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!)

I had a very thorough hearing exam and I knew I was losing some hearing. Dr. Smith treated me with kindness, respect, and truth. I would recommend her to anyone. Great place to go for a hearing assessment. And the hearing aids I bought work great!!!
Only needed to have a tube replaced, but the young lady at the front desk was friendly and with a smile and Dr. Smith is awesome.

I am so grateful to have Dr Leigh Smith as my audiologist. She took her time giving me a comprehensive hearing test and found specifically what hearing loss I have in each ear. She explained the findings and fitted me with new hearing aides. The minute I put them on I was astounded at the quality of hearing. I’ve had them about 2 weeks now and my tinnitus has improved as well. Dr Leigh made me feel comfortable and answered all my questions. I will be recommending Florida Audiology to anyone who needs a quality hearing test and hearing aides. My life is so much better with these hearing aides that Dr Leigh personally programmed for my needs.
Dr. Leigh and staff are awesome. She runs a friendly and professional office. I had a problem with my first hearing aids and she promptly replaced and tuned up the new ones in no time. Extremely pleased with the whole experience.
