Dr. Rachel Allgor

Dr. Rachel Allgor

AuD

Dr. Rachel is dedicated to giving her patients excellent service by staying current in evidence-based best practices of diagnostics, amplification fitting, tinnitus/hyperacusis/misophonia treatment and hearing protection.

“I believe I’ve been given a unique perspective on audiology because I wear a hearing device every day. Between my history of growing up going to audiologists and my education, I believe I’ve been able to observe and learn what a great Audiologist should be like. I strive towards that daily. My goal is to help patients in the way they need it; a tailor fit for each individual.”

Dr. Rachel joined Audiology Concepts in 2016 as a graduate student. After graduating from A.T. Still University in 2017, she joined the team full time. She received her undergraduate degree from Minnesota State University Moorhead and is originally from Hastings, MN.

Outside of the office, you can find Dr. Rachel spending time with her family, on the tennis court, participating in church activities and volunteering at The Zephyr Theatre.
