clean cloth. A little wax is good for you and using cotton swabs may impact or cause damage to the ear drum.
For more information about hearing screenings visit our Audiology page or call us at 512-901-4808.
Ms. Barron will also be hosting a free seminar on May 23 from 1-2 pm at ADC’s Main Clinic.
Every month, The Austin Diagnostic Clinic recognizes a staff member who is making a difference. In April, ADC recognized Candace Wheeler, Patient Access Supervisor for Family Practice and EasyCare at Cedar Bend.
Wheeler, a Hutto native, has been working at ADC for more than four years.
As a patient access supervisor, she helps make sure the front desk is working smoothly when patients check in or out.
“Cedar Bend is constantly a very busy building,” Wheeler said. “We have Family Practice, Pediatrics and Easy Care in our building. We also do services for lab and X-ray. We try to give every patient a positive experience everyday.”
Wheeler is passionate about health and wellness. She is currently working on her personal training license and enjoys working with people to help them reach their fitness goals.
Wheeler says one day she would like to open her own training studio, but in the meantime, she loves her work at ADC.
“I absolutely love all of my co-workers,” she said. “I seriously think that I work with the best people. They are always so uplifting and encouraging. I can honestly say they are so much more than just people I work with they are truly family. I have established some of my best friendships at ADC.”
