Office COVID-19 Protocols

Please contact me to reschedule if any of these apply:

  • If you have traveled by plane in the last 14 days.
  • If you have been in close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19.
  • If you are feeling sick.

For your appointment:

  • Masks are worn by all clinicians and patients while inside the clinic.
  • Patients are allowed into the office by appointment only in order to minimize traffic and the total number of people.
  • Please text me when you arrive and I will meet you at the front door when my treatment room has been sufficiently disinfected.
  • You will need to wash your hands in the office restroom before the treatment.
  • I will take your temperature and oxygen saturation in my treatment room.

Office additions:

  • Hospital-grade HEPA air purifier in the waiting room.
  • Disinfecting high-touch surfaces such as all doorknobs, restroom light switch, and faucet after every patient visit.
  • No longer providing water or tea.

My treatment room protocol:

  • I get a COVID-19 test weekly.
  • I am using required sanitation and disinfecting solutions per the CDC requirements and the EPA List N Disinfectants.
  • I am disinfecting all equipment after each use - hemostat, needle tray, cupping pump, scissors, electrostim machine, and cables, pulse oximeter, etc.
  • I am disinfecting furniture - vinyl cover on the treatment table, rolling stool, heat lamp, side table, and chair.
  • I am disinfecting all common-touch surfaces - front doorknob, treatment room doorknobs, restroom doorknobs, and faucet handles.
  • I keep my window open a couple of inches during patient visits and open fully between visits to maintain the circulation of fresh air.
  • All linens are for single-use only - treatment table sheets, pillowcases, a blanket case, and other props.
  • I have an air purifier that filters down to 0.1 microns.
