  • This clinic is fantastic. I went in for impressions to make custom earphones and the service was spectacular. My doctor was not finished until she was satisfied that they were done right and made several attempts to make it happen. The price was right too!

  • Lori changed my life and I'm forever grateful! I knew I had hearing loss but lived with it for 25 years. My husband finally convinced me to see an ENT and Lori worked with her office. I went in thinking I was only missing little noises... wow. When she put my hearing aids in, I was blown away with the grand cacophony off noise! Sirens, studded tires, even rain on the roof!! I cried. Lori cried with me.

    That was 10 years ago and I'm on my second set of hearing aids. Yes I'm still losing my hearing, but thanks to Lori, Will and Sharon at Sound Audiology, I'm not missing out on life anymore!!!

    She also had my husband hearing again after years of shooting. Thank you,

  • I suggest Sound Audiology & Hearing Aids in Walla Walla for all your hearing aid needs. The owner Lori Lovato treats you as if she has known you for years. Even if it is your first time in their office. She listens to your needs and offers solutions. She makes sure the product she sells you performs the way you need it to. Her office manager Edy does a terrific job. She calls you a day or two ahead of your appointment to remind you. I can't say enough good about the way I was treated. I'll be back again.

  • I took my 95 year old father to get help for his hearing. Lori went out of her way to meet us after I flew in from Arizona. She spent a lot of time setting up his new hearing aids & make them match his hearing loss. Since we bought them She has went to the Veterans Home where Dad lives & readjusted them to help Dad even hear better. I would highly recommend Sound Audiology to anyone !!

  • Very professional, helpful, and friendly. Was having issues with hearing aids, the volume wouldn't work and the aids were out of warranty. Not making the parts anymore. I paid $3k for these 6 years ago and now I can't get them fixed? What...buy a new pair? "I don't think so, Tim."

    First Sound Audiology kept them overnight to see what the problem was and figured out the problem. Sound Audiology called the manufacturer (who I was told - doesn't do repairs inn sets this old. Not true. Sound Audiology got me squared away for a very reasonable fee. The place I bought them from and a different audiology business told me there was nothing they could do. Of course not, you're too stupid.

    Go to Sound Audiology. They know what's up! Got back my hearing aids in about 9 days. I was told and was expecting about 2 weeks. At $300 per device I told them to just fix the one that adjusts the volume UP. There was some sort of misunderstanding, because both devices got repaired like new and SA only charged me for one. 5 stars!

  • I recently experienced hearing loss and needed hearing aids. I met with several Audiologists in the Tri-Cities but was not impressed with any of them until I found Sound Audiology in Kennewick.

    The staff is caring, patient, and very knowledgeable. I was fitted within a week and have experienced superior customer service. Best of all I can hear again. Special thanks to Lori and her staff.

  • I had such a great experience! The office was so beautiful and calming, and Lori knew exactly what I needed (even though I only gave her my best guess of what I wanted). She is so knowledgeable, and I felt so positive every time I went. The staff is very friendly, the prices are very fair, and Lori is an extremely trustworthy expert. I couldn’t recommend them more highly! My sincere thanks to Sound Audiology for a great product that will really improve my quality of life for the next several years.

  • Hi my name is Corbin, I am ten years old. Lori helped me get the best hearing aid for my ear about three years ago. I did not like it at first, but I now understand that it helps me hear my teachers and my mom. I love going to see Lori, she is my favorite doctor. She always takes care of my ears and my hearing aid and helps me hear everything better. I would definitely tell other kids to come give her a try.

    Kennewick, WA
  • Great place to go for hearing aids! Dr. Lovato is very knowledgeable and good at what she does, she even mixes in a bit of humor.

  • Great experience from beginning to end! The staff was FANTASTIC!

  • To be honest, I didn't know what to expect when I made the appointment. I was just going to see how bad my hearing was and nothing else. My life was ok just the way it was. We were warmly greeted when we first arrived and waited maybe 5 minutes before Lori took us back. She was very energetic and knowledgeable.

    I went into the booth and thought it was going to be just like several of the hearing tests I'd had in the past (press the button when you hear the beep, in and out in 5 minutes). Nope. She was VERY thorough. Once she got the results of the tests she explained them to my wife and I in clear, concise terms that made sense. I had extreme hearing loss in one ear and severe hearing loss in the other, aka- I was deaf maybe my wife was right.

