Continuing Your Care
We recognize that many of you have experienced schedule changes as we adapt to care for all of our patients. We apologize for this inconvenience. It is critical that you continue medical care as recommended by your provider.
If you are tested for or diagnosed with COVID-19, contact us in advance of arriving at your clinic, so they can help you navigate the increased safety measures to mitigate the risk of infecting others.
Enhanced Infection Control Procedures
Increased Screening Procedures
In addition to pre-screening for COVID-19 symptoms before you arrive, all individuals are screened upon arrival at all sites with a questionnaire and temperature check.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
Facemasks are mandatory for everyone inside of our clinics and employees are required to wear full personal protective equipment – gowns, gloves, shields and facemasks – while in close contact with patients.
Cleaning & Disinfection
High-touch areas in our clinics are repeatedly and thoroughly sanitized throughout each day, and work and clinical stations undergo rigorous routine cleaning after every single treatment
All patients and employees are required to follow CDC guidelines for safe social distancing measures – remaining at least six feet apart from others – and visitors are restricted to only those essential for patient care.
Increased Virtual Support Offerings
