Dr. Stefanie L. Natelson, Au.D.

Staff Audiologist

Dr. Stefanie Levitt Natelson, Au.D. earned her Doctorate of Audiology with honors from Salus University. Prior to attending Salus University, she earned her Bachelor of Science in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Syracuse University. While at Salus, Dr. Natelson was trained on the diagnosis and treatment of hearing and balance impairments. An integral part of her studies included various clinical internship and externship opportunities. Her experiences ranged from a pediatric hospital to a VA hospital to private practices. Working at a VA hospital provided Dr. Natelson with a solid foundation of hearing aid knowledge. Her work at the VA also stimulated her curiosity in other facets of Audiology, including but not limited to, extensive work in clinical trials and expanding her knowledge of electrophysiology and balance assessment. For her fourth year residency, in addition to working at a private practice with an audiologist, Dr. Natelson had the rare opportunity to work alongside a prestigious neurology practice assessing and diagnosing vestibular abnormalities. It was at this placement where Dr. Natelson found her niche and upon graduating, had the privilege of joining the practice as a full time audiologist. She is fluent in American Sign Language and has used her skills to interpret within the community. She currently holds her New York State Audiology and Hearing Aid Dispensing licenses and is a fellow of the American Academy of Audiology and is affiliated with the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.
