To our valued patients and community,
As the outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to circulate around the world, and now in the United States, the team at Synapse has been working diligently to determine the best way forward for our clinic, our patients and our community during this outbreak. The Synapse Way has always been to naturally and holistically support individuals with their particular health needs and this current public health concern makes our mission all the more important.
Our goal during this time is to continue to provide timely education along with proactive health and wellness services while mitigating the risks to our staff and the patients we serve. Throughout this process, we urge everyone to keep a level head and to reduce stress as much as possible. One of the best ways for us to reduce our collective worries around this particular topic is to provide accurate, transparent information about the risks associated and the ways in which you can protect yourself.
While a complete understanding of COVID-19 and the associated risks are still under investigation, it is clear that elderly individuals and those with pre-existing medical conditions (such as cardiovascular and respiratory diseases) are most at risk. Because we see a high number of such individuals within our clinic, reducing exposure and transmission at Synapse is of extreme importance.
We firmly believe that the most effective method for reducing overall risk is to practice standard hand-washing and hygiene routines, avoid contact with infected individuals and work diligently to improve your immune function through proper diet, lifestyle choices and nutritional interventions.
As a clinic, Synapse will be implementing several safeguards that will be implemented in order to provide greater protection for our staff and patients. These safeguards include patient and practitioner screenings, increased frequency of routine office cleaning, and increased levels of personal protection when deemed appropriate.
In order to protect our community, we will act to reduce the risk of exposure to susceptible individuals. We would like your help in this effort. If you have been exposed to the virus or have symptoms of the virus, please reschedule your appointments or convert them to be a phone appointment whenever possible. Even if you’re not feeling poorly, you could pass the virus to susceptible individuals. We will also provide phone appointments to current patients and the public to discuss proactive steps that can be made to reduce exposure and to improve immune function.
We are offering phone consultations with members of our team to discuss ways that you can be proactive about your health and immune function. Call us today at (651) 209-9906 for more information on scheduling.
