Pasadena, MD Hearing Clinic

Pasadena, MD, located along the Patapsco River and connected by the Francis Scott Key Bridge, has been home to our Live Better Hearing office for the last two decades. Situated in Anne Arundel County, this city offers the Atlantic Marina Resort, as well as Hancock’s Resolution, an authentic farmstead modeled after life in the late 18th century.

Located in the Horizon’s Building, we are surrounded by a plethora of commerce and shopping, including Home Goods and TJ Maxx. To reach our office, simply enter through the clock tower and take the elevator to the third floor. From there, you will turn right and we are located at the end of the hall. Suite numbers are not in correct order, so don’t worry if you notice some deviation. Because we strive to provide the care, our community deserves and needs, we are open five days a week – from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Fridays.
