First of all, our hearts go out to everyone who have been affected by this pandemic. The team at Sport & Spine-Bradley Pfeiffer, DC is committed to the health and safety of our wonderful patients and staff as well as the entire Bend community. As such, we are open by appointment and seeing patients with an abundance of caution which includes following precautionary guidelines, sanitation standards and best practices for chiropractic healthcare facilities outlined by the state of Oregon, the CDC and other governmental health agencies at a minimum.
Here are some of the steps we are currently implementing:
As we are maintaining a very limited occupancy to allow for social distancing, our services are available by appointment only. When you arrive for your appointment, please call us at 541-383-4585 to confirm the provider is ready for you as our waiting room area is occupancy restricted.
Patients requesting appointments are screened over the phone for potential COVID-19 exposure or symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath), and are only scheduled for a visit if meeting the safety criteria.
Our providers and staff are required to stay home if they are ill, or have been in close contact with anyone with respiratory symptoms, or anyone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the past 14 days.
Patients and staff/providers are required to wear masks in the clinic. We can provide you with a mask if you need one.
Upon entering the clinic, patients will be screened for fever with a touchless infrared thermometer. A patient with a temperature above 100 degrees Fahrenheit will need to be rescheduled.
Patients entering the clinic are next required to either wash their hands with soap and water or use hand sanitizer provided at our front desk.
We are thoroughly cleaning and sanitizing all areas of our clinic between patient appointments with medical grade disinfectant. Rest assured your room will be clean and sanitary for your visit.
We are so proud of our patients and everyone in our Bend community for adhering to the government guidelines and helping to mitigate the coronavirus pandemic in central Oregon. We are also so thankful to our brave front line doctors, nurses and medical staff that have faced COVID-19 head on and helped those overcome their illness. We are also thankful as well to the grocery store, food service and other workers that have continued to provide for our essential human needs. Thank you to all of you. Let's continue to take care of each other.
