Keeping You Safe
In accordance with the CDC, State Governments, and National Acupuncture Organizations, we've put in place new Office Policies. Though some of the following changes may seem like "a lot", we have instituted them solely in the interest of helping each and every one of us to feel safe and secure in our center.
New Office Policies
Prior To Your Appointment
All Patients (New & Returning) will be required to complete the pre-appointment COVID-19 INFORMED CONSENT FORM.
Before Entering The Clinic
MASKS REQUIRED: Anyone entering the clinic will be required to wear a mask before entry and throughout their visit. No exceptions.
PATIENTS ONLY - NO GUESTS: Please leave all guests at home, waiting in the car, or have them drop off and pick you up at a later time. Only patients will be allowed into the reception area and treatment rooms. NOTE: If you have special circumstances, please call us directly. We will do our very best to accommodate you.
TEMPERATURE & OXYGEN LEVEL CHECK: Each patient will have a pre-entry temperature screen and pulse oximeter reading. Anyone with a temperature of 100F or above, or a pulse-oxymeter reading below 90 will need to reschedule treatment, and be advised to contact their primary healthcare provider.
After Entering The Clinic
HAND HYGIENE: Upon entering the clinic, hand sanitation is required as you check into the front reception desk. You'll find a brand-spanking new "touch-less" alcohol sanitizer next to the reception desk.
REDUCED OVERLAP: We will be spacing out appointments to reduce overlap from patient to patient.
WAITING AREA - SOCIAL DISTANCING: The "waiting areas" have been rearranged for safe social distancing - with well spaced chairs in case there's a delay, or should you arrive early. Our goal, however, is to bring you directly into the treatment room upon arrival.
In The Treatment Room
SANITIZING UV-C LAMPS: You'll also notice new UV-C lamps in the corner of each individual treatment room. These powerful sanitizing lamps kill 99.9% of all bacteria, viruses and fungi in the room. The UV-C Lamps run for 15 minutes between patients, leaving the room safe for both patient and practitioner afterward.
Throughout The Clinic
SANITIZING UV-C LAMPS: All shared clinic spaces (bathrooms, waiting / reception area, hallways) will also be sanitized daily with our new medical grade UV-C lamps.
CLEANING: As per usual, our clinics are professionally cleaned and disinfected, and all gowns, sheets, towels and scrubs professionally laundered.
We are ready and very well prepared for the transition back - and have missed seeing you.
We look forward to picking up where we left off with your treatment!
