As the Coronavirus situation evolves, we want to assure you, our clinic community, that we are taking necessary steps to minimize risks to our patients and team members. We are adhering to recommendations from CDC and public health officials and have prepared a list of ways you can protect yourself and your family. In addition, we have updated our COVID-19 clinic policies. We continue to recommend treatment plans according to each of our own individual patient needs. If you have additional questions, please let us know.
Our updated COVID-19 policies:
- For our updated clinic hours, please call us at 541-770-5563
- Our office consults will be by phone or virtual visits to maintain social distancing and limit overall foot traffic inside our building. If you have concerns about your insurance billing, please speak with our front desk. Virtual appointments (not phone appts) should be paid by insurance during this time.
- We will remain open, with reduced hours, for current patients receiving procedure treatment series. All new patients or new procedure series may be scheduled for a later date.
- Non-urgent treatment may be postponed to a later date, as needed.
- We will waive late cancelations, but please do let us know if you plan to cancel, as some treatments require advanced preparation and will incur a supplies fee.
- We ask that everyone wash their hands with soap for at least 20 seconds upon entering.
- Our Medicinary will have reduced hours until further notice. We request that you call or email to place your orders and arrange for payment with a credit card over the phone.
- We are no longer taking walk in appointments or walk in Medicinary orders at this time.
Symptoms of COVID-19:
Symptoms may include fever, cough, and shortness of breath. If you or a loved one is experiencing any of these symptoms, please call our clinic or your local health department for advice on how to proceed. To prevent the spread to others, please do not come into the clinic.
How does COVID-19 spread?
The virus is believed to spread through close person-to-person contact (about 6 ft radius). The virus is carried through respiratory droplets, especially sneezes and coughs which can be inhaled. It’s also possible for the virus to spread by contact with surfaces, like doorknobs or counters, but is not the primary mode of infection. An actively sick individual may or may not appear to be sick, so use precautions at all times.
The CDC and the World Health Organization are recommending the use of precautions to protect yourself, your family, and your coworkers from the spread of coronavirus (and other viruses). Here are several you can adopt:
- Keep your immune system strong by eating a healthy diet, getting enough sleep and regular exercise, and by managing any health conditions.
- Stay home if you are sick and avoid close contact with people who are sick
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
- Cover your cough or sneeze with your elbow- not your hand- if a tissue is not available.
- If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
