LORI JURMAN. M.S. Lori Jurman is a highly experienced audiologist and hearing aid specialist with over 35 years in the field of Audiology. She comes to Las Vegas from Long Island, New York where she was a staff audiologist within a 7 doctor ENT practice for many years. She has ample experience working with hearing-impaired individuals as well as those patients suffering from tinnitus and vertigo. Lori’s true satisfaction as an audiologist comes from hearing aid dispensing, particularly with the geriatric population. She takes great pride in being able to help her patients choose appropriate amplification, teach them how to use their new devices and then watch them get back into conversations with their families, watch TV and other activities they were not able to do before obtaining amplification. Lori believes that it is her job as an audiologist to show her patients what they have been missing out of life due to their hearing loss and help them get back those “lost” communication skills. Lori obtained her Master’s Degree in Audiology from California State

University, Los Angeles and is always gaining more and more knowledge from continuing education credits. Jacquelyn and Lori are a great addition to our team and we are excited to have their expertise.
