WHAT IS TELEHEALTH?

WHAT IS  TELEHEALTH?Telehealth is a new health care development. Since a lot of computers and mobile devices now have built-in cameras and microphones, you can meet with us over the internet.

Of course, certain hearing health issues require an in-person appointment, but many issues can be successfully handled by meeting with us “face to face” from the comfort of your own home.

This is ideal for people who live far away from the nearest provider or those who cannot easily get to their provider because of mobility, transportation, or other issues.

You can also request adjustment through an app on a smartphone that is connected to your hearing aids for remote programming. Since a lot of computers and mobile devices now have built-in cameras and microphones, you can meet with us over the internet for in-person real-time adjustments.
WHAT CAN YOU HELP WITH VIA TELEHEALTH?
Only some of our services are possible via telehealth. Schedule a consultation for:

Remote adjustments – either via in-app request or live telehealth adjustments.

HOW DO I USE TELEHEALTH?

Call or email us to schedule a telehealth consultation.

You’ll receive an email with a secure link in it. At the scheduled time, click the link.

An internet browser window will open — your appointment has begun! You and your provider can now see and talk to each other online.
