COVID-19 Center Updates: Telehealth and more!

HSCNC Updates

We hope you are all safe and healthy at home in these uncertain times! At the Center, we are doing everything we can to ensure your communication healthcare needs are provided for. Read on for some updates to our services. Remember you can always check our Facebook for more updates too!

Telehealth

The Center is now up and running for telehealth appointments! If you’re having any trouble with your hearing aid, need a check appointment, are interested in purchasing new hearing aids, or would like a tinnitus or hyperacusis counseling appointment give us a call Monday-Friday, 9AM- 3PM and we’d be happy to schedule you. Additional services may become available soon, so if you need an appointment for something not listed feel free to give us a call and we will do our best to accommodate you!

Drop-Offs and Troubleshooting

The clinic is also accepting no-contact hearing aid drop-offs! When you or a loved one comes to the Center you’ll notice a box and several clipboards. Simply fill out the drop-off envelope form and leave the hearing aid in the box. Our staff will bring the hearing aid to an audiologist and we’ll contact you when it’s ready for pickup. If the device needs to be sent to the manufacturer we can also have it shipped directly to your home, free of charge, so you don’t need to pick it up.

Essential Hearing Aid Supplies

In addition to telehealth appointments, you can also order any necessary supplies to care for your hearing aids at home. Simply give us a call to order batteries, wax guards, domes, dry aid kits or cleaning tools. We’ll take credit card payments over the phone and will ship via USPS at no additional cost to you.
