COVID 19 Letter
To my valued patients;
My thoughts continue to be with you all and your families. I hope you are all doing well during these difficult and uncertain times. As we all continue to do our part to help our community manage the current state of affairs, I wanted to give you an update on precautions I am taking as well as my schedule for treating patients.
I am taking appropriate measures to disinfect all my equipment in between each patient treatment. This may cause me to run a little behind on my schedule so I simply ask everyone to be patient during this time. Hand sanitizer is available at the front desk as you come in. Due to the shortage of protective masks, I do not have any to offer patients but will be wearing one myself to limit any exposure.
Over the next few weeks I will have limited hours for treating patients. My schedule will be Mon, Wed, and Fri from 8:30-2. If you are needing to get in for treatment and these hours don’t work for you, exceptions to this schedule will be made. If for any reason you are experiencing any of the symptoms of COVID 19 listed on the CDC’s website https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/symptoms.html I ask that you please let me know right away so that appropriate measures can be taken. Your point of contact if you should be experiencing any symptoms that may be related to COVID 19 would be your PCP or St. Charles Medical Center https://www.stcharleshealthcare.org/covid-19.
Although the main Recharge facility is closed and only open for essential appointments, Recharge will have front desk support from 8 am to 1 pm M-W-F as well as be checking online appointment requests, phone messages, and email accounts but bear with us as it may take up to 24 hours to respond. I ask that you also email me at email@example.com for any scheduling requests or changes. I will be checking my email throughout the day and responding to emails as quickly as possible. In light of what’s going on, I will not be implementing my typical cancellation policy but ask that you try to give 24hr notice of any cancellation of your appointment.

Lastly, as many of my patients know, we have implemented a new treatment into the clinic. PEMF Therapy (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field) has been shown to be extremely beneficial in treating pain and inflammation and since we implemented it 2 months ago we have been getting incredible feedback from our patients. Here is a link to some useful info on how PEMF might be useful in helping to manage COVID 19 given it has been shown to be beneficial in managing other viral infections. https://www.drpawluk.com/blog/coronavirus-pemf-and-vitamin-d3/ .
