Since there are several Veterans on this forum using VA Audiology Clinics, I’d like to know the status of the VA Audiology Clinics they use. I use the Martinsburg WV Medical Center (MC) and my 4th appointment was cancelled today. I’ve been trying since 27 April to get an appointment at the Audiology Clinic to replace my trial hearing aids and have had the following appointments cancelled so far: 1 June, 10 July, 30 July, and 24 July–that was the order of my appointments… I sent the VA Audio Clinic a secure message on 4 May informing them that I wanted to trial a different hearing aid and I’ve been waiting since then.
They stopped seeing face-to-face patients because of COVID-19, but the two local civilian hospitals are now seeing outpatients for appointments along with patient visitors. I tried to go the Community Care route but when I spoke to the person in charge of the MC VA Veterans Experience Officers last week, the MC is still in Phase I, so they’re only referring emergent cases for Community Care.
Sorry for the long story, but just wondering if other VA Audio Clinics are open for business.
