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.

Dr. Emily Raway

Dr. Emily Raway

AuD

Dr. Emily believes it’s never too early or too late to treat hearing loss. She works to identify the ear condition in order to make the most positive impact by getting the right fitting for each unique patient and strongly advocates for hearing protection and conservation. She enjoys watching patient’s faces light up after they are fit with new hearing devices and they can hear a loved one’s voice clearly or enjoy a dinner out and not struggle to hear conversations for the first time in a while.

Dr. Emily received her doctorate degree from the Northeast Ohio Audiology Consortium and attended the University of Akron for her undergraduate degree in Speech and Hearing Science. Before joining Audiology Concepts in 2018, she worked at Toledo ENT, the Cleveland Clinic and the Veterans Health Administration.

Dr. Emily lives in St. Paul with her husband Kenny and son Patrick. In her free time she enjoys gardening, renovating her home, going to live theater, eating out, cooking, spending time with friends and family, wine tasting and walking the many Minnesota parks.
