Peter DuckworthBeltone™, the nation’s leading hearing care provider, recognizes that during this unprecedented period where most of us are quarantined at home, it can be challenging trying to communicate with someone who is having trouble hearing and understanding. Staying home alone with hearing issues can, oftentimes, be worse and lead to anxiety and depression in isolation when it is difficult to enjoy television or even telephone calls.

Beltone™ now offers different ways to continue serving our community at a time when older, more vulnerable populations are advised to stay at home.

Beltone™ Remote Care Live gives our patients real-time video hearing care appointments and allows the hearing care professionals the ability to both consult with patients via video and to remotely make hearing aids adjustments through the Beltone HearMax phone app.

Office Visits are available If you need to come in for testing or additional services. At Beltone, the health and safety of our patients is always our top priority. Rest assured knowing our offices are cleaned and disinfected thoroughly between each visit.

Curb Side Service is also available for cleanings, repairs, or supplies. We are ready to service you right from the convenience of your car.

Please Call Us At 321-255-4884 to book an appointment.
