COVID-19 HEALTH AND SAFETY PROTOCOL

It is important to us that we ensure you are safe and protected from any risk associated with acquiring COVID-19 or any other for that matter. To that end we wish to review with you the safety and sanitary standards we have adopted at our clinic.

●  All surfaces that will be touched by human hands are scrubbed down with government approved disinfectant before and after each shift and before and after each patient. This includes door handles to closed doors, chairs, reception desk, point of sale terminal, adjusting benches, testing equipment and therapeutic equipment to name the most common ones. We have a checklist that is followed after each patient to ensure we do not miss a thing.

●  You are required to cleanse your hands upon entering the premises with the hand sanitizer we will provide. We advise you to do the same when you leave.

●  You are required to let us know in advance of your visit to the office if you are not feeling well or have a fever. We will ask you to postpone your visit to the office until your symptoms have abated.

●  The doctor will be cleansing their hands between each patient visit to ensure there is no transmission of infectious agents.

●  The doctor and team will be wearing appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) as per our regulatory bodies requirements.

●  Safe physical distancing protocols will be maintained at all times between the patients while in the office.

●  Our appointment booking system has undergone some transformation in order to keep you safe. We will be booking patient visits at a frequency that minimizes the possibility that more people will be in the office at once than can safely maintain physical distance protocols. We ask for your cooperation and patience with us as we work out the new booking system. It is important to contact us by phone if you arrive early for an appointment so as to ensure appropriate physical distancing. If we get running behind for any reason we will do our best to contact you and advise you of an appropriate time to come later in the day or the next day.

●  If at any time during your visit with us you feel uncomfortable or unsafe PLEASE communicate that to one of the team members or the doctor and we will do everything in our power to resolve it and help you feel safe or rebook your appointment.
