Shonda Bailey, Au.D., CCC-A, FAAA

Doctor of Audiology

Dr. Shonda Bailey has been practicing audiology for 20 years. She graduated cum laude from the University of Kansas in 1998 with a Bachelor’s degree in Speech-Language and Hearing. She graduated magna cum laude from the University of Kansas Medical Center in 2001 with a Master of Arts in Audiology. In 2008, she earned her Doctorate in Audiology, graduating summa cum laude from Salus University. She holds a Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC-A) from the American Speech-Hearing Association and is a Fellow of the American Academy of Audiology (FAAA).

As a native of Kansas City, KS (Go Chiefs!), she practiced audiology in Kansas City for 11 years before trading Kansas City winters for the warmth of southeast Florida. After practicing in Florida for 5 years, Dr. Bailey decided to relocate to the Atlanta area to be closer to family.

In addition to her experience in ENT offices, she has practiced in a variety of clinical settings, including the V.A. hospital, a pediatric hospital, and the school district. Throughout her career, she has developed an exceptional background in hearing device fitting and orientation. Dr. Bailey prides herself on prioritizing quality patient care, relationship building and patient satisfaction. She attributes the high-level of patient care and satisfaction to providing Evidence-Based Best Practices. For this reason, she is excited to align with Dr. Cliff’s network and his mission to make Evidence-Based Best Practices, not the exception, but the standard of care.
