After a distinguished public service career in law enforcement, Kirk Josvai decided to follow his true passion and became an Audiologist. Dr. Josvai earned his Doctor of Audiology degree from Central Michigan University and completed his internship at Western Michigan ENT in Ludington, Michigan before joining the staff at Pee Dee Speech and Hearing in the spring of 2020. He also holds additional degrees from Central Michigan University and Indiana University.
Communication is the motivating factor that guides Dr. Josvai’s style of practice. He believes that comfortable, open, and honest dialogue with patients is the best means to achieve a thorough understanding and truly help them improve their ability to communicate.
Dr. Josvai lives in Florence with his wife, Connie, a math teacher with Florence School District One. Originally from Northern Michigan, they relocated to the South to enjoy the warm temperatures, and the warm people, of the Pee Dee.
