**As we work hard to keep everyone safe and practice social distancing, we are asking ALL patients to advise us if you have traveled internationally in the last 14 days, been in close contact with another person who has been diagnosed with COVID, and whether you have a cough, fever or shortness of breath.
Prior to the outbreak of COVID-19, our team members would disinfect the adjusting tables before and after shifts, and periodically throughout the day as needed. We have always had disinfectant wipes available to our Practice Members at the adjusting tables. You are more than welcome to use these at any time. Our office is professionally cleaned each week. Due to the recent pandemic, we following strict cleaning policies for the protection of both our staff and our patients. Each staff member maintains rigorous personal hygiene standards as well preparing for every patient interaction. Our Doctors will also be washing their hands frequently, using hand sanitizer, and cleaning the adjustment instrument with alcohol wipes.
We are using EPAs recommended disinfectants across the entire office. All adjusting tables and rooms are cleaned after every use (if not used cleaned every 10 mins.), and taking extra precautions to clean all surfaces of our office throughout the day, including: door handles, keyboards, countertops, computer screens, phone scanners, etc.
Each of our practice members have been instructed to wipe down their tables before use and to place face paper down on the adjusting table prior to laying down for their adjustment. This regular use of face paper serves as an additional safety measure to protect the practice members that we serve.
