Announcement for Clinic Startup
During COVID-19 June 2020

Mindful re-opening.  What you need to do.  What you need to bring.

We are pleased to announce that we have received notice that clinics may transition into providing care for patients (following closure March 16, 2020 recommended by the regulatory College of Chiropractors of Ontario to suspend regular practices)  The well-being and safety of our patients and community always comes first.  We are thankful for your understanding.  Priority is focused on patients requiring physical therapeutic interventions to reduce pain/manage symptoms significantly influencing their quality of life/functioning.  We will be transitioning to seeing priority patients the week of June 1, 2020 (starting June 4).  Patients will be informed and screened through our clinic's telehealth measures, email contacts, and online updates, as well as downloadable/printable forms (see below).  See you soon!

Please familiarize yourselves with the symptoms of a possible COVID-19 infection, and whether or not you fall into a high risk category with your age, health conditions, environment (workplace, occupation, etc.) and family/friend exposures.

Call in to book.  You will be screened upon booking, and when you arrive for your appointment, so that you can be given helpful instructions.  Signage on the clinic entrance helps remind persons/patients to stop before entering and call in with questions, or for instructions.  We will make every effort possible to contact patients with concerns and questions by phone as a telehealth measure to assist with physical distancing, reduce exposure risks, and provide guidance.  You can be assured that all safety measures, including proper sanitization between every patient, the use of barriers for staff, physical distancing of seating, touch free soap dispensers and sanitizer stations, as well as appropriate PPE worn by your chiropractor, will be implemented.

Patients must help us update their individual health records by completing a revised healthcare history form downloadable here [Downloadable Forms].  Please complete these forms and bring them with you on your first appointment, along with the (unsigned) Informed Consent Forms.

These forms are also available at the clinic entrance within the building if patients are unable to download the forms.  Having them completed prior to your scheduled visit will save time, and ensure effective physical distancing within the clinic between patients for your safety and others.

What you need to bring:

1.  Updated healthcare forms you have printed from our clinic website (2 pages), or have previously picked up outside our clinic entrance and have filled out at home.

2.  Informed Consent Forms (2 pages) that are unsigned.

3.  Cellphone, to contact the reception before you come in for your instructions.

4.  Face covering or mask should be worn (unfortunately the limited PPE for healthcare professionals prohibits us from dispensing masks to patients).
