L. Brooks Gore, Ph.D.

After obtaining his bachelor’s degree from Old Dominion University in 1971, Dr. L. Brooks Gore embarked on his professional journey. Following two years of work experience, he enrolled in the audiology master’s program at the University of Virginia and completed his studies in 1974. Driven by his passion for audiology, he chose to pursue a Ph.D. in the field and successfully earned his doctoral degree from UVA in 1977.


From 1977 to 1980, Dr. Gore served as an assistant professor of surgery (audiology) at the University of Louisville Medical School. However, his affinity for the ocean beckoned him back to the East Coast, where he assumed the role of executive director at the Southeastern Speech and Hearing Center.


In 1995, Dr. Gore departed from his position and joined his wife, Dr. Susan Evans Gore in their private practice. Although they are both actively engaged in the practice, they no longer directly see patients. Their commitment to their mission remains unwavering at Coastal Hearing Centers, where they have meticulously selected exceptional providers and staff to cater to all patient needs.


Throughout his career, Dr. Gore has found fulfillment in various aspects of audiology, with a particular interest in hearing devices and balance disorders. The entire team at Coastal Hearing Centers shares a dedicated commitment to treating every patient with the utmost care, employing professional expertise, respect, and compassionate service in line with their own expectations of care.
