Shanai Hill, Au.D., CCC-A

Dr. Shanai Hill is an audiologist at Florida Gulf Coast Ear, Nose and Throat. It has been nearly 12 years that she, along with her husband Dr. Samuel Hill, started the audiology department at Florida Gulf Coast Ear, Nose and Throat. Prior to this, Dr. Shanai Hill practiced pediatric audiology at the Children's Hospital of Michigan in Detroit where she was a lead audiologist on the Cochlear Implant Team. She also worked with a Private Practice ENT in Detroit performing adult hearing and vestibular evaluations. Dr. Hill obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Disorders degree from Michigan State University. She then finished a Masters of Science degree in Audiology at Wayne State University. Finally, she obtained a Doctor of Audiology degree from the University of Florida. Altogether, Dr. Hill has been diagnosing and treating audiovestibular disease for over 18 years.

Billy T. Crooks

Billy T. Crooks joined the practice in May, 2015. Billy worked as a popular radio air-personality while obtaining a degree in Marketing from Michigan State University. A native of Mid-Michigan, Billy's musical influences moved him around the country living in St. Louis, New York City, and Nashville. After running his own real estate appraisal company for 11 years in Michigan, Billy decided he wanted to try something new and get away from the cold weather.

Billy's curiosity to "see how things work" since he was a kid taking apart electronics (and often repairing them) coupled with his vast music and sound knowledge made him a perfect candidate for the audiology field. Billy worked with many bands as a sound engineer in Michigan, as well as a major studio in New York City. His longtime friend, Dr. Hill, invited him to move down to sunny Southwest Florida and take over running operations at Florida Gulf Coast Hearing Center. After completing studies with The International Hearing Society, a rigorous training process, and passing a state test, Billy became an official Hearing Aid Specialist.

When not in the office, Billy enjoys playing guitar and recording in his home studio, sports, traveling, and catching up with family and friends.
