Meet Our Founder & Audiologist
Dr. Kevin H. Ivory, Au.D., CCC-A
Dr. Kevin Ivory, Au.D., CCC-A received his Bachelor of Arts (Psychology) Degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He then went on to earn his Doctor of Audiology degree from Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, one of the top 10 audiology residential programs in the country. Dr. Ivory cultivated his clinical excellence through mentorship from some of the top audiologists in Chicago, in a variety of clinical settings, including busy private practices, Rush University Medical Center, Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital, Edward Hines, Jr. Veterans Administration Hospital, and Advocate Hope Children’s Hospital.
Dr. Ivory is a member of the American Academy of Audiology, American Speech-Language and Hearing Association, California Academy of Audiology, Hearing Loss Association of America, is a Certified Occupational Hearing Conservationist, and is a licensed dispensing audiologist in the state of California.
In addition to also running a premier audiology and hearing aid dispensing practice (Glendora Hearing Aids & Audiology) in Glendora, California since 2014, Dr. Ivory has been a presenter at national audiology conventions and currently serves on the 2018 Program Committee for Business and Practice Management for the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association. Dr. Ivory is currently also working on a chapter to be included in an Auditory Disorders textbook (manuscript is in preparation).
Since the Fall Quarter of 2015, Dr. Ivory has continuously been a university instructor in the Communication Disorders departments at both California State University, Los Angeles and California State University, Northridge where he teaches “Hearing Science” and “Aural Rehabilitation” courses. He is able to bring current clinical best practice standards and research findings to his practice where his patients receive personalized evidence-based care from Dr. Ivory while learning from one another. An audiology topic of interest which Dr. Ivory keeps a very close eye on is the relationship and correlations between hearing loss and early on-set dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease.
Dr. Ivory grew up in La Cañada Flintridge and is a proud alumnus of La Cañada High School. Dr. Ivory’s parents inspired him to pursue a career as an audiologist. His father (Dr. Peter Ivory) has a Ph.D. in Audiology and his mother (Dr. Susan Ivory) has a Ph.D. in Speech-Language Pathology. His parents are still practicing in their respective fields and they still live in La Cañada.
Quality of life and a healthy work/life balance are important to Dr. Ivory. That’s why, when he is not practicing audiology, he enjoys spending time with his wife, family and friends, participating and giving back to the community at local senior retirement homes, networking with other health care professionals, rooting for the Kansas Jayhawks basketball team, traveling, concerts, cooking a new recipe, hiking, and relaxing at home watching his favorite television shows with his wife.
Dr. Ivory’s direct e-mail address is: [email protected]. He encourages you to reach out to him by phone or e-mail with any questions, concerns or thoughts you might have as you embark on your journey and path towards a better quality of life through better hearing and communication.
Hear Better. Hear Life.
Recent Patient Reviews
I can highly recommend Dr. Ivory. He takes the time to fully test your hearing needs and then works with you to make sure that the product you buy is adjusted to your needs. You will be happy with his services.
I reluctantly made an appointment with this audiologist. My hesitation was not trusting in this medical review only because of other negative experiences. Immediately Dr. Ivory put me at ease with his manner and attentiveness to service to his clients, He made me feel he was in the business to provide the best professional analysis and not to just make a sale of hearing aids. My hearing has improved even though I was skeptical of my needing the aid. I highly recommend Dr.Ivory for anyone looking for a trusted person in the hearing business.
Dr Ivory has done a very good job for my hearing loss. I am so satisfied with my hearings aids.
I highly recommend his services