    Anyway, Lori was very excited to show us our options. She fitted me with a 'trial pair' of hearing aids. And these were not the huge clunky hearing aids I have grown up seeing my grandparents wear. You can't even see them, which was HUGE for me. I didn't want to be the 35 year old guy in the room with big bulky hearing aids. She starts you out at 65% because it takes your brain a while to compute sounds that it hasn't heard for a while, which in my case was about 10 years. I have to say, it was nothing short of amazing.

    After reviewing our options with insurance (which covered the majority of the cost), we were signing some paperwork and I heard her ring 'clink' against the table. She and my wife seemed totally oblivious to it and that's all I could focus on. It may not seem like a big deal, but it's been a long time since I heard anything in that frequency. My wife and I have struggled because if she looks away from me (like out the car window) I could never hear what she was saying. Now, her voice sounded clearer, sharper. She turned away from me and I could actually HEAR what she was saying. That was crazy. Since then, just about every aspect of my life has improved my relationship with my 4 year old daughter has improved because I can actually hear and understand what she is saying. My mood has improved. I didn't realize how much I was missing before.

    It's gotten to the point that I get a headache and grumpy if I don't have them in because not being able to hear is a big deal. Lori gradually increased the intensity and never pushed me to do more than I could handle. It is definitely life changing. All of that has been possible with Lori's help and guidance. I would recommend her to anyone. Thank you for everything!

  • Dr. Losey Lovato has been nothing but a blessing to me in my search for a pair of hearing aids that fit my lifestyle. I came to SOUND Audiology and Hearing Aids at the beginning of the year to look for a new pair of hearing aids since It was time for an upgrade (my last pair was purchased in 2005!) Lori set me up with a new pair of ReSound hearing aids, a pair of hearing aids that have the ability to connect to my cell phone via Bluetooth. I have been completely blown away by how this pair of hearing aids have dramatically increased the quality of my life, and even more so how they have presented new opportunities for me!

    Dr. Lovato's expertise on different brands of hearing aids (such as the pros and cons, software type, lifestyle, fit) is, in my opinion, very valuable. Lori was able to adjust the settings on my hearing aids to help me hear more comfortably in louder settings (like a restaurant or at a baseball game) by cancelling out unwanted background chatter. I noticed these changes immediately when my family went out to eat at a very noisy restaurant and I was able to understand everything they were saying without any background interference from other patrons. It felt incredible to be able to hear! I confidently recommend friends and family to Lori as she always knows what will be the most beneficial for different people's lifestyles.

    The relationships that I have made at SOUND Audiology and Hearing aids are absolutely wonderful; the staff is lovely and the service is exceptional. I have never had any issues scheduling any appointments or getting in contact with them. It is always a pleasure knowing that I am in the presence of friends when I get my check-ups.

    I can't express how blessed I am to have Dr. Lori Losey Lovato as my audiologist, and I encourage everyone who needs hearing aids or even a hearing test to take your "journey to hearing well" with her at SOUND Audiology and Hearing Aids. I am so thankful we have such a wonderful audiologist in the Tri Cities!

  • When I've gone, they have been professional and personable, Lori is cheerful , and yet seriously informative. I'll be going back.

  • I had an absolutely amazing experience at SOUND Audiology and Hearing! The new building is renovated and gorgeous, and the service was exceptional. Lori was able to connect me with a new pair of ReSound hearing aids, and they have just been absolutely wonderful -- a real improvement to my hearing and my lifestyle. Lori has done such a good job of finding a type of hearing aid that matches my lifestyle more proficiently than just any type of hearing aid. She has done her research on the pros and cons of different brands, styles etc; to me, her expertise is so incredibly important when picking out a new pair of hearing aids.

    I appreciate the personal relationships that are built between Lori Lovato and her patients at SOUND A&H. I have called the office several times to ask questions or seek advice regarding my hearing, and they are always happy to provide an answer. I have always felt valued and important with Lori.

    I can't wait to see how SOUND A&H can help our community in the Tri-Cities! I have been with quite a few different Audiologists throughout my life, and I can confidently say that Lori has by far been the most helpful and genuine!

  • Lori has been my audiologist for several years now. She outfitted me with my first set of hearing aides and recently set me up with a new pair of state of the art devices. Anyone can sell me a product, but Lori's attentive care to her patients is unmatched. Her knowledge coupled with her dedication to her patients is why she'll be my audiologist for life.
