A Letter from Sally Baerman
Why do I love Bridgewater?
I envisioned Bridgewater several years ago as a place where people could come and receive extraordinary hearing healthcare and personal service. I’m blessed because it has become so much more.
There is no greater satisfaction for me or my team than when a patient leaves Bridgewater because they are experiencing an improved quality of life. Whether the patient is referred for balance testing and is apprehensive about the long names of the tests, or they have hearing loss that needs amplification, we develop trust, and they know we will do our very best to help them.
I love walking in every morning, being cheerfully greeted by my team, and exchanging small talk about how our evenings or weekends were. It’s great to look at the schedule and get excited about seeing a new patient or a patient I have not seen in months. I enjoy challenging cases where I have to put an audiological or vestibular puzzle together. Discussing a difficult case with my audiologists invokes the student in me.
The best part is having the time to listen to my patients and address their concerns with compassion and real life solutions. We reach success when our patients tell us we have made a positive difference in their lives.
There is no greater joy for us than when we fit a patient with hearing instruments and they return for follow-ups, they are so elated due to their newfound ability to communicate more effectively with their family members. They are able to hear sounds like birds singing, their grandchildren, and the preacher at their place of worship.
I have been blessed to find a career I am passionate about and have patients and coworkers who inspire me every day. I believe my work is a reflection of God’s will, and what we do at Bridgewater brings a greater goodness to our world.
We hope that we can help you or your loved one.
