We have been providing quality hearing care for over 15 years!
Southeast Kentucky Audiology is a private practice owned and operated by Dr. Liz Rogers, who purchased the practice in early 2017. Although Dr. Rogers took over the practice two years ago, Southeast Kentucky Audiology has been helping the community hear better for over 15 years. We pride ourselves on building relationships with our patients. Trust and honesty are some of the key components of running a successful practice, that’s why all of the hearing services we offer are built upon those factors.
Although we are located in rural Kentucky, our patients commute from the city to come see us. Our expert care and friendly demeanor sets us apart from other practices. We believe in providing our patients with the best care possible and we will always put you first. We provide comprehensive care to patients of all ages. Our wide range of services include hearing evaluations, hearing aid consultations, cochlear implant services, ear wax removal, and balance evaluations. We can diagnose and treat many disorders related to your ears and hearing health.
