Optimal Health in the Time of COVID-19

Like it or not, COVID-19 is going to be with us for a while. I've evaluated risk and the need for ongoing management of Diabetes, Pre-Diabetes, PCOS, and Obesity and have

decided to resume a normal schedule with precautions in place.

In addition to my personal commitment to frequent hand-washing, office sanitization, and wearing a mask while in the presence of all people who don't live in my own household, I have made the following decisions regarding clinical practices at Emerald City Wellness for the foreseeable future:

  • Appointments will be conducted virtually (via Zoom or telephone) if possible.

  • Body Composition, New Patient Assessments, and Physical Assessments will be scheduled as in-office visits with precautions.

  • PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND AN IN-PERSON APPOINTMENT IF YOU HAVE ANY cold/flu symptoms. Late cancelation fees will be waived for in-person appointments canceled due to COVID-19 symptoms.

  • As a condition of entering The Saturn Building, everyone is required to wear a mask at all times when in the building, including the  Emerald City Wellness clinic space.

  • Please leave any unnecessary items in your vehicle.

  • On arriving at the office, the door will be open and you'll be asked to use hand sanitizer as you enter. 

  • There should be no need to touch the door or any items in the office other than the body composition machine and the leather chair. These are thoroughly cleaned following each patient visit.

  • Any equipment used during an assessment (blood pressure cuff, stethoscope, etc.) is cleaned thoroughly between patient visits. 

  • During appointments, we will maintain a 6-foot distance unless medically necessary.

  • All payments will be made via the online scheduling system so there will be no handling of cash, checks, or credit cards.
