During the COVID-19 crisis, our centers take extra precautions to prevent the potential spread of illness:
- Any staff with fever or other symptoms are mandated to stay off work and follow all CDC guidelines before returning. Any patients who are running a fever or experiencing symptoms are asked not to come into offices.
- All employees are equipped with proper PPE, wash their hands and use hand sanitizer before and after patient contact.
- TMS treatment rooms are sanitized before, during and after each patient visit.
- Our leadership team is closely following CDC guidelines and will adjust safety precautions as necessary.
- Patients receive telemedicine appointments where possible for consultations and evaluations to reduce in-person contact.
