A Note from Dr. Healey
At this time, I am officially announcing my retirement effective July 1, 2017. Throughout my career, I've had the opportunity to provide a wide range of diagnostic and rehabilitative services for individuals with hearing loss as well as audiological educational management for school districts throughout Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
When planning my retirement, my objectives have been to ensure each client is well cared for and that there is minimal disruption of services. I am pleased to say that the practice has transitioned beautifully to the very capable and caring management of Dr. Kristen Rubin and Dr. Brianna Schiff.
Thank you for the many years of your friendship and patronage. I look forward to the next chapter in my life.
