Office Closure – Covid-19 Alert

As recommended by the CDC, Carolina Hearing Doctors is closed through Friday, April 3. Due to the Covid-19 outbreak we will not be providing any routine ear or hearing care until further notice. We encourage all of our patients, particularly those over age 70, to remain in your homes.

We ARE AVAILABLE for phone calls to give guidance if you have a hearing emergency.

Winston-Salem – 794-8212

We are always available through email at DrMills@CarolinaHearingDoctors.com. We will be most active on the telephone between 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.  If you have a specific need please call during those hours.

We appreciate your patience as we navigate this uncharted territory. We are staying optimistic that this altered schedule will not last long. We will be monitoring the information coming from the CDC and other reliable sources to make the most informed decision on when to resume our normal hours. Ultimately it is important to keep everyone healthy and safe.

You and your families are the number one concern and we are here to support you however we can.

Please be safe, wash your hands, and limit physical contact with others.

Avoiding Covid-19

Preventing this virus is as easy as avoiding contact with others

  • Avoid any busy area like grocery stores, pharmacies, and public gatherings.
  • Stay 6 feet away from all people at all times.
  • Wash your hands several times every day – even at home.
    • Definitely wash your hands after being outside of your home for any reason.
  • Avoid contact with any sick people. Anyone with a cough or sneeze should be avoided.
  • As people enter your home have them wash their hands immediately.
    • Leave shoes and coats at the door.
    • If they’ve been in public places it’s even best to have them change clothes.
