We are re-open to all patients!!
To our most valued patients,
Thank you to those who have had to put off your regular care to help reduce the virus exposure. We are pleased to announce the re-opening of our clinic to all patient care beginning Tuesday, May 19, 2020. As part of Phase 2 of BC’s Restart Plan, chiropractors in British Columbia have been given direction from Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry that we can offer in-person services to all, provided that we can provide safe patient care and prevent the spread of the virus. We are receiving guidance from the BC Ministry of Health, BC Centre for Disease Control, and WorkSafe BC in collaboration with the College of Chiropractors of BC.
As we have implemented during Phase 1, when were treating on a restricted basis, the clinic has developed a plan to protect the health of our patients and staff and prevent the spread of the virus. We have new protocols for visitors to our clinic. Before visiting our clinic, you will be asked screening questions to determine if you have symptoms of COVID-19. If it is deemed that you have symptoms to be investigated further, we will direct you to appropriate provincial resources, and your appointment will have to wait. In the case of an emergent visit for a patient with symptoms, it will be up to the doctor to determine if extra precautions can be taken to limit exposure in the clinic and if the reason for coming in outweighs the risk. Doctors and staff will have basic personal protective equipment (PPE). If necessary, the doctor can use additional PPE if procedures require it, if the patient has additional risk factors, or at the patient’s request. Please consider the following before your visit:
· Come on time. If you are early for your scheduled time, please wait outside the clinic
· We ask that, if possible, no additional family members enter the clinic.
· Please use hand sanitizer before and after your appointment.
· Please bring a face mask or covering if you desire one.
In addition to the changes entering Phase 2 of patient care, Dr. Elena has begun her maternity leave. At this time, we do not know how long she will be out of the office. Dr. Elena is disappointed to not have to opportunity to see those who have had to put off appointments during Phase 1 of COVID-19, but would like her patients to follow up with Dr. Clint in her absence so that they are taken care of. Dr. Clint’s adjusting style is same and he can follow up for some foot cases that require adjustments. Graston cases will have to wait at this time.
We appreciate your patience in this unprecedented time. Follow us on Facebook for updates like when Dr. Elena will return from maternity leave or any other changes.
To book your appointment, or if you have any further questions, please call the clinic at 250-785-0909
