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.

Grace Leland

Grace Leland

Patient Care Coordinator

Grace graduated from Minnetonka High School in 2018 where I was immersed in all things band- marching band, pep band, pit orchestra, curricular band. I am currently enrolled at Normandale Community College majoring in chemistry. She enjoys baking, reading, watching movies with my fiancé, and snuggling with my 2 cats. She is a big Disney and Star Wars Fan but mostly she is a huge Marvel fan. She chose Audiology because she likes to do things that will make a positive impact on people’s lives and knowing that she helped make a difference in any way is one of the best feelings 😊 I also really enjoy ASL and wanted a career where I would be able to use it more often.
