At Professional Physical Therapy, the health and safety of our patients is always our top priority. As such, we are diligently monitoring updates to the Coronavirus or COVID-19. We understand this is a challenging time for us, but want to reassure you that we are committed to using preventive measures such as disinfecting our equipment and countertops, washing our hands frequently, and using alcohol-based sanitizer to prevent the spread of Coronavirus, as well as cold and flu. In addition, we are emphasizing and encouraging proper hand hygiene among our patients, and have strategically placed hand sanitizers and wipes throughout our clinics. Our clinicians and staff are happy to employ the use of gloves and/or masks upon request or when necessary.
Please be aware that we are actively engaged in social distancing within our clinics for the health and the safety of you, our staff, and our treating clinicians. When you come in for your appointment, you may encounter measures that include the use of gloves and masks, in addition to increased frequency of cleaning procedures. We have implemented initial screenings to inquire about your health history and any possibility of exposure or symptoms related to COVID-19 before you may begin treatment in the clinic.
Continuing our precautionary methods, we insist that if you are experiencing any of the common cold or flulike symptoms, that you allow our patient care coordinators to reschedule your appointment when you are feeling better. We will continue to monitor the latest Coronavirus updates and will make any changes necessary to help keep our patients and staff healthy.
