Dr. Shannon returned to school, earning his Doctorate of Audiology (Au.D.) from the University of Louisville, Kentucky. He then began his career at the Veterans Administration National Center for Rehabilitative Auditory Research (NCRAR) in Portland, Oregon, where he helped develop and improve diagnostic testing, treatment devices, and management services for veterans with hearing loss, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), and auditory processing problems. Upon returning to New York, Dr. Shannon joined Dr. Loavenbruck at Hudson Valley Audiology with the intent of providing the highest level of hearing healthcare to his patients in Rockland County and the surrounding community.
