Audiologists – Lutherville, MD

Rory Cernik, Au.D.

Rory Cernik, Au.D.

CEO/President, Doctor of Audiology

Dr. Rory D. Cernik is our Director of Clinical Services at the Hearing Assessment Center. He has received extensive training from some of the brightest minds in audiology.

More »

During his doctoral training, he focused his research on the auditory system’s response to stimulation and deprivation. He was able to document that short-term deprivation, similar to hearing loss, altered the effectiveness of the auditory system. These studies serve as the foundation for what we now know today; that hearing loss, if left untreated, increases the likelihood of cognitive atrophy and decline. Dr. Cernik uses his research background and extensive training to properly diagnose and treat hearing loss in his community. Often, patients will drive quite a few hours to spend time with Dr. Cernik. His passion is to properly educate his patients and rehabilitate the cognitive aspects of their hearing loss. He also practices general audiology. Dr. Cernik is currently seeing patients in our Lutherville location.

Danielle Yurjevich, Au.D.

Doctor of Audiology

Dr. Danielle Yurjevich pursued her doctorate degree at Towson University, eventually joining the Hearing Assessment Center as a doctoral resident before graduating and becoming a full-time audiologist at the practice.

More »

During her doctoral studies, her research titled “Frequency Following Response Measured to Noise-Vocoded Speech in Adults with Normal Hearing Sensitivity” described the brainstem neural representation of spectral and temporal cues in listeners with normal hearing using noise-vocoded (cochlear implant simulated speech) stimuli. She was specifically interested in how patients with cochlear implants process speech.

Danielle has co-authored several journal articles on the human frequency following response to various speech stimuli to better understand how sound is processed at the neural level. She presented at the Association for Research in Otolaryngology conference in Baltimore. She holds memberships in multiple state and national professional associations.

Danielle uses her research background and training to properly diagnose and treat hearing loss in patients of all ages. She is intentional about creating an enjoyable, informative, and comfortable environment for her patients and their family members. Her compassionate approach allows her to connect with patients to ensure they are receiving the best individualized care. Dr. Yurjevich is currently seeing patients in our Lutherville office.

Donald A. Guillen, Au.D.

Donald A. Guillen, Au.D.

Doctor of Audiology

Dr. Donald A. Guillen earned his doctorate from Towson University and completed his clinical fellowship at the Hearing Assessment Center under the tutelage of Dr. Rory Cernik. Days available: Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday

More »

During his doctoral studies, his research focused heavily on the effect of degraded listening conditions (background noise and reverberation) on cochlear filtering as well as auditory brainstem encoding in normal and hearing impaired individuals. In particular, he was interested in understanding why hearing impaired individuals have a difficult time understanding speech in noisy environments while normal hearing individuals do not. He utilizes this in-depth understanding to properly treat hearing impairment clinically, as the applicability of this research is integral to the recommendations he makes on a daily basis. He now dedicates much of his time to the thorough evaluation and treatment of individuals with chronic tinnitus and hyperacusis. He has established himself in the community as a caring and well-versed tinnitus professional who has treated and assisted many of these individuals.

Dr. Guillen also thoroughly enjoys educating patients on the dangers of untreated hearing loss and serves as a Community Ambassador. He is passionate about the importance of addressing hearing loss. He frequently performs talks and provides hearing screenings at senior centers, local military retiree centers, hunting clubs, and other local organizations. Under this role, he has also had the privilege of assisting the international community through his work with the St. Clare Medical Outreach program, a Baltimore based program, which looks to lessen healthcare disparities between immigrants/refugees and the general population. Dr. Guillen has demonstrated a strong commitment to serving our local veterans and has taken on a leadership role in this area. Currently, Dr. Guillen is seeing patients in our Lutherville and Bel Air locations.

Expertise and Experiences

  • Spanish-proficiency certification from the University of Alcalá de Henares in Madrid. Dr. Guillen is the only bilingual audiologist in the Baltimore Metro Area.
  • Highly specialized in cerumen (ear wax) removal utilizing only non-abrasive methods to ensure a pain free experience.
  • Specializes in industrial audiology and worker’s compensation claims. Has worked with numerous firefighters and police officers in the area, providing rehabilitative treatment to many of these individuals.
  • Accredited provider for the Hear Now Foundation program.
  • His professional interests and expertise include: tinnitus evaluation, tinnitus retraining therapy, the diagnosis and treatment of hearing loss, geriatric audiology, and cognitive hearing deficits and processing disorders.
