The COVID-19 pandemic has affected every one of us. With the “shelter-in-place” order and social distancing practice now in effect across California, and some of our patients having to completely self-isolate in their homes, face-to-face audiology appointments have naturally become a significant challenge for many.

Here at Berkeley Hearing Center, we are always looking for new and innovative ways to best meet our patients’ needs, for example, with the recent introduction of our Drive-Thru Audiology Services. We have now taken things a step further to better serve our patients who are unable to leave their homes.

Introducing ‘TeleAudiology’

What is TeleAudiology?

Rather than having to travel to our hearing center in Berkeley, you can enjoy the same face-to-face conversations you would usually have with your audiologist using video calling technology through your smartphone, tablet, or computer.

This means that you no longer have to travel to your appointment, saving you time and keeping you safe.

Maybe you need a TeleAudiology appointment to discuss challenges you are having with your hearing or to be shown how to care for your hearing aids. Even more amazing, if you’ve invested in some of the latest hearing aid devices, they feature built-in remote programming capabilities. So we’re often able to adjust your settings and features in real time!
