Covid-19 mitigation measures in place in the clinic

  • All patients will be screened prior to entering the clinic for fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath and/or muscle aches and will be asked to cancel and reschedule their appointment if they are experiencing symptoms.
  • To screen for fever, I will be taking each patient’s temperature with a contactless thermometer prior to entering the clinic.
  • I will be wearing a medical mask and patients are asked to wear a cloth facial covering during their visit.
  • Patients will be asked to wait in their cars prior to their appointments. I will call or alert patients when it is time to come into the building for their appointment.
  • Patients will be asked to wash their hands with soap and water or use hand sanitizer upon entering the clinic.
  • Checkout and rescheduling will occur in the treatment room rather than in my office.
  • All personal items should be hung on the hooks on the back of the treatment room doors. No personal items will be allowed on the intake desks.
  • Treatment tables and all hard surfaces and doorknobs will be disinfected per CDC protocols in-between patient visits. As is standard, all linens will be changed in-between patient visits.
  • For now, I will only be seeing one patient per hour, and I am allowing at least 15 minutes in-between patients for proper cleaning.
  • I am providing reduced cost visits for patients who are currently unemployed due to Covid-19.  Please contact me for more information.
