COVID-19 UPDATE | JANUARY 12, 2020
NATUROPATHIC HEALTH SERVICES REMAIN OPEN
I am continuing to offer appointments that can effectively take place over the phone via TELEconsult. Click the APPT BOOKING page for guidance on what services may be better provided in-person. Should we determine that the benefits of an in-person appointment outweigh the risks, I have protocols in place to ensure your visit is safe and comfortable.
STEPS I AM TAKING TO ENSURE YOUR SAFETY:
If you book an in-person appointment with me online, you will complete a form to screen for COVID-19 symptoms and risk factors. On the day of your in-person appointment, you will fill out my screening form in my office. I will also be screening myself whenever I see patients in-person.
Appointments are spaced apart to ensure time for disinfection between patients and to maintain physical distancing. Please wait until our scheduled appointment time to come to the front door of the building. At that time, I will come to receive you. You will not need to touch any doorknobs or wait in a common room; I will open doors for you with pleasure!
You will be provided with hand sanitizer on entering my office. Please wear a mask when inside the clinic; I will also be wearing a mask and regularly performing hand hygiene. I am also disinfecting surfaces using a Health Canada approved disinfectant against COVID-19 but non-toxic to humans between each patient.
Thank you, for your patience, cooperation and understanding as we continue to navigate this situation together, safely and with your optimum wellness (always) in mind.
WHAT IS NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE?
Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care system that blends modern scientific knowledge and standard medical training with a broad range of natural and traditional forms of medicine to treat any health concern you may have. The goal of naturopathic medicine is to assess the causes of illness, and to heal the whole patient through individualized treatment. In other words, Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) concern themselves with the “why” as well as with the “what” of an illness or disease.
