Leigh Smith, AuD

Originally from Cranston, Rhode Island, Dr. Leigh 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 Ivy League affiliated 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, and private 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 outreach. 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 travelling the world with the goal of eventually visiting every continent.
