Atlanta VA Medical Center Veteran patients now have the option to directly request a routine Audiology appointment without the need for a consult from primary care.
Atlanta VA Medical Center Offers Direct Scheduling for Routine Audiology Services
The Audiology Clinics at Atlanta VA Medical Center (AVAMC) in Decatur and Trinka Davis Veterans Village (TDVV) in Carrollton have implemented a program to facilitate Veteran access to Audiology services. The program, called Direct Scheduling, allows the Veteran the option to directly request a routine Audiology appointment without the need for a consult from primary care.
A consult will no longer be needed when referring a patient to Audiology for routine care. Routine care includes hearing test evaluation, hearing aid services, and cerumen (ear wax) management. All other audiology requests for vestibular evaluation and medically urgent hearing tests will still require a consult.
The only requirement of a Veteran to directly schedule their own Audiology appointment is that they are Enrolled and Registered with the Atlanta VA Medical Center. No vesting visit is required and no Primary Care Provider assignment needed.
If Veterans desire to see a provider in Audiology for one of these routine care needs, they can simply call and request an appointment.
If a Veteran wishes to be seen in Audiology at the Atlanta VAMC (Decatur), they can call (404) 235-3036 or stop by the Audiology Clinic (located on the ground floor of main hospital, A building).
If a Veteran wishes to be seen in Audiology at the TDVV in Carrollton, they can call (404) 321-6111 ext. 3839 or stop by the TDVV Audiology Clinic.
