A message from California Hearing Center & Audiology Services Inc about COVID-19:

As we move into Stage 2 of shelter in place, we have created an office environment that is safe and secure for our patients and our team. We screen for Covid-19 symptoms, require masks & social distancing, and ensure all rooms are clean and disinfected. In our San Mateo office, we will continue curbside service, mailing of batteries/supplies and remote care. Call us. We're here to help.
