NOTE- We are currently NOT ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS.
We are restricting our practice to acute and urgent cases IN OUR ESTABLISHED PATIENTS ONLY . That means if you are coming in for a specific problem we are allowed to see you as an essential / critical business. We are very sorry for the confusion over this. We’ve been quite confused ourselves as different rulings, edicts, and interpretations keep coming out. At this time the acute/urgent restrictions are in place until April 14, but may be extended.
Having said this, we are dramatically condensing our schedule over the next 2 weeks- week we will open just Monday and Thursday.
We will require that each patient attest to all of the following at each visit. This is to protect our patients and our staff.
____I have not had any fever, cough, shortness of breath or other symptoms of the current viral threat in the last 2 weeks.
____I have not been in close proximity to anyone who has tested positive for current viral threat in the last 2 weeks.
____In the last 2 weeks. I have not traveled to New York, China, Europe or the Colorado mountains – Summit, Eagle, Pitkin, San Miguel counties, etc.
____I understand that my doctor, Glenn D. Hyman, will follow all CDC prevention guidelines before and during my visit but he cannot guarantee that I will not contract the virus known as Covid-19. I understand and accept this risk.
____I assert that my visit today is for a specific problem (ie, back pain, neck pain, headaches, etc) and is not a routine or “maintenance” visit.
We are constantly monitoring this situation. We continue to take all CDC mandated precautions, and to ensure that patients who come in do not encounter any other patients.
As we stay open we are implementing a few procedural changes to practice social distancing within our office. In order to do that we will:
- Limit the number of daily appointment spots available
- Bring patients into treatment rooms and out of the waiting room as quickly was we can
- Continue thoroughly disinfecting each treatment room after each patient
We ask of you:
- If you are sick, have a cough or have a fever please don’t come in (please stay home entirely).
- If you have been exposed to anyone who has tested positive for Covid-19, please don’t come in (again you should self-quarantine)
- Please try to come as close to your appointment time as you can (we want to avoid having several people in our waiting rooms).
We still fully intend to operate our normal schedule. As I said last week, we have always taken steps to prevent spread of viruses: flu virus, norovirus, various other stomach viruses, and cold virus (which is also a coronoa virus).
These things are almost always circulating in some form or fashion. We will continue to take steps to prevent the spread of this new virus. These steps include hand sanitizing after each patient visit, table disenfecting, and so forth. We do have gloves in the office and if you would prefer that Dr. Samantha or myself wear them during your treatment, just ask.
We will continue to follow all advisories and directives from the state and Federal governments.
Please make sure to stay home if you are sick, wash your hands, and avoid large crowds. Move away from heavy sneezers and coughers. Use hand sanitzer and good hygeine practices.
With some common sense and persistence we will all get through this together.
