Our audiologists are seeing patients by appointment only for both in-clinic services and curbside options. In compliance with CDC recommendations, and for everyone’s protection, we are using a patient screening questionnaire, temperature checks, and ask that all patients wear a face mask or cloth face covering. Please call your clinic to learn more or to schedule an appointment.
