Patient Notice – COVID-19 UDPATE

The health and safety of our patients and our staff is a primary concern for our Clinic during this time of COVID-19. You can feel confident when you make an appointment with our professionals knowing that we have revisited every step taken from the check-in process, throughout the exam and therapy to check-out time. We have evaluated current regulations and will implement them throughout your visit.

You will notice some differences when you arrive. The staff will be wearing protective equipment. We encourage you to wear your face mask as you enter the building but we will have a face mask available to you if needed. Our staff and any person entering the clinic are required to pass a basic health screening performed by our staff which includes a temperature check and answers to questions regarding symptoms or risk factors for COVID-19. Employees will continue to sanitize their hands between patients and there will be hand sanitizer available for everyone.

We have also modified our schedule to allow for rigorous disinfecting of the patient area between appointments so the number of patients seen in a day may be slightly less. We ask for your patience during this time.

Our waiting room will not be open. Patients may have only one caregiver present with them if desired. Any person accompanying a patient who is not going to be present throughout the appointment is asked to wait in their car until the patient appointment is concluded.

Please help us with the check-in process by completing all paperwork needed before arrival to the building. We will have designated markings on the floor of the hall to maintain the recommended 6 feet apart for social distancing.

We will make modifications as new information is available to us.

Until further notice, the Clinic is open BY APPOINTMENT ONLY and for AUDIOLOGY services only. Curbside drop off service for hearing aids is available upon request – please call ahead. The client or caregiver should call the main office (513-529-2500) upon arrival under the canopy at the entrance to the clinic.

 The Clinic is closed for service on Fridays.

SPEECH THERAPY services are available through e-visits (telehealth):

PLEASE CALL THE CLINIC for an APPOINTMENT. We ask that you please DO NOT COME IN WITHOUT AN APPOINTMENT. 513-529-2500.
