ACES is committed to maintaining services during this time of social distancing by offering telemedicine via online video conferencing that is HIPAA-compliant or videophone for our Deaf clients.

Current and former clients are encouraged to contact us through our patient portal for requesting and changing appointments. Phone coverage for the office will be provided remotely, with videophone and voice messages checked at a minimum of once every two hours. Thank you for your understanding of these changes. We are confident in the resiliency of our community as we work together.
