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 Fellow of the American Academy of Audiology, and holds his Certificate of Clinical Competency from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. He is a professional member of the 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.
Glendora Hearing Aids & Audiology has been helping patients improve their quality of lives since 2007. In addition to also running a premier audiology and hearing aid dispensing practice (La Cañada Aids & Audiology) in La Cañada, California, 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’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.
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.

Absolutely best place around for all your hearing needs. Before finding Glendora Hearing Aids, my father (83 y/o) had gone to another place, that was referred by his primary physician and it was a disaster. My father was so disappointed in that other office he said he wasn't going to do anything.
Luckily I found Dr. Ivory. This office went above and beyond explaining to my father his options for his hearing loss, insurance coverage, etc.
After his hearing aids arrived they were patient in explaining how to maintain them, connect them to his phone and reviewed all the features available.
If you think all audiologist are the same, I'm here to tell you they are not! Instead of shopping around, save yourself time and come here first. You will not be disappointed. I may sound like a sales pitch- but that's how much we love this office. Nothing like a satisfied customer.
Came in here for a routine hearing test, Dr. Ivory was quick, professional and had me in and out compared to most ENTs.
He was patient answered all my questions and pricing was fair.
His sound proof room was better then the last place I was tested, and provided a comprehensive report for me to take home.
Most likely will be returning for custom ear plugs in the future.
I recently purchased a pair of custom in-ear monitors from 64 Audio and this was one of the recommended audiologists to get my impressions done, and now I know why.
Dr. Ivory was incredibly nice, and even did my impressions more than once to ensure that they would be approved by 64 Audio.
10/10 will come here again if I need anything done by an audiologist.
I have to say I was extremely happy and surprised how well I was treated by Dr Ivory. His very caring and took the time to explain how he could help me even when I was actually being rude because my insurance said they wouldn't cover anything yet he found away to help. He went out of his way to be kind. Very grateful and highly recommend
Dr. Ivory is the best! He was really patient with my 90 year old Mom and 93 year old Dad. He went above and beyond to get her hearing back in order instead of sending her back to her original Dr. Highly recommend him and his practice. His receptionist is very helpful also . I love Doctors and staff that care about the patients!
I took my father in law here to inquire about hearing aids. Dr. Ivory and his staff were very friendly and took us in even tho we did not have any insurance. After the hearing test, we debated on hearing aids, but eventually decided to hold off. Dr. Ivory not only understood our financial situation, he even gave us our exam papers for free. Very kind and helpful, he gave the feeling that he really cared about my father in law's hearing.
I was very pleased with California Hearing aids. Both my finance' and I purchased hearing aids and the staff and Doctor Ivory were very efficient and friendly. I needed to return for a minor adjustment and it was quick and effective. I surely recommend Dr Ivory for your hearing need.
Kevin Ivory was very helpful and found the right hearing aids for us and we are very happy with the result. We needed a few adjustments after the initial fitting and Kevin gave us all the attention we required. When we have a problem, he is happy to do whatever is necessary without question. We recommend Dr Ivory.
