While our practice is located in La Cañada, we have many patients that drive from Pasadena to be treated in our office. Here are the top 5 reasons people choose to commute to our office for their hearing healthcare:
We have a Doctor of Audiology
Not everyone realizes this, but there are 2 different types of hearing care providers; Hearing Aid Dispensers and Audiologists.

Hearing Aid Dispensers, also known as Hearing Instrument Specialists, are not required to have a degree in hearing sciences. In fact, many states only require a high school diploma, some training and the ability to pass a test about hearing aids.
Audiologists, on the other hand, have received an education on hearing loss through their respective universities. Some Audiologists have Masters degrees, while others have a professional doctorate in the discipline of audiology - an AuD. Dr. Kevin Ivory has a doctorate in Audiology from Rush University Medical Center and has been an instructor at both California State University, Los Angeles and California State University, Northridge.

Dr. Ivory is the only Best Practice Pro Certified Audiologist in the Pasadena area
[UPDATE - Best Practice Pro is now the Hearing Up Provider Network]
Choosing an Audiologist that follows best practices is key to a life transforming hearing care experience. That is why Dr. Cliff Olson of YouTube has evaluated clinics and their commitment to following these important procedures.
Dr. Ivory is one of less than 30% of hearing care providers that follows these best practices and routinely uses Real-Ear Measures when programming hearing aids and never “guesses” the prescription. Choosing a Dr. Cliff-approved 'Best Practices Pro" provider ensures you will receive hearing care that includes Best Practices.
We carry all of the major hearing aid brands (not just one)
Many hearing aid clinics in Pasadena only offer one brand of hearing aid. La Canada Hearing Aids & Audiology is proud to offer all of the major hearing aids brands, including Oticon, Starkey, Resound, Phonak and more.
We have over 200 reviews with a near-perfect rating
We are proud to have so many great testimonials from our patients on Google, Facebook and Yelp. Knowing that others have had success in their hearing journey is and important consideration when researching hearing care.
We are a short drive from Pasadena (and have free & easy parking)
