Update on COVID-19 (Corona Virus) for our Patients Week of 3/23/2020
The Federal Government has Declared Physical Therapy "Essential Workers" and they have asked us to remain open as much as possible. There are two reasons for this:
First we must help those patients who are recovering from surgery, or are being released from hospitals, or need to remain working in their own "essential job", so that they can recover, and
We need to keep people out of the primary care physicians offices, hospitals and emergency rooms so that they can attend to those who really are sick.
The State of California has declared that all patients that have commercial insurance, and do not need to be in the office should recieve telehealth service, and should be covered in the same manner as if they were in the office for the service. This is essentially a therapy visit via remote connection so that you can continue your self isolation and physical therapy in the safety of your homes.
So we have two choices for you:
If you really need to be in the office, we are here for you. We are prepared and taking the appropriate measures as outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for the protection and safety of our staff and patients.
If you are more appropriate to stay home, then please do so. But we can continue your physical therapy in most cases via remote connection.
In either case please communicate with out office as to your personal prefrences. And stay healthy!
