Meet Dr. Leigh Smith
Dr. Leigh Smith
Originally from Rhode Island, Dr. Smith first became interested in hearing health after completing coursework for her Bachelor’s degree in Communication Science Disorders at the University of Rhode Island. While there, she completed an internship at Rhode Island Hospital, the teaching hospital for Brown University. During her undergraduate training she was introduced to electrophysiological and vestibular testing such as Auditory Brainstem Response testing (ABR), and Video Nystagmography (VNG) as well as observing cochlear implant surgeries and assisting with inter-operative monitoring. After completing her Bachelor’s degree, Dr. Smith was accepted into the Doctor of Audiology program at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center. While studying in Texas she worked in a variety of settings including hospitals, school systems, ENT clinics, and private hearing aid practices. Dr. Smith graduated from Texas Tech in 2016 after completing her clinical residency in Rochester, New York, and specializes in adult hearing aid fittings and patient advocacy. Recognized as one of the nation’s leading adult amplification specialists by hearing aid manufacturers and industry consultants, she works with all major hearing aid brands and is cross-trained on the widest selection of hearing aids. In her personal time, Dr. Smith enjoys spending time with her miniature Australian Shepherd, Chloe, and traveling the world with the goal of eventually visiting every continent (5 down, 2 to go!)

My 92yr old mom was referred to Dr Smith due to hearing loss even though she has hearing aides. Dr Smith treated my mom like her own family and took such wonderful care of her. She actually retested mom's hearing and thankfully reprogrammed her hearing aides as well. The hearing aides were not programmed where they should be leaving mom's hearing at 40%. Not good enough so with some tweeking and adjustments my mom's face lit up when she could actually hear our conversation. We were both so so happy that Dr Smith was able to treat mom from a medical standpoint instead of just audiology side. Again Dr Smith thank you with all of my heart.
Great Doctor. Very knowledgeable.
