COVID-19 office procedures

My office continues to be open, and I am taking extra precautions to prevent the transmission of Covid-19.  The following protective procedures are in place for the office:

  1. Patient visits will be spaced so that they will not be in the waiting area with other patients.
  2. After each patient leaves, all surfaces such as tables, desk, chairs, computer, Interac terminal, door handles, faucets, taps, toilet, floors will be disinfected.
  3. Each patient before visiting will receive by e-mail or by phone, the public health guidelines that define when NOT to come in to the office or when they will be refused entry.
  4. All in-office appointments can be by phone or Skype.  You will receive a call before your in-office appointment to see if you would prefer in-office, phone or Skype.

Please click to view the public health measures to determine if you will be allowed to have an in-office visit.

Thank you for your understanding and patience during this challenging time.  If you would like naturopathic guidance for your immune system and protecting yourself against this virus and others, please book an appointment using the link to the right or by calling the office.  Please state if you would like in-office, phone or Skype appointment.  Thank you.
