NOW OPEN FOR REGULAR OFFICE VISITS
It is with great pleasure that after 3 long months of mandatory covid lockdown and now a full year of ongoing covid restrictions, I am still sharing the gift of health with you, IN PERSON 🙂
Dear Practice Members,
I sincerely hope that you and your family and friends are doing well at this challenging time. So much has changed in the world since your last visit and I sincerely regret that your Network Spinal care has been so abruptly interrupted back in March 2020. Your health and well-being, as well as that of our community, is always top of mind.
Well, after the mandatory initial lockdown, I have re-opened and am still serving the community. For your convenience, you can now book and reschedule your appointments online. You will find the link below. But wait, first I would like you to read through this entire page so that you can familiarize yourself with some necessary changes I have had to implement for the time being, while the government is imposing restrictions on how we practice. This way, you will know exactly what to expect when you come into the office for care...
I will be accommodating for the current times and circumstances by making temporary but necessary modifications to the operational procedures of the practice. The government has imposed many mandates and restrictions which makes it very difficult to operate a network practice, but I am committed to navigating through this time while serving you the best that I can.
For the time being, I will be booking patients in a staggered schedule, with the exception of people who share the same household. If you reside in the same household, you can all have a group session. Please take this time for healing and share this gift of health with all of your family members. You are all welcome to attend together for the awesome group entrainments that you are accustomed to. I will be actively cleaning the tables and hand washing in between Practice Members. Government guidelines are asking that everyone wear a mask while visiting the office. It is up to you if you do and you certainly do not have to keep it on while on the table.
With all of the stress and confusion surrounding the current state of affairs, it is vitally important for you to stay as healthy as possible
"GREAT HEALTH IS THE BEST DEFENCE AGAINST ANY DISEASE"
I provide chiropractic care as a means of increasing your health and wellbeing, enhancing your ability to be healthy and resilient to the effects of stress and outside influences, to heal and recover from the challenges and traumas that life often presents, and to provide a vehicle for transformation and awakening.
As a community, we have been put on PAUSE. Pause on work, pause on school, pause on in-person relationships, and pause even on our civil rights and freedoms. Now more than ever, it is critical to get your spinal health back on track.
Network Spinal Care is such an important part of your healthy lifestyle, as it enhances your internal state of wellbeing. This in turn enables all of your positive lifestyle choices to better work for you.
Please note that if you have any COVID symptoms, if you have traveled in the last 14 days or if you have been exposed to anyone who has had a COVID diagnosis, I will not be able to see you until you have gone through the recovery period.
Due to the government restrictions, these are some changes that you can expect at your next visit:
For your first visit back into the office, I will document and discuss with you the risk factors for you to come into this office for care, with regards to possible COVID19 exposure, and I will ask you to consent before we can proceed with your care. If you have any questions, concerns, or hesitations about these risk factors, please do not give consent until such a time that you are satisfied that you have been fully informed and understand the risks, and are willing to proceed. Then, and only then, will we be able to proceed with your care.
ACTIVE AND PASSIVE SCREENING
A COVID19 Health Screening Questionnaire will be presented to you upon arrival. Please ensure that you read, understand, fill out, and sign this form at each visit. You will also see signage at the entrance so that you can pre-screen and determine if you may enter.
PLEASE NOTE THAT SHOULD ACTIVE SCREENING INDICATE THAT YOU HAVE OR MAY HAVE THE COVID-19, I AM REQUIRED TO REPORT THIS TO THE MEDICAL OFFICER OF HEALTH IN ACCORDANCE WITH SECTION 25(1) OF THE HEALTH PROTECTION AND PROMOTION ACT, 1990 AND STANDARD OF PRACTICE S-004: REPORTING OF DESIGNATED DISEASES.
Please make use of the pre-screening questionnaire posted on the entrance door to determine if you should enter and subject yourself to active screening. If you answer yes to any of the questions on the pre-screening questionnaire, please do not enter the office, and contact your family physician or a COVID19 testing center. Information on testing centers is posted on my front door.
Due to the many government mandates and restrictions, and until these are lifted, I am booking only one patient per staggered time slot, unless you are attending with other members of your household. If you are using the online booking platform and would like a group session for members of your household, book one spot for yourself and text me the name of the others that would like to attend, and I will add them manually to your time slot. Appointment times are extremely limited so I am requesting that you please only reserve an appointment if you are 100% committed to being there.
For the time being, and to be of assistance to those who have been financially impacted by the ongoing lockdowns, I will maintain the office visit fee at $50. Your appointment time is reserved just for you. At this time, I am not able to reschedule appointments, accommodate walk-ins, or cancellations. If you use my online booking platform, this will allow you to book and reschedule appointments with at least 14 days notice. In the meantime, if your job, business, or lifestyle has so many variables that you are unable to commit 100% to an appointment time, please do not pre-book your appointment but rather, text me on the day that you would like to come in and I will do my best to accommodate you. Please note that all missed appointments will be billed for the full office fee. If you do not find a time that works for you on the online schedule, please feel free to contact me by text at 416.500.5437, and I will do my best to accommodate you.
If you enjoy a standing, recurring appointment time, please use my online booking platform which will allow you to book 3 months in advance. Please arrive on time and no more than 5 minutes before your session. If you arrive early, you may wish to wait in your car or go for a leisurely stroll, in order to reduce the number of people in the waiting area. If you plan on wearing a mask while attending your appointment, please remember to bring one with you. Please use the restroom at home or at work prior to your visit to minimize contact points in the office.
I have blocked most of the seating from the waiting area and you can stand safely while maintaining a safe distance from others. If you do need to use one of the chairs, please do so. I will ensure that the surfaces of the chair are cleaned after every use.
CLEANING AND DISINFECTION
Appointments will be spread out and schedules staggered in order to allow time for proper cleaning and disinfection. All surfaces will be appropriately disinfected after patient visits according to Public Health guidelines and high traffic contact surfaces will be disinfected at regular intervals throughout the day.
I recognize that this is a lot of information to digest and that the procedures are quite different from the free-flowing natural flow that you have been previously accustomed to. This may appear to be very rigid and unnatural. Let's not kid ourselves, that's because it is! But please understand that I am following rigid and unnatural rules and doing the best that I can in order to be able to continue to be of service to you and your loved ones, in spite of the imposed restrictions and mandates. Following the above guidelines will help us all to ensure that we follow government mandates and provide a safe and comfortable environment for everyone, while still being able to benefit from this beautiful healing work that I wish to share with all of you.
Welcome back, everyone. I am pleased to be of service to you and your family. For now, if you are interested in scheduling an appointment, please make use of my ONLINE BOOKING PLATFORM, or please text me at 416-500-5437 and I will accommodate you as efficiently as possible. The ONLINE BOOKING PLATFORM will give you much more flexibility for booking and rescheduling your appointments. If you have any questions, concerns, or would like some advice during this time of crisis, please feel free to reach out to me by texting 416-500-5437 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I am very much looking forward to reconnecting with you and I can hardly wait to see you in person. It has been way too long!
