Covid-19 Information

Keep Your Appointments

It has been a year a time of tension and uncertainty regarding the COVID-19 epidemic. It has transformed our lives, specifically with regard to healthcare. If you’re like the majority of people, you’ve likely tried to stay as far away from the city as you can even if that results in not attending crucial appointments. It’s not always a good decision, especially if you’re suffering from chronic pain due to debilitating conditions.

Our staff works to make sure you are as pain-free as you can, while ensuring that you are safe from the threat of COVID-19. Our aim is to keep our patients as well as the staff as healthy as possible, so we can continue treating every patient in a safe and secure manner.

Our office’s top priority is keeping our patients as well as you protected. We’ve increased our cleaning practices as a result of COVID-19 as well as other measures. We have taken precautions to ensure we provide the safest and cleanest setting for your visit.

Because this virus has caused widespread illness across the globe, we’re doing our part to reduce the spreading of COVID-19. A few of the measures to take to ensure that everyone stays well includes:

  • Masks required by everyone
  • Frequent surface sanitization
  • Contactless temperature screenings
  • Sanitized equipment between patients
  • Ample hand sanitizer stations

We’re also cleaning the offices using the EMist(r) sprayer to ensure that all surfaces and equipment is cleaned. In addition to the cleaning procedures, We’re also offering appointments via telehealth for those who are unable to or don’t feel at ease entering the office.

When you shouldn’t come in

We strongly recommend to not skip appointment times, there may be certain situations that could lead to the spread of the disease where you must contact us immediately and not go in. If you start to exhibit symptoms signs of the COVID-19 then you must make an appointment with us right away and we’ll take action in a timely manner. The symptoms we need to be aware of are:

  • Fever
  • Fatigue
  • Dry cough
  • Body aches
  • Shortness of breath

If you’re not sure of the cause, you can give our office a phone call so we can help you decide whether you should come in or not. If you aren’t able to visit the office, we might be able to make your appointment through telemedicine. It involves a video chat by one of our specialists and allows you to keep in line with your treatment program.

It is crucial that you remain in contact with your doctors and therapists in the event of a pandemic to ensure an effective outcome. In addition, with the closing of the year looming and our patients are being urged to make appointments as soon as possible in order to ensure that they can are able to meet their deductibles for insurance. If you’re in need of scheduling appointments with us, call our office in New Jersey, or book an appointment for a telehealth or regular appointments online today.
