An Update from Wellsport
Telemedicine at WellSport
WellSport is happy to announce that patients are now able to schedule telemedicine visits with all of our providers. This new and easy to use option will allow our providers to contact patients directly for their appointments. On the day of the appointment, telemedicine patients will receive a text message that contains a link giving them access to a virtual waiting room. When ready, the provider will connect with the patient and the appointment will begin.
Telemedicine is an effective and safe option that can be accessed from the comfort of your own home and allows you to still receive quality care. Call our office to make an appointment or learn more about our telemedicine appointment option.
WellSport is also happy to announce to patients that we are now also scheduling mobile home visits. This new option will allow our providers to continue treatment without the patient having to leave their home. The practitioner will arrive at your home with all necessary equipment for treatment including table and cleaning supplies. The practitioner will clean all surfaces prior to and after treatment and arrive in a fresh polo. All necessary precautions will have been taken to ensure your home stays a clean and safe place.
Mobile visits are a safe way to continue care and be able to receive manual treatment without having to leave your home. Call our office to make an appointment or learn more about our mobile appointment options.
What to expect
At WellSport, we’re making every effort to ensure the safety of both our patients and staff. The day before your appointment you will receive a text message screening each patient for symptoms or possible exposure. If you answer yes to any of the questions, we will ask that you either reschedule or convert your appointment to a telemedicine appointment (see above.) We have waived all cancelation fees during this time, so there is no financial burden for canceling an appointment. There are also CDC compliant signs posted around the office, including the front door asking patients to not enter if they can answer yes to any of the questions. Patients who present with a medical emergency will be directed to the local ER.
Patients who exhibit no symptoms and have answered no to the additional questions will be checked in and either be seated in the waiting room or immediately placed in a treatment room. If the patient does have to wait, there will be no other patients present in the waiting room. We have staggered the practitioners schedules to avoid congestion in the office. Patients will remain in the same room with one practitioner to avoid unnecessary contact.
The treatment rooms are sanitized before and after each patient. The lobby, front desk and entrance doors are being sanitized several times a day. Doctors are following all CDC recommendations and taking their temperatures upon arrival and throughout the shift as well as washing their hands between each patient.
Please feel free to contact our office if you have any additional questions about our sanitization protocols.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we work to keep everyone safe so we may keep our doors open for you!
