Briana Bruno Holtan, Au.D. , F.A.A.A.

Audiologist – Carney Office

Dr. Holtan is the co-owner of Audiology Associates and received her master’s degree (M.S.) in audiology from Towson State University and her doctor of audiology degree (Au.D.) from A.T. Still University Arizona School of Health Sciences.

She hails from Norfolk, Virginia, and grew fond of the Baltimore area due in large part to her mentor the late Dr. Craig Johnson, an advocate for autonomy in audiology, when she joined the Audiology Associates, Inc. team in 1997.

Dr. Holtan’s commitment to excellence is carried throughout her role at Audiology Associates. Using her compassion and willingness to drive her forward, she is dedicated to administering exceptional personal care to meet her patients’ needs.

“Understanding each patient’s life experiences and lifestyle is not only important but is also critical to improving our patients’ hearing needs.”

Alongside her clinical responsibilities, Dr. Holtan has served as the treasurer and president of the Maryland Academy of Audiology, where she has worked tirelessly on behalf of audiologists and consumers on both the state and federal legislative fronts.

She is also co-author of “Institutionalizing Patient’s Freedom of Choice,” a published article in Audiology Today.

As an advocate for change, Dr. Holton has worked to disassemble policies under the Federal Employee Health Benefit Plan, which local carriers misinterpreted. This meant that patients under the provision were unable to upgrade to better technology and treatment most appropriate for them or use their insurance benefits as a partial payment.

“This not only restored our patients’ freedom of choice but also all federal employee health benefit subscribers’ in the United States.”

When she isn’t in the clinic, she enjoys spending time with her husband, golden retriever, and immediate and extended families. She also enjoys outdoor activities such as gardening, hiking, and fishing.
