Krissa Downey, Au.D., CCC-A
Krissa Downey, Au.D., has been in practice for 20 years. Dr. Downey graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2002 receiving a Master of Science degree and then began her Audiology career in Kansas City, Missouri. She then returned to Omaha in 2005 where she gained many years of clinical experience in adult and pediatric Audiology. In 2009, she completed the prestigious Doctor of Audiology program from A.T. Still University, Arizona School of Health Sciences; a division of Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine.
In 2011, Dr. Downey gained considerable knowledge in advanced electrophysiology training performing intraoperative monitoring. Working with premier Anesthesiologists and Spine Surgeons in the Omaha area, she provided real-time diagnostic information while monitoring the sensory and motor functions of spinal nerves during cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine surgery.
More recently, Dr. Downey had the pleasure of working for Drs. Gary and Iris Moore at Central Plains ENT and Audiology for the past 9 years. Her main focus was diagnostic audiology including vestibular testing, hearing aids, Cochlear Implants and BAHA surgical implants. After the well-deserved retirement of both physicians, and closure of Central Plains ENT and Audiology, Dr. Downey has transitioned her practice to Professional Hearing Center, P.C., in Omaha, NE.
Dr. Downey remains very dedicated to Audiology and feels that it is very important to give back to the profession. She has supervised University of NE-Lincoln Audiology students for the past 15 years and will continue to mentor them through their clinical Audiology placements. You will often find one of these students working with Dr. Downey during your appointment.
Dr. Downey is a native Nebraskan and has been living in Omaha most of her life. She has been married to her husband, Chris, for 10 years and they have a 9 year-old daughter, Elise. When not at work, she can be found at home relaxing with a hot cup of tea, reading, or crafting something. She also loves cooking and makes a monthly meal planner so she can continue to work full-time helping patients but also come home fully prepared to make a meal for the family she loves.
We hope you will find Dr. Downey warm and welcoming with considerable knowledge to help you decide what treatment plan will be best for you.
