COVID-19 UPDATE, 5/26/2020:
Acupuncture appointments at WomanCare will resume when our region enters Phase 2 of re-opening. Many new infection control procedures will be in place for everyone’s protection, including a requirement that patients wear a mask at all times, and be pre-screened before appointments and upon arrival for any potential COVID-19 symptoms or exposure.
We are now booking tentative appointments for mid-June, in anticipation of reaching Phase 2 by that time. We will prioritize appointments for high-needs patients*, but will try to accommodate all who seek treatment.
As of today, New York State is NO LONGER requiring a doctor’s referral note before a patient (established or new) can be seen by an acupuncturist. We do still ask that you complete a special COVID-19 consent form in advance of your visit. It can be emailed, faxed, sent by post, or brought in completed on the day of your visit.
Everyone is still encouraged to make use of telemedicine herbal & acupressure appointments as much as possible. Telemedicine is appropriate for many conditions, including: menstrual and fertility problems, headaches, allergies, respiratory symptoms (including COVID recovery), digestive disturbances, and some kinds of pain. If you are unsure if telemedicine is appropriate for you, please give a call and we will consider together.
As conditions are fluid, these timelines and requirements may change, and will be updated accordingly. We are grateful for your patience and understanding as we navigate this new terrain together!
*High-need patients are people who are:
– experiencing pain or distress that significantly impairs their ability to move through activities of daily living, and that can not be fully managed by remote interventions
– pregnant, and experiencing intractable nausea/vomiting OR other symptoms best addressed by a non-pharmaceutical intervention, such as: premature contractions, hypertension, anxiety/depression, and delayed onset of labor
– in need of timely management for other serious and/or intractable symptoms, at the recommendation of a doctor or midwife
WomanCare welcomes all women regardless of age, race, religion, ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation. Male family members of current patients are also welcome for treatment.
