What to Expect

Covid Protocols

Please review our Covid-19 Safety Protocols before entering all clinic locations.

Before your visit:

We ask that all patients complete a COVID Screening Questionnaire which is sent digitally to your email, 24 hours prior to your appointment time. Check your email! If you answer “yes” to any of the questions, please call the clinic before your appointment for further instructions to reschedule the appointment.

Before the First Appointment

Fill in the Health Intake Form available through Online Booking, which gets emailed back to the office once complete. If you have a paper copy, fill it in and bring it to the first appointment. Due to Covid-19, we can no longer allow for in office paperwork.

What to Bring
  1.  Copies of any recent lab work or tests (blood work, X-rays, ultrasounds, etc.)
  2.  Lists of any medications and supplements you are currently taking, and
  3.  Completed intake form (if you picked up a paper copy).
