I’ve been seeing people in their homes and in healthcare facilities since 2006 under the business name Ears to You. I’ve known since the start that many people prefer to go to an office to see an audiologist, so I knew I would miss those folks. But I wanted to provide a service that some in the community need (and greatly appreciate).
Now I’ve re-structured the practice so I can do both. June 30 is my target date to open an office at 13784 Warwick Blvd. It’s in the Denbigh area of Newport News between Bland and Denbigh Blvd. Office hours will be Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, 9 – 4. I’m reserving Wednesday and Friday as flex days so I can see people in the office or go mobile, as needed. We’ll be closed Sunday and Monday.
The location is an interesting one – it’s between a barber shop and a chiropractor. The barber has been there since 1965. I’ve been working on the physical set up over the past couple of weeks, and as I’ve worked, customers from the barbershop have wandered in to ask about the changes. It’s a place for conversation, and I like that. I want people to keep wandering in. If I’m seeing patients they can talk to my wife (she’s handling reception).
Don’t look for a sign out front until later in June; I’m waiting for it to be made.
