Community Hearing Center is the only Doctor of Audiology owned, independent, private-practice in Jackson County. Dr. Kelli Bogue obtained her Doctor of Audiology degree from Ohio University, as well as her Bachelor of Arts in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Michigan State University, and her Associate of Arts from Jackson College. Dr. Bogue completed her residency at the Dayton VA Medical Center, in Dayton, OH. There, she was responsible for evaluating and treating Veterans’ hearing and balance impairments including counseling and fitting hearing aids, hearing aid accessories, and assistive listening devices, conducting aural rehabilitation and tinnitus retraining therapy programs, performing occupational environmental noise measurements and making recommendations for safe exposure levels, as well as counseling on prevention of noise-induced hearing loss.
During her doctoral studies, Dr. Bogue also gained experience working in rural clinics in Appalachia, community-based independent hearing clinics, hospitals and regional medical centers, and through her university clinic. Since graduation she has worked as an Audiologist for an ENT practice in eastern Michigan, and as as a representative for a major hearing aid manufacturer. Her diversity of experience has given her insight to nearly every audiological care and delivery model.
Working with patients and practitioners from a variety of backgrounds, and learning their points of pain, helped reinforce Dr. Bogue’s ultimate idea of what an Audiology practice should look like.
