Melissa Patrich, Au.D.


Melissa grew up in South Florida and received her undergraduate degree in speech, language, and hearing sciences at Boston University. She then earned her Doctorate of Audiology at Rush University in Chicago. Her externship year was completed at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia.

Melissa decided to work within the world of hearing healthcare because she is passionate about helping people improve their quality of life through optimizing their ability to communicate. The audiology field is always using improvements in technology to create a brighter future for individuals living with a hearing loss and tinnitus. Keeping up with technology as it evolves and helps serve patients is something that really drew her to the field.

As our audiologist, Melissa regularly conducts comprehensive hearing and tinnitus assessments as well as evaluations, fittings, and management of hearing aids. She also counsels patients on living with tinnitus, hearing loss, and hearing. Additionally, Melissa has extensive experience with comprehensive vestibular evaluations and CRT maneuvers for the treatment of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo.

The patients at AVI New England mean the world to Melissa. She loves learning about each patient in order to ensure their hearing healthcare is centered around their specific needs. Her approach is patient centered, and no two cases are ever the same. She thoroughly enjoys working directly with people, and a day never goes by without learning something new from her patients.

Outside of the office, Melissa loves to cook and bake for her family and friends. She has a large collection of cookbooks that she’s always browsing for inspiration. Melissa also enjoys listening to podcasts and audiobooks. Her favorite genres are pop culture and comedy.
