Speak To a Doctor Of Audiology Today Using Innovative ‘Virtual Hearing Care’

People around the world can engage with each other without stepping a foot outside their door.

Through the Internet and modern technology, people work from home and meet with loved ones via a video call.

This greatly reduces the need for expensive travel and ensures that people don’t miss out on special moments just because they live far away from each other.

But when it comes to visiting the audiologist, patients have no option but to travel to their doctor’s office, sit patiently in the waiting room, and meet with their doctor face to face.

In troubling times, such as the current COVID-19 pandemic, when leaving your home and travel is heavily discouraged, those who seek hearing care are forced to postpone or even cancel essential appointments and not receive the care they need.

There is good news, though – times are changing. Duncan Hearing Healthcare is pleased to introduce Virtual Hearing Care to its patients across Massachusetts.

This innovative technology means that you can have a face-to-face video consultation with an audiologist in your own home. It is an easy and convenient way to ensure your hearing health remains an important part of your healthcare regime.

What is Virtual Hearing Care

With your cell phone, tablet, or PC, you can easily connect and converse face to face with your audiologist from the comfort of your home or office. There’s no need to travel. No need to leave work or home early for your appointment. And there’s no need to reschedule other appointments.

This service benefits new patients and current patients, no matter where you are on your journey to better hearing. Perhaps you’ve noticed your hearing hasn’t been up to par and you are worried and concerned, wondering what to do next. This is a good opportunity to ask questions and receive advice form a top professional in audiological healthcare.

If you are already a familiar face at Duncan Hearing Healthcare, we can help you, too. We can discuss any changes you’ve noticed in your hearing, troubleshoot any hearing aid issues, and get your hearing back on track without any delays.

Patients who wear the latest advanced hearing technology will appreciate its remote programming capabilities, meaning their audiologist can fine tune their hearing aids within minutes.

“I’m a fairly new area resident and client of Duncan Hearing. I’m also a snowbird. Last fall during my hearing evaluation, they told me that my older hearing aids were starting to fail. I decided to ride it out and headed south. Unfortunately, my hearing aids failed while I was away. But it turned out okay. Dr. Duncan and her team were able to order and deliver to me new and upgraded hearing aids. We did a remote activation and they helped me link my new aids to my new cell phone for bluetooth connectivity. This was my first experience with having a bluetooth connection, and it is great! But I couldn’t have done it without the guidance of Kimberley and Duncan Healthcare. Thank you all very much!”
