About Our Hearing Aids Specialist
Respected audiologist Dr. Victoria Graff started Staff Audiologists and Hearing Aid Specialists of Kentucky in 1991. In June of 2018, Dr. Graff decided to spend less time in the office and travel the world, after which the Amanda’s acquired ownership of the center. Through the years, the company has focused on providing great service and quality hearing aids. While Dr. Graff is still involved in the practice, she is entrusting the hearing needs of her patients to the capable hands of the Amanda’s. We are both so excited for this opportunity! We cannot imagine a better occupation than helping improve the lives of others through the gift of hearing. We believe that everyone should feel comfortable in making the decision to invest in their hearing needs. We promise to always put you first.
