For years, Dr. Lesley Segal had been visiting Martha’s Vineyard and loved the island with all her heart. She decided to raise her daughter here and moved to the island full-time. That's when she realized that Martha's Vineyard did not have an audiology practice to meet the needs of its residents. As a licensed, practicing audiologist herself, Dr. Segal resolved to fill that gap and make sure that everyone on Martha's Vineyard has access to high-quality hearing healthcare without needing to leave the island.
Vineyard Audiology is her own private practice, established in 1998. For 20 years and more, we've served our friends and neighbors on the island. We consider ourselves fortunate to be part of such a special community, and we greatly enjoy giving back to a place that has given us so much.
Prior to founding Vineyard Audiology, Dr. Lesley Segal, served as a senior audiologist at Children's Hospital of Buffalo in Buffalo, NY. Her extensive time working with young people as a pediatric audiologist prepared her to help clients of all ages with patience and compassion. She brings that same kindness and personal touch to every appointment at Vineyard Audiology.
Dr. Segal received her Master of Arts at SUNY Geneseo and her Doctor of Audiology from A.T. Still in Arizona. She is dedicated to the island community and has served on school committees throughout her daughter's academic career here. She also provides professional services for community agencies.
When Dr. Segal founded her practice, she considered the needs of Martha's Vineyard residents. That's why we offer such a broad range of services. We're proud to be able to care for patients of all ages, from infants of 6 months through mature seniors. We can help with hearing testing and evaluation, hearing protection, and fitting, programming, repairing, and maintaining hearing aids. In addition to helping with hearing devices, we also specialize in counseling patients and their families on better communication through hearing loss. If you're having any sort of hearing trouble, we encourage you to come see us and give us a chance to help you, too.
