Our clinics are open with some modifications to services and practices in order to keep our clients and staff safe.

While you are at the clinic:

  • Please wear a mask at all times (your own mask, or a mask provided by our clinic).
  • Please clean your hands with alcohol-based sanitizer upon arrival and after any time they become soiled (soap and water is also available in the bathrooms and clinic rooms).
  • Please maintain a physical distance of (2 meters/6.5 feet) between all other clients and staff unless a procedure or assessment requires it.

  • Our clinic rooms have enhanced cleaning
  • Our staff are wearing additional Personal Protective Equipment
  • In-person appointments are being limited as much as possible – some telephone services are being offered.

*Some services are still not available, please ask the Administrative Assistants about your specific needs and when/where they may be able to be met.
