All hearing aid wearers are welcome regardless of where they purchased their hearing aids.

When clients arrive, staff will come out to the window of the car wearing personal protective equipment and take the hearing aids inside to be thoroughly cleaned and inspected. They will return the hearing aids to the car and move onto the next patient.
