COVID-19

IMPLICATIONS/PROTOCOL

The Practice will be CLOSED during the 21 day Lock-down period, Telehealth consultations and emergency appointments are available

After difficult consideration I have decided to close my practice for the 21 day Lock-down period from 30 March 2020 - 16 April 2020.

 

This is one of the hardest decisions I had to make in the last 5 years. Closing the practice may lead to financial ruin as a sole proprietor but does contribute to flattening the curve of distribution of the COVID-19 virus and protecting you, my patients, and family.

Video Consultations and home care advice (45 minute sessions) will be made available through CLINIKO, an email will be sent with a link to the consultation. Note that these consultation are soon to be covered by the medical aid schemes but are currently charged as cash/EFT consultations only.

In the event of an emergency you are welcome to contact me on 0782737303 or 0614087987. Emergency appointments consists of in-depth logistics, pre- and post appointment, to assist you to the practice during this period. During the Lock down I would rather avoid these consultations as Chiropractic care are not essential in assistance of minimizing the spread of the COVID-19 virus but are allowed as we are healthcare practitioners with authority to practice during these troublesome times.

 

Kindly note that the utmost care is being taken to ensure the treatment room is as sterilized as possible before each session commence.

In the case of experiencing any flu- or flu like symptoms - kindly cancel or reschedule the appointment to avoid exposure to the practitioner. Your Chiropractor will also be wearing a face mask and gloves, please don't be alarmed.

If possible, try and arrive as close to your appointment time- to minimize time spent at the office.

Handshaking unfortunately will be limited to prevent the spread of the contact virus.

Treatment sessions are limited to patient only or 1 Guardian accompanying a minor.

Kindly wash your hands before and after the treatment session.

In general if you are concerned that you may have been exposed to the COVID-19 virus, kindly contact 0800 029 999 for assistance.

Let's do our part to minimize the spread of this virus and keep each other safe.
