Meet Dr. Al Turri, Au.D. Founder and Director
Al Turri, Au.D., founded Harmony Hearing Centers on July 1, 2009. As clinic director, Dr. Turri assesses and treats hearing, tinnitus and balance disorders.
Born in Rochester, N.Y., Dr. Turri moved to Miami, FL with his family at the age of 6.
His interest in audiology and hearing therapy was planted at an early age, although indirectly, when the shy 8-year-old was referred to therapy for a speech problem.
"Speech therapy cured me and I haven't stopped talking since," Dr. Turri explained with a smile.
Seven years after he graduated from the University of South Florida with a degree in social sciences, he decided to sell his small wholesale/retail flower business that put him through college to become a speech pathologist and enrolled in USF's graduate school. But his speech therapy ambitions abruptly changed after taking a required course in its "sister" profession audiology. That was it! Dr. Turri was hooked and changed his major, graduating with a master of science degree in audiology in 2001.
Dr. Turri went on to complete his doctorate in audiology from the School of Audiology at the Pennsylvania College of Optometry. It was during this time that Dr. Turri met his wife, Christiane, also an audiologist, in Salt Lake City at a 2004 audiology conference. They were married nine months later.
A reformed skydiver with more than 600 jumps, Dr. Turri traded his parachute gear for a triple wide infant carrier and spends most of his free time with his wife and three daughters; 4 year old Gabriella and 3 year old twins, Julianna and Cecilia.
