Our Physicians

Our physicians work out of NW Iowa ENT but Jorgensen Hearing Center works very closely with the following physicians


Daniel L. Jorgensen M.D

Daniel Jorgensen
Daniel L. Jorgensen M.D grew up in Storm Lake, Iowa and graduated in the class of 1967. He enlisted in the army and was posted in Germany where he trained as an optician. Before going overseas he married Barbara Brander. After serving 3 years in the army he returned to the States and enrolled at Valparaiso University. He was a student athlete who played football all four years before graduating as a mechanical engineer. While at Valparaiso he and Barb had their first two children, Lisa and Seth. The four of them moved to Iowa City where he studied medicine and then went on to specialize in Otolaryngology. While at the University of Iowa, he and Barb had two more children Luke and Sarah. They moved to Spencer in 1983 and have lived in this community ever since. Dr. Jorgensen opened NW Iowa ENT in a small, white house across the street from Spencer Hospital. They were already expecting their final and fifth child, Ben, when they arrived in Spencer. When the hospital added on, he moved the clinic to the current location on the corner of tenth and grand. In 1985, he took his first trip to Alaska. He fell in love with the state and has gone fishing there every year. He has gone from deckhand to captain of his own small fleet of boats. He commercial fishes for salmon and his latest venture is arranging trips for others to experience the Alaska he loves. Besides his obvious love of fishing and the outdoors, he enjoys golf and racquetball.
