OPEN FOR IN PERSON VISITS, AFTER THE REQUIRED SCREENING
STILL OFFERING PHONE AND ZOOM CONSULTATIONS
A UV filter (disinfecting) filters all circulating air in this building, to increase your protection
For all in person visits, please call when you arrive, to let us know you are ready for us, and that you are clear on the Covid screening questionnaire, then wait in your car until we let you know we are ready for you. If you do not come by car, let us know as we don’t want to leave you out in the cold, now that the weather is cooler and the back yard is no longer a comfortable “waiting room”.
If this is your first in-person visit since the start of the pandemic, please see the Pandemic Patient Protection page so you know the processes in this clinic for patient safety.
Depending on the circumstances, we may also arrange for the discussion of your symptoms and current health challenges to be by phone or zoom, and testing to be in person, to reduce contact time. Zoom and telephone consultations are charged at the same rate as in person visits.
Testing can be out-doors, by special arrangement, to reduce the probability of viral transmission.
