A message from Hear Here Audiology - St Petersburg about COVID-19:
Dr. Mary Burton is a native of St. Petersburg and the Co-Owner of Hear Here Audiology. She earned her doctorate in Audiology from the University of South Florida, where she also completed her undergraduate degree in Disorders of Communications. Dr. Burton’s primary commitment is providing excellent patient care and offering state of the art hearing technology. Her focus is on best practice and developing relationships with her patients as she understands once you become a hearing aid patient, you are a lifelong patient. Dr. Burton enjoys community outreach and education through guest lecturing at local hospital groups, church groups, community and civic organizations. In her free time she enjoys spending time with her husband and four children.
I am a Clearwater/Saint Petersburg native and love to call this area home. I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders from the University of Florida- Gainesville in 2010. After graduation, I moved back home and completed my Doctorate of Audiology at the University of South Florida – Tampa in 2015. I started my career as a clinical Audiologist at a local Ear, Nose, and Throat practice where I had been working since 2013 as an audiology assistant and where I completed my final clinical rotation with Dr. Burton.
In 2017, Mary and I decided to open Hear Here Audiology. It has truly been an amazing experience and allows me to thrive creatively and honor the importance of each patient. I believe being an Audiologist is a privilege and value being part of a patient’s journey to stay connected to their loved one’s and improve their quality of life through hearing. I am dedicated to helping patients find the right hearing solution for their specific needs.
When not with my Hear Here family, I am spending quality time with my wonderful husband and 2 beautiful children. My husband and I met when I was 9 years old and we have been best friends ever since. My daughter, Penelope, and son, Xander, keep me full of joy and laughter. I come from a big Italian family and if you have ever seen the movie “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” you get it. There are family gatherings weekly – always with red sauce and wine! As a family, we love traveling, getting together with friends, and spending time on the water.

“Yes, I was not happy about having to go here for a hearing test. As I am sure many of you are also procrastinating about this “to do”. So let me allay your fears. Dr. Linthicum (& staff) make you feel comfortable from the moment you walk in. She has that way of just making you relax. And no matter the question, discussion, concern, she just calmly answers it for you. No matter what type of device you may need this practice can help. I was a 100% “I am NOT getting hearing aids....no way, no how” I am now a HUGE believer and will always thank Dr Linthicum who put me at ease and now I am hearing what I have been missing. Thank you!!! #whodathunk”
“I have been a client of Dr. Burton's for five years and have been very impressed with her knowledge and professionalism. She has been outstanding with her diagnosis and treatment of my hearing problems. She is aways willing to spend the necessary amount of time help with hearing issues and any technical difficulties I have. The whole staff is very friendly and helpful. There are audiologists closer to where I live in Tampa, but I would rather drive to St. Petersburg to get help from Dr. Burton.”
“I was very very happy with the results. Dr. Linthicum changed one hearing aid to a larger dome and my hearing in the right ear was much improved. I will have an updated hearing test in January. Very pleasant experience. ”
“I first went to Hear Here Audiology with my mother, at whom I've been nagging to get her hearing screened for years! Dr. Alina Linthicum was kind, helpful, and approachable. My mother gets extremely anxious about seeing doctors. She has a history of medical issues that makes her anxiety completely reasonable. Dr. Linthicum's friendly demeanor made everything peaceful and relaxed. After my mother's diagnosis of hearing loss and Dr. Linthicum's helpfulness in having my mom fitted for hearing aids, I knew that I'd go directly to their office if I ever had the need. After a few weeks of appointments with my mother, we did a hearing screening for me after a joking conversation about how I don't hear everything that my husband seems to hear. Little did I know that I have moderate hearing loss as well! In less than a two month time frame, both my mother and I were fitted with phenomenal hearing aids that are extremely versatile, comfortable, and technologically advanced (Bluetooth compatible) by a compassionate and caring doctor and staff that genuinely wants to help people. I would recommend Dr. Linthicum and her partner to anyone. Anywhere.”
“If you are seeking an Audiology practice where you want professional competency, but you don't want to feel rushed or treated like a number, I highly recommend Dr. Alina Linthicum & Dr. Mary Burton to you. I have been a patient of Dr. Linthicum for between 1 & 2 years, after finally yielding to my wife's "encouragement" that I needed to have my hearing more professionally tested. The test indicated that I did, in fact, have some hearing loss at certain frequencies, so I began the process of learning about alternatives to help the situation. What I found with Dr. Linthicum was information. She explained choices, features, benefits & costs, answering all my questions. I never felt any pressure, whatsoever. During my test period, I did have several questions, as well as some issues with using the manufacturer's software. One of these occurred when Dr. Linthicum was not available, and I was not able to resolve it over the phone. Dr. Burton saw me almost immediately, without an appointment. She resolved the issue, making me feel as though I had been her only patient as long as she had been in practice! I am greeted with genuine smiles every time I am there.”
