Kristin Koch, Au.D.

Clinical Audiologist/Owner

Dr. Koch, Owner and Audiologist, received her doctoral degree in Audiology from A.T. Still University in 2012. Her Bachelors and Masters degrees were both awarded from Western Michigan University. Dr. Koch has been an Audiologist for more than 20 years. She is a member of the Academy of Doctors of Audiology (ADA), the Audiology Practice Standards Organization (APSO) and serves as a preceptor for Audiology doctoral students. Dr. Koch is also on the board of the Speech-Language-Hearing Association of Virginia (SHAV), serving as Vice President for Audiology. After working with Ear Nose & Throat physicians in the Culpeper area for many years, she made the decision to open her own independent private practice in Charlottesville in 2012. She has been very active in the community, including the Chamber of Commerce and local Elder Care Professionals groups.

Dr. Koch and her husband, Drew, grew up in Michigan, spent time living in Columbia, South Carolina, and moved to Charlottesville in 2005. Dr. Koch’s husband is the Associate Director of Bands at the University of Virginia. They are both active in the community and on Grounds at UVA. Their two young children, dogs and a small flock of chickens keep them busy at home.

Dr. Koch enjoys properly fitting people with hearing loss following best practices, including the newest testing procedures and different verification tools, including Real Ear measurements. A person’s hearing loss is more often than not noticed by those people around the patient on a day-to-day basis. She greatly appreciates when patients involve their spouses, family members and/or friends in the process. The whole experience is enriched tremendously when approached using a team philosophy. Dr. Koch has received the “Best Bedside Manner Award” in Audiology from OurHealth Magazine for many years, along with other awards as an Audiologist and practice owner of Evolution Hearing.
