Meet the Doctors

Ely Shapiro, M.D.

I completed my undergraduate degree in biology at New York University. I graduated from New York Medical College in 1992 and was a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. I completed my otolaryngology training at the University of Southern California in 1997 and continued my training in pediatric head and neck disorders at the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles.

I am a board-certified otolaryngologist practicing general otolaryngology. I have been in private practice in southern Michigan since 1998 and am affiliated with Borgess Medical Center, Bronson Methodist Hospital, and Woodbridge Surgery Center. I see adults and children, carefully listening and providing explanations in understandable language. I treat ear and sinus disorders, swallowing and breathing difficulties, head, neck, and throat diseases as well as allergy conditions.

I am an avid wildlife photographer and enjoy traveling with my family. I am also a collector of military aviation art which is displayed around the office for patients to enjoy.

Casey Ashby, D.O.

I completed my medical school training at the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine. I finished my five years of residency training in otolaryngology and facial plastic surgery in 2012 at Botsford Hospital, a part of Michigan State University. I am a board-certified doctor of osteopathy in otolaryngology and facial plastic surgery.

I believe that people should be at the center of their care. I work with my patients to develop an individualized treatment plan that will work best for them. I will make certain to address your concerns and questions so that you leave my office with a full understanding of your medical care. While I enjoy helping people with all types of ear, nose, and throat problems, I have a special interest in helping those with hearing loss and chronic ear infections.

During my free time I love to hike around local and national parks with my wife and three boys, take care of my tropical fish and shoot aerial videos with my drone.

Martin Clinard, PA-C

I received my Master’s degree in physician assistant studies at Western Michigan University in 2003. I received my Bachelor’s degree in biomedical sciences from Grand Valley State University. I have practiced with Dr. Shapiro in otolaryngology since graduating from PA school. I belong to organizations that include the Society of Physician Assistants in Otolaryngology, the Michigan Association of Physician Assistants, and the American Academy of Physician Assistants.

Being a long time resident of the Kalamazoo area, I enjoy playing hockey and watching Western Michigan football games with my family.

Amber Berry, D.O.

I graduated from Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine, completing my residency at Beaumont Hospital in 2017.  I am a board-eligible otolaryngologist and facial plastic surgeon. I have additional surgical training using robotics technology and specialize in tongue-base surgical interventions. My focus is on improving patients’ overall care and treatment with disorders that affect upper-airway breathing, speech, and swallowing, as well as balance and hearing.

I enjoy outdoor activities such as bicycling and paddle boarding and spending time with my four-footed bestie, Woodson.

Joni Voss, M.A., F-AAA

Certified Audiologist

I graduated from Western Michigan University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Speech Pathology and Audiology and received my Master of Arts in Audiology in 1989. I am licensed in the state of Michigan and a fellow of the American Academy of Audiology.

After taking a communication disorders class in college, I decided to pursue a career in audiology. I love working with people of all ages and am experienced with all forms of testing, hearing aid evaluations and fittings, and custom specialty ear molds. I also specialize in fitting/programming bone-anchored hearing aids (BAHAs). My goal as an audiologist is to help patients hear better and bring back the sounds they have been missing.

I grew up in the Kalamazoo area and have two children. I enjoy traveling and outdoor activities such as gardening, boating, lying on the beach. I’m a proud military mother and regularly volunteer with veterans and military family support groups.

Theresa Meinert, M.S., CCC-A

Certified Audiologist

I received my Master of Science degree in Audiology from Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts, and earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Communication Disorders from Marywood University in Scranton, Pennsylvania. I am licensed in the state of Michigan and a fellow of the American Academy of Audiology. I carry a certificate of Clinical Competence in Audiology from the American Speech-Language- Hearing Association (ASHA.)

I enjoy testing and treating patients with all types of hearing impairment but have a passion for hearing aid services. I entered this profession to help people improve their lives through better hearing. I love that every day I am connecting people to not only missed sounds but life experiences.

I grew up in northeastern Pennsylvania and lived in Massachusetts and Connecticut before moving to Michigan with my husband for his corporate relocation. I enjoy spending time with my family, participating in team sports, attending my children’s music recitals and sporting events, swimming, biking, gardening, travel, and walking my dog, Oatmeal.
