COVID-19: Our Commitment to Keeping Our Patient Community Safe
As the healthcare landscape continues to evolve, we continue to take important steps to ensure we maintain the health and safety of our communities. At MyoCore, the health of our patients, team members and communities are our top priority.
Our clinics are open and fully operational at our regular clinical hours. We’re committed to maintaining a safe environment with elevated clinical best practices around patient care and clinical hygiene.
We recommend taking these steps to increase your immune function:
- Getting an adequate amount of sleep
- Get light to moderate exercise
- Eat a balanced diet; especially one high in protein and healthy fats (components of a healthy diet that are said to be immune building blocks)
- Increase your intake of Vitamins C, D, B12 and Zinc
Our commitment to operating a safe and healthy environment for your patients and staff is focused on these key areas:
Established clinical hygiene best practices
We have implemented site-wide clinical hygiene efforts. These include sanitizing adjusting tables, exam equipment and tables between all adjustments and exams, as well as enforcing a more stringent hand-washing policy. Our clinical staff will refrain from coming to work if they are not feeling well and a doctor’s note will be required to return to work.
Communication across our patient and staff communities
We are dedicated to ensuring our patients and staff stay up-to-date on the constantly evolving nature of this situation. All employees are receiving formal updates on a daily basis with the most current information available so they may effectively communicate with our patients.
Screening all patients
In order to protect the health and safety of our patients and communities, MyoCore is not currently accepting patients who have a known exposure to, or have been diagnosed with COVID-19.
Appointment availability & cancellations
We’re committed to providing the highest level of patient care during this time. If you need to cancel an appointment, please call your clinic. If you have traveled outside the United States, or are demonstrating any combination of the following symptoms: fever, cough and/or shortness of breath, we ask that you reschedule your appointment at this time.
We will continue to post updates here and send them via email, as well as have your clinics keep you updated upon, during and after each visit. We thank you for being a valued member of our patient community and allowing us to continue to provide you with the highest quality of care and communication during the time of COVID-19. It’s our mission to lead our patients and communities to a life of optimum health and wellness. We look forward to seeing you in our clinics and supporting you through this challenging time.
