COVID 19 NOTICE

We have re-opened our clinic for patients as of May 19, 2020!

Our number one priority during this time is ensuring our patients, staff and therapists stay safe. To achieve this, we’ve spent considerable time reviewing all guidelines put forth by WorkSafeBC, the Provincial Health Officer, and our licensing Colleges. To meet these guidelines, we’ve made lots of changes to how our clinic looks, and how we do things. We admit there’ll be some hiccups. When we find a new procedure or policy that doesn’t work, we’ll change it to make it better. In these unprecedented times, we’re all learning as we go.

As our Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry, likes to say “We’re all in this together.” Just like our therapists and staff are changing how they work to keep you safe, we’re asking you, our patients, to change a few things too. Don’t worry, none of them are hard. We just ask for your diligence and understanding to help keep us and our families safe too.

We’ve compiled a list on our website of all the changes we’ve made to ensure our clinic remains as safe as possible. Once you click the “go to website” button, you’ll see a link on our homepage. Please take the time to review, and if you have any questions or need clarification, just give us a call or shoot us an email.

Thank you for your continued loyalty, understanding, and cooperation.
