Meet our Audiologists

At Lakeside Audiology, we want every patient to leave feeling they received top-notch hearing care wrapped in genuine conversation and knowledge.

Kim Block Audiologist

Kim Block, AuD, BC, PASC

Doctor of Audiology

Dr. Block opened Lakeside Audiology in 2015 after realizing the void of care that existed within the greater Charlotte community for patients who seek more answers and a caring, supportive environment. Since then she has worked tirelessly to build a space where people of any age with hearing loss and hearing concerns can seek the care they deserve. She and her staff provide extensive services in behavioral and electrophysiological hearing evaluation, management of hearing loss through amplification and rehabilitation, cochlear implant programming and follow-up care, and contract educational audiology services. She is Board Certified in Audiology and holds Specialty Certification in Pediatric Audiology. Dr. Block is licensed to practice audiology in both North and South Carolina.

Dr. Block graduated from the University of Maryland’s Doctoral program for Audiology in 2006. Her experience has included working at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland, Providence Health System in Portland, Oregon, and prior to opening her own practice, at Cornerstone Ear, Nose & Throat in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Dr. Block and her husband are residents of Tega Cay, where they are raising their three school-age daughters. Their family enjoys outdoor recreation, including biking, hiking and time out on Lake Wylie. They are committed to their early-morning workouts and have a passion for cooking good, wholesome, healthy food. Above all else, they realize that every day is a gift, and intend to live each day as such.
