Daniel Gardner – Audiologist Profile

I was raised in Florida with 4 brothers and one sister. I was introduced to Audiology while serving in the US Navy during the Vietnam conflict. After discharge from the Navy I returned to the University of South Florida where I earned my audiology masters degree in 1975. Since then I’ve served in a variety of environments including nonprofit clinics, manufacturing, hospitals, doctors’ offices and private practice. I returned to the Tampa Bay area in 1982 and started Gardner Audiology. My passion for audiology comes from the great pleasure I receive from helping people hear. Our employees and patients are my extended family. I also enjoy kayaking, airplanes, bicycling, photography, and exotic birds. My wife Jacki and I have one daughter and 3 grandchildren.
