Drive-in Clinic: The Fast, Effective,
Contact-Free Way to Gain Hearing Care
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the way we go about our daily lives has changed. Whether shopping in a grocery store or picking up a prescription, it’s been important to keep our distance from others and stop the spread of the virus.
In response, Audiology and Hearing Aid Associates developed a brand-new service, the Drive-in Clinic. This offered patients a safe method to receive hearing care assistance from the security of their vehicles.
Since then, the Drive-in Clinic has grown in popularity. Audiologists have dispensed support and assistance to hundreds of people, whilst patients have loved its ease and convenience
Today, the Drive-in Clinic is an indispensable part of Audiology and Hearing Aid Associates’ comprehensive approach to advanced care.
What is the Drive-in Clinic?
To boil it down, the Drive-in Clinic is similar to many other drive-thru services – like when you pick up burgers or coffee on the go from your favorite vendor.
The main difference? Instead of fast-food, specialists at Audiology and Hearing Aid Associates provide you with a contact-free way of receiving hearing help and support.
- Hearing Aid Clean and Checks
- Hearing Aid Programming and Calibration
- Hearing Screenings and Re-evaluation of Hearing
- Telehealth Sessions
- Remote Programming Sessions
You can receive all these services from the comfort and safety of your vehicle, with members of the team ready to assist you at the clinic.

– Frequently Asked Questions –
Q: How Does a Hearing Test in My Car Work?
The COVID-19 outbreak has made many ordinary tasks seem strange and unfamiliar. But with brand-new technology, Audiology and Hearing Aid Associates can conduct professional hearing tests without the need for a walk-in sound booth.
This takes place using noise-canceling headphones and a sanitized tablet. With a few simple taps, your hearing will be accessed.
Following this, you’ll get the results within seconds. You can then discuss them confidentially with your audiologists, and they’ll adjust any of your existing devices accordingly.
Q: What’s the Average Wait Time?
After you arrive at the office, a member of the team will be ready to assist you in less than three minutes.
Most hearing aid service appointments take roughly 20-30 minutes.
But a hearing aid programming session may take 30-45 minutes, and an evaluation appointment may take up to 60 minutes.
However, if all you need is a simple clean and check, the process will be much speedier.
Q: Can Others Be in The Car with Me?
Loved ones can be in the car during a visit. In fact, it’s something that we’re happy to see at the Drive-in Clinic.
But we don’t advise that you bring hungry children or grandchildren in the car if you’re coming for a lengthy appointment. As no one should leave the vehicle at any time, we’ve found this can be problematic!
Q: How Does It Work?
Currently, all appointments must be scheduled in advance. Once you have an agreed time, you just need to drive to the clinic.
Most patients can park on the street in front of the clinic or in the parking lot.
However, those who specifically need hearing aid programming or hearing testing can only park in the parking lot.
Once you arrive, either call or text the office at (541)-612-7555 or ring the doorbell located at the elevator in our parking lot
After this, all you need to do is share what vehicle you are in and a member of the team will come back to you within a matter of minutes. Your audiologist will then promptly assist you with your hearing concern, through a guided experience.
Access to fantastic hearing care has never been simpler.
