About High Level
Meet Our Founder & CEO
High Level Speech & Hearing Center was founded in 2016 by Audiologist, Dr. Lana Joseph. Dr. Joseph's passion for speech and hearing stemmed from years of being bullied due to her own speech impediment, as a young girl. Since 2016, Dr. Joseph and her team of 14 doctors and speech therapists, and 13 support staff members, have provided speech and hearing services to over 20,000 individuals within the Greater New Orleans area. High Level has been recognized locally and nationally as a top leader in Speech Therapy, Hearing Aids, Dizziness, and Mobile Screening Services. High Level has received raving patient satisfaction reviews on Google, Facebook, and Healthy Hearing. Most recently, High Level Speech Therapists received recognition as the top speech therapists in New Orleans. Dr. Joseph herself was recognized as an overcomer in Forbes and as 2018 Person of the Year by Biz Magazine.

According to statistics, nearly 1 in 12 children ages 3–17 has had a disorder related to voice, speech, language, or swallowing in the past 12 months. However, there is a serious shortage in Speech and Hearing Professionals to treat and care for the growing number of people suffering from communication disorders. For this reason, High Level has teamed up with several universities to provide teaching and training opportunities for Clinical Fellowship Year Speech Language Pathologists and Resident 4th Year Audiologists.
