Meet Daniel E. Knudsen, Au.D., F-AAA

Daniel E. Knudsen, Au.D., F-AAA brings to Fort Collins his passion for the profession of 25+ years! “Danno” spent 3 years practicing audiology in Indiana, 17 years in Alaska working within the Indian Health Service, and three years with his own private practice in Juneau.

A 2010 graduate of Salus University with the Professional Doctorate in Audiology, Dr. Knudsen hopes to build long-term relationships with the people in the Fort Collins area, and further enhance hearing care throughout Northern Colorado. Daniel earned his B.S. and M.S. in Communication Disorders from Colorado State University in 1990 and 1991, and worked with the IHS from 1992 – 2004 before venturing into private practice. He relocated back to Fort Collins after visiting CO with the love of his life, Lynda. Daniel specializes in both pediatrics and hearing aid fitting for adults. He has extensive experience in evaluating and diagnosing disorders, and fitting hearing devices for clients of all ages. He brings a wealth of experience to our offices.

While in Alaska, Dan helped initiate the Early Hearing Detection and Intervention program and worked tirelessly for 14 years until legislation was passed requiring hearing screenings for all Alaskan newborns. He was also a speaker for, and member of the Alaska Federal Healthcare Access Network teaching and promoting telemedicine throughout rural areas of Alaska. Daniel also worked closely with Alaskan legislators to bring cutting-edge hearing healthcare to rural Alaskan residents, and still maintains close contact with many people from that region.

I hope I can be an inspiration to the people of Northern Colorado as much as the folks I worked with in Alaska were to me for so many years,” said Danno. “I truly love what I do! I hope that is evident in your experience with me at Independent Audiology.  Serving northern Colorado’s hearing needs with “Knowledge” and “Integrity!”
