Dr. Larry Giovinazzo

Dr. Larry Giovinazzo

Owner, Audiologist

My name is Larry D. Giovinazzo and as an audiologist I love to reconnect people with their families, friends and the things they love to do!

More About Dr. Giovinazzo

After watching several family members struggle with hearing loss over the years and the jokes my cousins and I made about them, I realized as I became older that it was no laughing matter.  The great challenges they encountered everyday just trying to communicate with loved ones even in the simplest form was frustrating for them as much as the ones they tried to talk to.

One of the first people I helped to enjoy life better is my cousin Nick.  Nick owns his own business.  He went from being a successful business person to considering selling it due to his hearing loss.  He was tired of the embarrassment he felt when he asked people to repeat themselves a few times, even if it was a family member, let alone a customer!  This was back in the late 90’s and Nick still has his business because of the help I was able to provide him.

I am a Niles Rotarian and believe in supporting not only our community but mankind in general.  As an audiologist I am a member of the Academy of Doctors of Audiology, the American Academy of Audiology and the Ohio Academy of Audiology.  I served as President of the Ohio Academy of Audiology from 2007-2008 in addition to several other roles for the Ohio Academy of Audiology.
My wife Amy and I spend as much of our free time we can with our two children, Vincent & Gabriella.  Family time is the most important time there is!!  We love to vacation, go camping to a variety of other outdoor activities.  My children are starting to love some of my passions of snowmobiling, riding 4 wheelers and the like, much to Mom’s dismay.  I guess kids will be kids and when I’m not at work, I’m working on being a kid again with my kids!  The smiles on their faces make the worst of the worst problems seem like nothing.

 

Dr. Kayla McKay

Dr. Kayla McKay

Audiologist

Hello! My name is Kayla McKay. I joined Audiology & Hearing Associates in January 2018 and I am so excited for the new adventure in front of me. I am dedicated to helping my patients receive the treatment they need, so they can enjoy a more positive and fulfilling lifestyle. I am devoted to ensuring the longevity of my patients’ health and developing long-lasting relationships with them.

More About Dr. McKay

I have been practicing audiology since receiving my Clinical Doctorate of Audiology in 2014, from the Northeast Ohio Au.D. Consortium (NOAC); which is a partnership of Kent State University, the University of Akron and the Cleveland Clinic. I received extensive training in Audiology from numerous different settings while completing my doctorate, including the Cleveland Hearing and Speech Center, the Cleveland VA medical center, the Cleveland Clinic as well as private practices and university clinic settings. Since graduation, I have practiced Audiology in an ENT practice and private practice settings, where I continued to learn and grow as a clinician.

Growing up with a grandmother who has had a very significant hearing loss since she was a teenager, has challenged me to be patient and compassionate with people. I have always found myself wanting to assist her and others in understanding things, as best as they can, and I believe that as an audiologist I have found a way to do that. I have learned ways to help my family and others to understand that hearing aids are only part of the process for better hearing, but that patience and understanding is also very important in facilitating productive communication.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending my time with my beagle-terrier puppy Emerald (Emmie), as well as spending time with my family and friends; including my sister’s puppy Oakley. I love being able to create things and crafting allows me to make something awesome and unique. I also enjoy watching movies and gardening with my mom.

Amanda Glunt

Amanda Glunt

Patient Care Coordinator

My name is Amanda Glunt and I’m the Patient Care Coordinator.  I have over 15 years of customer service experience. My desire is to clearly understand the needs of all our patients and ensure that their visit to our practice is a great one.

More About Amanda

I graduated from Niles McKinley in 2000. I joined Audiology & Hearing Associates in July 2012. I am the first person our patients have contact with when coming or calling into the office.  My first priority is to provide the warmest of welcomes to them and let them know I will listen to them.  I am a very caring and compassionate person in nature which I believe is a perfect fit for the needs of our patients.  I want to see them leave with a smile, be able to hear and to receive the most in their lives.  When I experience this my only thought is how priceless is that!

I never realized the struggle the hearing loss places on a person until I began working for our practice. I’ve taken all of these experiences over the years to be able to understand our patients more.  I am passionate for the work I do and I do not consider this a job because of the great enjoyment I experience from it. The satisfaction knowing all of us in the practice can make a difference in people’s lives is so rewarding.  I love hearing a patient say “they can hear again”!  It is such a good feeling when someone tells me they can hear sounds they haven’t heard in years and can hear their family with ease.  I have truly enjoyed getting to know each patient and helping them in any way I can.  I enjoy all the success stories that I receive from each patient.  I feel it’s a wonderful and gratifying experience being part of a team that is focused on and passionate about improving a patient’s quality of life through better hearing.

