To my current and prospective patients,
I hope that you are doing well during these difficult times and taking the necessary steps to ensure your health and the health of your loved ones. As you are aware, this is a rapidly evolving situation and requires reactiveness as well as proactiveness. As such, I will be conducting all patient visits as telemedicine visits (phone or video calls) rather than in-office appointments effective immediately, until further notice.
If you do not wish to have telemedicine visits (you wish to see a naturopathic doctor in person) or if you require a visit that can only be done in-office (IV therapy, physical exam, blood draw etc.), you will be able to schedule an appointment with one of my colleagues for the time being who will be able to oversee your case.
Cross Roads Naturopathic is taking all necessary precautions to ensure the safety of patients. This includes proper hygiene practices, as well as screening procedures implemented by Cross Roads Medical walk-in clinic. Cross Roads Naturopathic is also offering the option for appointments on Sundays when the walk-in clinic is closed, and the entire clinic is less busy overall.
Thank you for your understanding. Only by working together will we be able to help protect those who are most vulnerable in our communities.
