Dr. Lori Kay

Doctor of Audiology

Lori K. Kay, Au.D. has been working as an audiologist since 1991. Originally from Ohio and an avid Ohio State University Buckeye fan, Dr. Kay has worked with all age groups. She loves working with adults to help them overcome their hearing difficulties and to improve their quality of life. Seeing individuals reconnecting with their family and friends because they can hear again gives her great satisfaction. Dr. Kay has worked with a rehabilitation company in North Carolina, as an Executive Director of a non-profit Speech and Hearing Center in Florida, and in private practice both in New Mexico and Texas.

Dr. Kay encourages family members to attend appointments with their loved one as hearing loss not only affects the individual but the family as well. Learning how to help the individual receive the most benefit from the hearing aids requires a team effort in order for the individual to be successful. Continuing education is important to Dr. Kay. She attends the American Academy of Audiology conventions, attends training courses provided by hearing aid manufacturers, and takes some online courses. Dr. Kay believes that continuing her education allows her to bring a higher quality of care to her patients.

Dr. Kay enjoys spending time with her husband, a United States Air Force Veteran and their two dogs. They like to travel and spend time with family. When Dr. Kay gets any “spare time” she enjoys scrapbooking family photos, making cards for special occasions, and reading.

Every one very cordial and helpful in explaining how the hearing aid works. More explanation has helped some. No complaints it’s difficult to get used to the aids.

SoundWorks Hearing is beyond my expectations. The special fitted ear bud's. Best Hearing aids I've ever used. Ten times better than any I've used before and hundreds times better than OTC ones. Would recommend SoundWorks Hearing to everyone.

I’ve worn hearing aids for over 30 years. I wear my aids 12-15 hours a day. I’ve had several brands due to hearing needs changing. The first time at SOUNDWORKS they listened to my needs and I was surprised how much better I could hear with these aids. They are...
