We understand that our patients must have access to communication to receive healthcare guidance, communicate with family members, and stay informed with the news. We are here to help. We are a private practice audiology only clinic, located in a small retail type setting as opposed to a large multi-specialty medical clinics or hospitals that are burdened with ill patients due to the COVID-19 virus. We are privileged to have ultimate control over the health and wellness of our clinic and we are taking every precaution we can to ensure a safe environment for our patients. It is critical that we are careful at this time in how we provide care in accordance with state and local advisories, as well as CDC recommendations. The advisories are changing by the day. It is imperative that you contact our office with any questions.
