We’re excited to shine a spotlight on a key member of our team — Dr. Kurt Kalies.
He has spent three decades enriching the lives of countless patients, and he has a wealth of knowledge that fuels the practice. Dr. Kalies’ story is one of dedication, perseverance, and a passion for making a difference.
Dr. Kalies’ journey began with a bachelor’s degree from Oklahoma State University (OSU), where he first delved into the world of audiology. His commitment to learning and improving the lives of others propelled him to earn a master’s degree from the University of Oklahoma (OU). It was during this time that he honed his skills and laid the foundation for the rest of his career.
Dr. Kalies didn’t stop there. His thirst for knowledge and his want to provide the best care for his patients led him to pursue a doctorate from A.T. Still University — Arizona School of Health Sciences. This extensive education equipped him with what he needed to tackle even the most complex hearing challenges.
With over 30 years of clinical experience under his belt, Dr. Kalies is a master of his craft. His patients often describe him as a life-changer, and it’s no surprise why. He combines his vast knowledge of audiology and technology with a genuine love for people. To him, enriching the lives of his patients isn’t just a job — it’s a calling.
Outside of the clinic, Dr. Kalies has a wide array of interests. He loves the ocean, and scuba diving is his way of connecting with nature and finding some peace and focus. His passion for martial arts highlights his ideals of discipline and dedication.
Perhaps what defines Dr. Kalies most is his unwavering love for his family. He spends every moment that he can with them, and it’s this love that fuels his dedication to improving the lives of others. It’s not just about hearing — it’s about reconnecting families, enabling them to share the joys of conversation and laughter without obstacles.
At Hearing Health Care, Dr. Kalies is more than a provider — he’s a pillar of the community. His commitment to serving the Shawnee area goes beyond the clinic walls. He has proudly served as chairman of the Oklahoma Board of Examiners for Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology.
Additionally, Dr. Kalies has been an integral part of the Rotary Club, serving as its president during the club’s 100-year celebration. His involvement in community initiatives reflects his belief in giving back and making Shawnee a better place for everyone.
Dr. Kalies’ impact can be most clearly seen through the words of his patients. As one patient aptly put it, “Dr. Kalies has helped me hear better than any other place I’ve been! It’s always worth my drive from Oklahoma City.”
This kind of trust and appreciation from patients is what gets Dr. Kalies out of bed in the morning. He is committed to making a difference in the lives of those with hearing challenges and definitely walks the walk!
