COVID-19 – Our Current Protocols In Greenville

by | Feb 17, 2022 | Patient Resources

Our mission is, and always has been, to help the people of the Upstate to achieve better hearing and lead fulfilling lives.

A part of our promise, our team is here to keep you and our staff safe during your visit to our clinic.

With the ever-changing landscape of the world around us, I wanted to take this opportunity to inform you of what we are doing to continue to serve our community in a safe manner for everyone.

Here is how we continue to provide a safe environment.

1.  Always Check Symptoms

If you’re not feeling well in any regard, please give us a call to simply reschedule your appointment. We’re happy to do this to ensure your and others’ safety. We are prepared to accommodate your schedule.

2.  Increased Sanitation Practices

We have allocated more time between appointments to sanitize all public areas thoroughly. We want to make sure our office is safe for everyone who visits us, not just the first person of the day. After each use, we wipe down all tables, chairs, doorknobs, testing equipment, countertops, etc.

3.  We Encourage Everyone To Wear A Mask

As the first line of defense, a mask is a huge asset in the fight against any virus. If you can, we ask everyone to wear a mask while in the office. If it conflicts with your hearing aids, we have solutions for that. Contact us to find out more.

4.  Following All Local And Federal Guidelines

We take all precautions by following the guidelines set forth by recognized organizations. These tend to change quite often, so keep an eye out for our monthly newsletter that will always have the most updated information.

5.  Hand Washing Or Sanitizing Upon Arrival

We have a station set up at the front for everyone to use. This helps keep everything from the outdoors, outdoors. We thank everyone for their understanding and look forward to a bright future due to these practices.

Future Impact Of COVID-19 On Our Audiological Services

We are dedicated to our patients and their hearing. While these past couple of years have been difficult, we are always focused on healthy hearing.

We have developed new ways to treat patients and will continue to adapt to whatever comes our way. This has shown us that no matter what your plan is, plans can change.

I am proud of my team for coming together during these unique times and think that this will only make us stronger and more knowledgeable with our treatments.

Alternatives For Patients Who Would Rather Not Visit Us

We have developed a system that allows us to treat patients without being in the same room. It’s called Tele-Audiology, and here’s how it works.

Tele-Audiology makes use of teleconferencing technology. By using the video camera on your smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop and an internet connection, you can connect to your hearing care provider for a no-contact consultation from the comfort of your home.

Don’t Wait To Treat Your Hearing Loss

The last 2 years have been challenging for us all, and many have avoided appointments due to the threat of COVID-19, but I want to assure the local people in our community that we can provide 5-star hearing care while keeping you safe.

To wait until after the pandemic could cause adverse side effects if your hearing is left untreated, so please don’t delay. Regardless of the challenges the pandemic presents, it should not jeopardize the health of your hearing.

If it’s been a while since you had a test, then I encourage you to do so immediately. Your hearing habits have no doubt changed over the past two years like all of ours have. A comprehensive hearing exam will tell us exactly how it has changed and how to improve it.
