Dear Practice Members,

Our practice is OPEN for Business.

Please know we are taking the Coronavirus (COVID-19) very seriously.

To help contain the spread of the virus, please let us know in advance of your next visit if:

  1. You have traveled internationally in the last 14 days or returned from a cruise in the last 14 days.
  2. You have any flu-like symptoms, esp. fever, cough or difficulty breathing.
  3. You have tested positive for Coronavirus (COVID-19).
  4. You have been directly exposed to someone who has tested positive for Coronavirus (COVID-19).

We have implemented the following changes to our practice until the threat of the virus has subsided:

  1. We have changed our morning hours from 8-12 (M, W, Th) and afternoon hours between 2-6 (M, T, W, Th) for the purpose of decreasing the number of people in the office at any one time.
  2. We have stopped doing spinal thermography scans to shorten the time patients are in the office.
  3. We have stopped having patients answer questions on the computers.
  4. We are asking all patients to wash their hands or to use hand sanitizer upon entering the building.
  5. We have designated Table #2 for our senior and maternity patients.
  6. We have significantly increased our anti-viral cleaning efforts by cleaning the adjusting tables, doorknobs, light switches and faucets multiple times daily. Additionally, supplies will be available for you to disinfect/sanitize the adjusting tables if you so choose before your individual use.
  7. We have removed the toys from the reception room.

 The best practices to follow to prevent Coronavirus (COVID-19) are:

  • Get regular spinal adjustments as they are well known to increase immunity. Consider getting them more frequently until the viral threat passes.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water frequently.
  • Avoid touching your face.
  • Get an extra 30-60 minutes of sleep per day.
  • Stay hydrated.
  • Stay home if your sick.
  • Use Agrisept-L daily, which is a natural anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal antioxidant available in our office.
  • Take other products to boost your immunity. We recommend taking Youth Factor, probiotics, Vitamin D3, Vitamin C.
