About Us

Dr. Katie Gamerl


Born and raised on a farm in Norfolk, I am excited to serve the hearing needs of my hometown and its surrounding communities.  I earned my Bachelor's and Master's Degrees from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and my Doctorate in Audiology from A.T. Still University.  I have eighteen years of experience working in audiology private practice.  My specialties are diagnosing hearing loss, hearing aid fittings, and communication strategies.  I am looking forward to assisting you on your journey to better hearing.

As an undergraduate student, my goal was to have a career in a health field.  The specific field was uncertain to me until one day when speaking with Dr. Honke's wife, Mary.  She suggested that I visit with Dr. Honke about Audiology.  As soon as she spoke the words, I knew in my heart that I was on the right path.  I shadowed Dr. Honke and found the career that I desired.  Audiology is a field where I build connections with my patients and make a true impact on their quality of life.  I feel blessed everyday that I spend with my patients.
