COVID-19 (AKA Coronavirus) Response: Coronavirus Update

Our office is open! 

Appointments are preferred as we are limited people in the office and our waiting area.  Walk-ins are limited.

Curbside clean and checks are still available for those who do not want to come in.  Call our receptionist from the parking lot and we will meet the patient at their car.  Masks are required to enter our office. Hand sanitizer is readily provided to each patient at the reception desk.

We ask that family wait outside and that only one companion be allowed for hearing evaluations.

Hearing aid clean and checks and battery and supply purchases will be curbside.  Please call 918-333-9992 when you arrive and our receptionist will come out to assist you.

Rooms, chairs, surfaces and equipment will be sanitized in between patients.  We are allowing extra time between patient appointments to ensure that all aspects of our office are properly sanitized.  Please be patient with us during this time.  

We’re taking precautions to help minimize the spread of Coronavirus. You can find more information about what we’re doing on our website here.

There is no higher priority for Advanced Hearing Care than the health and well-being of our patients and employees. We are closely following guidance on COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019) from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the https://www.ok.gov/health/ to stay on top of all developments. We fully recognize that many of the population we serve are among the most vulnerable to diseases like COVID-19 and the flu.

In accordance with interim guidance from the CDC, we are also taking the following additional measures to further strengthen our protocols and safeguard our patients’ health:

  • If you are feeling under the weather or are experiencing a fever, cough, or shortness of breath, we would ask that you call and reschedule your appointment so as not to put other patients at risk. You could also see if a healthy loved one could bring your hearing aids to the office for a cleaning. We recommend reviewing guidelines from the CDC on preventing illness.
  • Dropping in can create a crowd in our waiting rooms. If an underlying condition or your age makes you more vulnerable to COVID-19, we urge you to avoid dropping in and instead call to schedule a time to get your hearing aids cleaned and checked. We will do our absolute best to get you on the schedule as soon as possible. You could also see if a healthy loved one could bring your hearing aids to the office for a cleaning.
  • We have instructed providers and staff to stay home if they are sick. If your provider becomes ill, we will ask them to stay home, and we sincerely apologize if this means we need to reschedule your appointment!
  • If you need additional accommodations, please don’t hesitate to call our office to discuss.
  • We understand the importance of hearing at your best, especially in this time, when communication is so critical. If there are any updates, we will post on our website and social media.

    If you are having problems with your hearing aids and feel you cannot come in right away, please call and we’ll see whether we can help you over the phone. Please feel free to call with any questions — we are always happy to hear from our patients.
