Choosing the right Audiologist is key to a life-transforming hearing care experience. For those looking for a new hearing care provider, we've put together a list of reasons why you should consider our practice for your hearing healthcare needs.
We are the only Dr. Cliff Approved Clinic in La Canada Flintridge
Many hearing aid consumers are aware of Dr. Cliff Olson from his popular YouTube channel, DrCliffAuD. Dr. Cliff not only reviews hearing products, but he also promotes Audiology Best Practices. Dr. Ivory is proud to be a Dr. Cliff Approved provider. This means he has completed a thorough 1 on 1 vetting process with Dr. Cliff himself to verify that he follows best practices in patient care. Dr. Ivory is one of less than 30% of hearing care providers that follows best practices and routinely uses Real-Ear Measures when programming hearing aids and never “guesses” the prescription. Choosing a Dr. Cliff approved provider ensures you will receive hearing care that includes Best Practices.

We offer a wide variety of hearing aid brands
Due to financial obligations, some hearing aid centers can only offer hearing aids from one brand. At La Canada Hearing Aids & Audiology, we offer hearing aids from all of the major manufacturers, including Starkey, Oticon, Phonak, Signia, Widex, Resound and Unitron. This means that Dr. Ivory has access to many different technologies to better help you and find the right product(s) for your specific situation.

We offer Telehealth and virtual care options
The Coronavirus pandemic has made in-person visits more challenging for some individuals, especially those at higher risk and with pre-existing conditions. Thankfully, Dr. Ivory can often make remote programming adjustments virtually, without the patient ever having to step foot in our clinic. Many patients appreciate the flexibility and convenience of these tele-health options.
