At the age of 6, before I knew the word audiology, let alone a field available for me to study, I started my first dance class at Chorus Line Dance Studio in my hometown. It was here I first observed a lively girl in a pink tutu making rapid hand movements at my dance teacher, while simultaneously laughing and chatting expressively with the girls around her. I then noticed poking out of her ballerina bun was a clunky piece of plastic that connected from her ear to her head. Being six and rather outgoing, I unabashedly walked up to her and asked her what in the world was on her head. She looked at me with a smile and stated, “my name is Marissa and I am deaf. This is a cochlear implant and it helps me hear the music.” It was then I realized if I could do anything in this life, it would be to help people hear the music.

Dr. Allison McVeety first joined the Audio Help Hearing Centers team as a fourth-year doctoral resident after receiving her bachelor’s degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders from James Madison University and completing her coursework in the Doctorate of Audiology program from the University of Connecticut. Once she had completed her year of residency, she realized she could not part from her Audio Help family and joined the team as a full-time clinical audiologist. Through a myriad of clinical rotations in hospitals and private practice settings alike, she has developed her unique skill set in the diagnosis and treatment of hearing loss, cochlear implant evaluation and programming, and pediatrics. She is a New York State licensed audiologist, as well as a New York State licensed hearing aid dispenser. She currently holds a Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association.

Dr. McVeety truly passionate about improving the quality of life for her patients through the use of education, the latest hearing aid technology, and the ability to simply sit and listen. She strives to build strong relationships with her patients, so she can combine her knowledge of the latest hearing aid technology with their hearing needs, in order to better improve their daily lives.

Dr. McVeety resides in the greater NYC area. When she is not working she enjoys spending time with friends and family and being a nanny for several adorable children throughout the city.
