Dr. Kurt F. Smith
Board Certified Audiologist, Owner
Dr. Kurt F. Smith was inspired to become an audiologist because of the difficulties he saw his own mother go through with hearing loss. Dr. Smith is a Board Certified Audiologist who has been helping people hear better for over 20 years. Dr. Smith earned his Bachelor of Science degree from Wichita State University in 1994. He continued on at Wichita State University, earning his Master of Arts degree in 1996. Not long after, Dr. Smith made a decision to continue his education, earning his Doctor of Audiology degree in 2003 from the Arizona School of Health Sciences.
“I saw how hearing loss affected my mom’s interaction with employees she managed. I saw how the stress mounted when one employee threatened her because of this unseen disability. Living with a person with hearing loss is difficult. Understanding hearing loss and how to cope with it is what got me interested in this profession.” – Dr. Smith
While working on his Thesis in 1995: Gulf War Syndrome and the Auditory Brainstem Response: A Pilot Study, Dr. Smith also held an externship at the VA Medical Center in Wichita, Kansas. Shortly thereafter, Dr. Smith went on to practice in West Palm Beach, FL from 1996 through 2001, when, due to his wife’s parent’s health issues, returned to Colorado Springs, Colorado to practice audiology. After nine years in private practice in Colorado Springs, Dr. Smith went on to open his own private practice in June of 2010 to better serve patients with hearing loss. Prior to his current career as an audiologist, Dr. Smith served honorably in the United States Air Force. Dr. Smith was born and raised in Denver, Colorado. Dr. Smith has three sons: Caleb, Ian and Logan. He and Carol have been married for 30 years.
