COVID-19 Temporary Closure

Dear Patients,

Let me begin by saying that my family and I are healthy and presently have NO SIGNS of COVID-19 infection, nor are we aware of any patients who are currently exhibiting any signs of infection. Many people with the virus have no symptoms for up to two weeks, and there is simply no way to guarantee that any of us have not been exposed to COVID-19 and could be spreading it unknowingly. Therefore, after much consideration, and in an effort to help “flatten the curve,” I have made the difficult decision to temporarily close the practice as of March 21, 2020 through to April 5, 2020.

For those of you with appointments, through to April 5th, we will be contacting you to reschedule. If we have not reached out to you by March 20th, 2020, please get in touch with us so we can update you on the situation, and continue to serve you in your health needs.

We will also be seeing emergency acupuncture cases once per week to prevent undue suffering during this closure. That being said, we will need to remain flexible as new information comes in.

I have a deep commitment to each of you and your health, so this weighs heavily on me. As a complimentary medical care provider, I have great respect for the role of Western Medicine and I am committed to “flattening the curve” of transmission so that I do not unknowingly contribute to overwhelming our hospitals and front-line responders during this critical stage.

However, as a health care practitioner, I am not underestimating the emotional and mental stress this pandemic is causing many of us. I do believe we can offer each other help, companionship and support during this difficult time. I am open to calls, texts and emails if you wish to reach out and contact me. Please do not hesitate to reach out during this closure. I do have an answering service and I receive all messages immediately, and I will return your call as soon as possible. And yes, you can call just to say hi, and chat about life. The goal is to stay connected, and as sane as possible.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. Together, we will “flatten the curve” and provide better health outcomes for EVERYONE in our community.
