The outbreak of the Coronavirus, COVID-19 is of concern to everyone and our thoughts go out to those who have been impacted by it. We are committed to your health and safety as the virus continues to spread. We are monitoring the CDC and State Health websites and taking necessary precautions.
At the Center, we have taken the following precautions:
We are open for scheduled appointments with our Speech Language Pathologists and Audiologists by appointment only until further notice. Please call 505-247-4224 to make an appointment. For hearing aid cleaning and repairs we often can accommodate your needs on a daily basis, but you need to call before you come in due to limitations of our waiting room space. We also offer curbside service, just let us know your preference.
We are open five days a week for urgent care. These may be things such as a Broken Hearing Aid, Sudden Loss of Hearing, and Hearing Aid Fittings (If you have a current order).
An appointment is required for all services.
If you have an urgent need, please call our center at (505) 247-4224 to schedule an urgent appointment.
Should you be scheduled for an urgent care appointment, please limit bringing accompanying family or friends to your appointment. We are still restricted to limited numbers of people in our office space under the Governor’s Health Orders.
We have asked our staff to not attend work if they are not well and we ask the same of you. Please stay home and call to reschedule if you are sick.
We continue to follow the CDC orders for protecting our staff and patients from exposure to Covid19. We have a strict policy of cleaning to ensure we do not expose patients and staff to any germ/virus.
We have removed the toys in our waiting room just to be safe during this epidemic.
We have spread out seating in the waiting room and will also use our conference room for overflow waiting should we get more than 8 people in the waiting area at a time.
During this time we encourage you to practice good self-care: stay hydrated, get rest, avoid touching your eyes, face, and mouth, sneeze/cough deep into your elbow or into a tissue to avoid the spread of germs, wash your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds (the time it takes to sing “Happy Birthday” two times), if you use the restroom use a clean paper towel or tissue to open the door after washing. Practice “Social Distancing.” If you feel ill, follow CDC guidelines to get testing.

On behalf of everyone at the Albuquerque Speech Language and Hearing Center, we wish you good health and we will strive to be fully open again as soon as possible.
