Dr. Krasnick brings a very unique combination of education and experience to the field of audiology. Prior to pursuing his doctoral degree in audiology at the City University of New York, Dr. Krasnick leveraged his bachelor’s degree in music and audio engineering from the University of Massachusetts into a career as a professional sound engineer. Dr. Krasnick quickly became skilled at working with sound in a wide variety of applications, ranging from the recording studio to the concert stage. This diverse range of experiences has given him an intimate knowledge of how people from all walks of life and different professions interact with sound. While his doctoral degree in audiology equipped him with a deep understanding of the physiology of the human auditory system and the treatment of hearing loss, it is his years of working at the intersection between sound and people that differentiates him from other hearing providers. Dr. Krasnick has an uncanny ability for listening to how the hearing impaired describe their problems with sound and hearing aids, and can quickly identify and address any problems when they arise. Dr. Krasnick refined and developed this unique combination of education and experience during his residency with the Manhattan Veterans Administration Medical Center, quickly becoming a highly-skilled and sought after clinician. After this successful residency, Dr. Krasnick has worked in the practice of a prominent otolaryngologist, as well for another nationally known hearing care provider.
