Dr. Ashley B. Thom

Dr. Ashley B. Thom

Dr. Ashley B. Thom, AuD, grew up in Abbeville, Louisiana. As a junior at LSU in a Speech Pathology class, she realized a love for speech, language, and hearing, as it relates to our sense of self. After completing a Bachelor of Arts in Communications Disorders, that love persisted, and Dr. Thom graduated in 2011 with a Clinical Doctorate in Audiology from Louisiana Tech University.

Since joining Selective Hearing in 2011, Dr. Thom continues to make sounds and language more accessible to the hearing impaired and takes pleasure in learning about each patient’s unique hearing and communication needs. When not in the office, Dr. Thom spends active family time with her husband and local nieces and nephews. She is a member of the Junior League of Lafayette where she regularly volunteers with a focus on making a better community for women and children.

Dr. Thom was an active member of the Louisiana Academy of Audiology, has served as a board member for two years, and was the 2016-17 President of LAA.

I am an Audiologist in Texas and when my best friend called to ask for a local recommendation in Lafayette for her grandmother I did not hesitate to recommend Dr. Thom. Dr. Thom has many years of experience and practices hearing aid “Best Practices” including Real Ear Measurements. My friends grandmother was elated that she was able to be seen in Crowley and their family is so grateful for the work that Dr. Thom has done for them. She is smart, kind, and professional and you will be in excellent hands in her practice. Dr. Kelly Pack, AuD

Dr. Ashley Thom is an amazing person who really cares about her patients, regardless of their background or means. She's a major resource for her community, and I wouldn't hesitate to refer a friend or family member to her.

I’ve been coming here for years now and I’m amazed every single time. The customer service, the attitudes, the knowledge, I can literally sit here and list the wonderful things about Selective Hearing and their staff. If it’s your first time ever experiencing this type of service, you will walk away with so much knowledge that you will feel like you work here. If you’re experienced and you just want a change in everything from your previous Audiologist this is the place to come. You won’t regret it from the moment you walk into the door.
