Dr. Tom Killeen moved to the beautiful Reno/Tahoe area in 2008, after successfully practicing for more than 20 years in the Central Valley of California. Dr. Killeen came to Reno at the request of his longtime friend and residency colleague, Dr. Tim Dyches, who retired after answering the call to serve his church. Dr. Killeen is honored to have the opportunity to care for the patients of Northern Nevada and proud to be a part of the Reno ENT community.
After three years in Dr. Dyches' office location, Dr. Killeen relocated the practice in November 2011. Joining Nevada ENT & Hearing Associates, Dr. Killeen is now able to provide his patients with on-site services of hearing testing, hearing aid dispensing, and diagnostic CAT scans in a modern and spacious facility.
During his tenure in California, Dr. Killeen served as Chairman of the Surgery Department at Memorial Medical Center in Modesto for 12 years, and was actively involved in the state and local medical societies. Throughout his career, Dr. Killeen has always been committed to maintaining a state-of-the-art practice and has attended numerous courses and conferences to remain current on the latest techniques and technological advances in the field of Otolaryngology. In 2008, he voluntarily underwent recertification by the American Board of Otolaryngology, successfully passing the “Boards” on his first attempt. Dr. Killeen was amongst the first currently board-certified ENT physicians in the country to achieve recertification mid-career, demonstrating continued excellence and proficiency in this specialty.
