Allied Physiotherapy would like to remind all of our patients:
- If you are feeling any flu, cough or cold-like symptoms, please call your respective clinic and let them know as soon as possible
- If anyone in your immediate household or someone you have been in contact with is being tested for COVID-19, we ask that you do not come to the clinic until they receive a negative test result. We can see you virtually during this time.
- A mask is mandatory to enter any of our clinics
- Please wait in your car until your appointment time unless specified by the receptionist that you can enter the clinic early
No need to worry- if you need to stay at home due to medical concerns, work or family commitments, we can convert your current in-clinic appointment to a Virtual appointment at the same time
Just as we ask all of our patients not to enter the clinic if they are feeling unwell, we also ask this of all of our staff and practitioners. If your practitioner is unable to come into the clinic, we may call and switch your appointment to a Virtual session to ensure that you do not miss any appointments on your road to recovery. To make sure that our patients are up to date on all information regarding Virtual appointments, we have put together a few questions and answers below!
We Still Offer Telehealth!
As new information comes from our Provincial Health Officer, Allied Physiotherapy would like to remind you that we are OPEN to assist you on the telephone or our virtual platform through video and telephone (smartphone)! We are staying on top of your health during these challenging times by implementing new innovative approaches to health care. This will ensure you continue to achieve your health and fitness goals.
