UPDATE: September 1, 2020
SDSD statewide Outreach Consultants are currently supporting families and educators, working with student teams, and assisting with questions, strategies, and resources.
Our Mobile Hearing Lab is busy providing hearing screenings and hearing evaluations in schools in order to continue to expand audiology services across the state.
Our audiology clinic is excited to be serving patients again! However, our “new normal” will look pretty different for a while, so please bear with us as we work to uphold the safety of our SDSD families and staff during these unprecedented times. We are seeing patients on a reduced schedule to limit the number of people in the office at a time and to allow for a thorough cleaning in between each patient. In addition, we are prioritizing appointment types in order of emergence, and we are only scheduling two weeks out, to accommodate if there is any potential exposure to COVID-19. Therefore, if you are on our waitlist, we have not forgotten about you! Your child’s appointment is important to us and we will contact you to schedule as soon as time and safety measures allow.
We are continuing to closely monitor this ever-evolving situation, and will make adjustments as appropriate. Please know that we are doing everything we can to keep you and our staff safe while continuing to deliver high-quality audiologic care.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation during these unique times.
If there are any questions or concerns, please contact our office (SDSD Main Clinic - Sioux Falls: 605-367-5200; SDSD West River Clinic – Rapid City: 605-791-7839).
