Dr. F. Kent Nunnally’s path to providing patient-centered medical care started with his own health scare when he was in 6th grade.
“When I was a boy I developed a massive lymph node in my neck,” Dr. Nunnally remembers. “The doctors in my small hometown in Arkansas thought it might be Hodgkin’s lymphoma – that would have been a death sentence at the time back in the late 1960s.”
Dr. Nunnally’s parents, barely in their mid 20s at the time, drove their young son to Little Rock for treatment, not knowing if he would live to see a return trip. “Dr. Stewart, the general surgeon who took care of me, made a huge impression on all of us,” Dr. Nunnally says. “I’ll never forget the care, the support, and the Christian service he gave my family in that time of crisis. I knew right then that I wanted to be a doctor.”
Dr. Nunnally received his undergraduate degree with a major in Biology from Hendrix College in Conway, Arkansas in 1983. He received his medical degree from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in 1987. Dr. Nunnally then attended the University of Florida and the University of Tennessee where he completed his training in otolaryngology in 1992.
Board-certified in otolaryngology in 1992, Dr. Nunnally has proudly served patients in the Wiregrass area for nearly 25 years. Dr. Nunnally has staff privileges at Southeast Alabama Medical Center, Flowers Hospital, and Dothan Surgery Center.
Today, Dr. Nunnally is living up to Dr. Stewart’s example. “ENT South is all about patient-centered service,” says Dr. Nunnally. “Our philosophy starts from a very simple place: We care, we’re kind, and we work for the Lord.”
Dr. Nunnally and his wife, Karen, enjoy spending much of their off time with their three grown children and two dogs. The Nunnallys are active members of Calvary Baptist Church.
Dr. Victoria Mock Taylor is a Certified Clinical Audiologist by the American Speech Language-Hearing Association.
Her passion for audiology began in childhood when she underwent a total of 10 ear related surgeries ranging from ear tubes to reconstructive surgery on her ear drums. “I remember the care and compassion my ENT and Audiologist showed me and my family, and I knew at an early age my calling was to be an Audiologist,” Dr. Taylor recalled. She believes that her childhood ear issues molded her into the caring audiologist she is today. These experiences allow her to relate to her patients and their families on a deeper level.
She is licensed by the Alabama and Florida Board of Speech Language Pathology and Audiology. Dr. Taylor obtained her B.S. in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Florida State University in Tallahassee and her Clinical Doctorate of Audiology (Au.D) from The University of South Alabama in Mobile.
Dr. Victoria studied at several large ENT practices in Mobile, Alabama and Panama City, Florida. As a result of this experiences, she brings an extensive background in diagnosing and treating both pediatric and adult patients with hearing and balance issues.
Dr. Taylor was born and raised in Marianna, FL and now resides in Dothan, AL with her husband Justin and their dog, Scout. Victoria and Justin are enjoying married life and spend time kayaking, golfing, and riding bikes.
59, Contractor, Boynton Beach, FL"I've been running saws and hammer drills for 40 years and my hearing was shot. I tried this on a whim and was really impressed. It took a little work to get the right size ear dome, but the instructions helped. Now I don't have to miss my granddaughters silly jokes anymore. I'm happy."
68, Retired Accountant, Kansas City, KS"My hearing started to go years ago but I was too proud and too poor to do anything about it. I am glad I found these, I can hear better on my bird hunting trips and my wife can watch tv with me again since the volume is back to normal."
70, Retired Teacher, Moscow, Idaho"It never occurred to me that teaching music could eventaully cause hearing loss. But a few years ago I noticed I couldn't hear certain parts of musical scores. So I had an audiologist check me out, and they wanted $7000 for hearing aids! That's just not possible on my pension. So I was thrilled to find Soundwise. These fit easily in my ear and I noticed right away a huge difference. Now I'm noticing parts of music that I hadn't heard in over 1o years. My church friends haven't even noticed I have them. I'm so happy, I came back to get my husband a pair!"
72, Power Plant Superintendent, Bakersfield, California"I was hoping to find an affordable hearing aid and these were right in my budget. I was skeptical they would do much. The first thing I did was go to my favorite lunch place. It's so noisy in there I can never hear the waitress. This time I had a very nice chat with her, and she seemed happy that I didn't make her repeat herself three and four times. I am very pleased."
