Kay Young, Au.D.

Owner, Audiologist

From the moment you meet our audiologist Dr. Kay Young, you’ll feel reassured and relaxed. After all, she’s been helping people discover the joys of better hearing since 1984, when she founded Shelby Hearing Center with her husband, Dr. Lamar Young. Kay possesses extensive education and professional experience, including a Doctor of Audiology degree. Just as importantly, she says, “I’m driven by the overriding desire to make a real difference in the lives of my patients. This is what gives me the greatest satisfaction as an audiologist.”
