Guiding Principles

We are providing telephone and virtual service to help:

  1. Prevent spread of COVID-19 through the community.
  2. Maintain, always, the health, safety and well-being of our patients, employees, physicians, associates, and community at large.
  3. Serve our mandate of helping you on your road to recovery from concussion.

 

Medical Doctors/Assistants/Occupational Therapy/Psychotherapy

MDs and their assistants, for the time being, are still keeping some in-person appointments for patients that require physical exams, maneuvers or physical treatment. The majority of office hours have been converted to telephone appointments. The in-person appointments may be discontinued as more directions and information comes to light as the CoVID situation evolves.

Currently, for appointments that are not offered in-person by our MDs/Assistants, appointments will be telephone appointments unless the MD requests a video call for reasons he/she would have discussed with you during a previous appointment.

Our Occupational therapist and Psychotherapist are offering telephone appointments and video appointments..

You can expect a phone call at the appointment time from our these health care practitioners. Usually, they are running on time. If they are running more than 10 minutes late, you will receive an email advising of the same.