I enjoy my free time with my husband and 2 kids. Some of my favorite activities include: volunteering for little league football, going to the gym, traveling, trying new recipes and spending time with family and friends.

For that, I am eternally grateful to him!”

"I hear better and still have peace in the background"

“Kayla – Thanks – 

How do I tell you the difference the hearing aids make?

The peace of not having a constant ringing in my head that makes you want to hide your head under a pillow or in a hole.

The chimes been peace to my head and as you mention, I am not as up tight.

I hear better and still have the peace in the background.

I can turn down my husband’s loud TV and turn up a soft noise.”

– Dot C.

"To say he changed my life is an understatement"

“I met Dr. Giovinazzo (Dr. Larry) about a year ago, and to say he changed my life would be and understatement. My hearing aids have changed and improved my quality of life. Dr. Larry balances being professional and like being an old friend. Whenever I have a question or a problem he gets me in the office and takes care of whatever it is. Do not be afraid of getting hearing aids.”

– William E.

"Gentle, compassionate care, always friendly and courteous"

“Dr. Larry is a super hearing healthcare professional! He gives gentle, compassionate care that is always friendly and courteous. He makes me feel that I am a privileged patient. His care is extremely competent and though his business relies largely on hearing aid sales he has always provided me with “gentle guidance”, never a “hard sell” or “pushy technique”.

I have recommended to some of my friends and family who suffer from hearing loss, and will definitely continue to do so.”

– Mary C.

"Great service & staff"

– Florence E.

"Personable young man and very knowledgeable at his trade"

“Recently I was fitted for hearing aids at Audiology & Hearing Associates, Inc. in Howland, Oh. I was pleased with audiologist Larry Giovinazzo’s presentation and the question and answer time he gave me. The results I’m having with my hearing aids are wonderful, I can hear like I normally did years ago.

Hardly anyone has noticed that I am wearing hearing aids, I like my life to be as normal as possible.

My hearing has improved considerably and I feel it was worth the money spent.

Larry Giovinazzo took time to explain many aspects of hearing loss, and the different types of hearing aids available based on a person’s lifestyle. He is a personable young man and very knowledgeable at his trade. I was pleased with his ability to communicate with a “down to earth” approach, while taking time to listen and answer all of my questions. The price was reasonable and the fact that he will provide all the batteries I need for my hearing aids is what sold me. He has a friendly office environment with a very pleasant secretary as well!”

– Joseph N.

"He was very personable and listened to my needs. There was no rushing through the process of choosing a hearing device"

“After being examined by a hearing specialist, I went to Dr. Larry to inquire about a hearing aid. He was very personable and listened to my needs. There was no rushing through the process of choosing a hearing device. He told me what he believed I needed and provided me several options to choose from.

He was very helpful in showing me how to put the hearing aids in and adjusted them so they worked for me. With his help, I quickly was hearing things that I had not heard for quite sometime.

Dr. Larry never hurried me through a visit. He was patient and answered all questions or concerns.

I would highly recommend that you check with him if you are in need of hearing devices.”

– George G.

"Best practice I have ever encountered"

I have worn hearing aids for the last 20 years, both in the UK and here in the USA.

Dr. Larry’s Audiology & Hearing Associates practice is the best I have ever encountered.

Thank You Larry!!

– Stuart B.

"Knowledgeable and clearly answers any questions"

“I’ve had only good experiences with Audiology & Hearing Associates. The hearing aids are excellent. Dr. Giovinazzo is knowledgeable and clearly answers any questions. I would gladly recommend his services to anyone who is experiencing hearing loss. My hearing aids are small and very comfortable. I do not feel them when I wear them. They cut down on ‘outside’ noise and they are not visible.

– Margaret S.

"I would certainly recommend him to family and friends"

“My hearing loss had come gradual over the years. It had became apparent that I needed an aid. I was missing out on too many conversations.

I am so glad I chose Dr. Giovinazzo to meet my hearing needs and I would certainly recommend him to family and friends.

I appreciate all of the time and patience Dr. G gave to me and my husband. He made us feel very comfortable from the time he did the hearing test to answering all of our questions. He showed and explained the aids and gave us time to digest the information.

I am very satisfied with services they extend. It is a personal and relaxed atmosphere.”

– Nancy M.
