COVID-19 OFFICE CHANGES

MY OFFICE IS OPEN! THERE ARE SOME CHANGES.

I'm currently seeing established patients. My office hours have changed, and are more limited for the time being. 

I am now able to take new patients. Our first visit (normally 2 hours) will be split into two visits, and a portion of it can be done via phone or video call. Video calls are via a secure, HIPPA protected platform. 

If you are interested in becoming a new patient, please call or email me. 

MY ROLE IN KEEPING US SAFE

  • I'm limiting the number of patients I see in a day, and per week. This helps me minimize how many people are coming and going; it's easier to keep track of possible risks. 

  • I wear either a KN-95 or a three-layer cloth mask with a five-layer filter inside it. The masks protect the other person more than they protect the wearer. They work by trapping the droplets in the the air we exhale. When I wear my masks, I'm thinking of you. 

  • The office is deep cleaned nightly. When I'm working, the treatment room is wiped down after every patient. All touched surfaces, all items used (literally), door handles, everything. I also air the room between patients. 

  • I'm running HEPA air purifiers with ionizers and virus filters in the office. The window is open also. I can't have that cozy, fuzzy blanket any more, so bring your favorite warm and cozies for the winter weather.   

  • Card payments are now touchless. Checks and cash are still accepted. My card payment system will record your card information, security protected (not even I can access your card number once I enter it). 

YOUR ROLE

In order to make sure I keep you, myself, and our families safe:

  • Reschedule your appointment if you are sick, whether it's COVID related or not. 

  • Masks are required on the property and in the building ,and must be worn during the entire appointment, even if you're vaccinated. 

  • Come to your appointment on time and do not arrive early. If you do arrive early, please wait in your car. Late arrivals may need to be rescheduled due to the time needed to clean between appointments. 

  • Do not bring additional people to your appointment. If you have someone with you, I ask that they wait outside the office. The waiting area will not be used.

  • Wash your hands upon arrival or use hand sanitizer.  I have hand sanitizer for you to use.

  • You'll be sent a pre-appointment questionnaire. Please fill it out and please be honest. It will help me coordinate possible schedule changes for my most vulnerable patients.
