Our Safety Procedures
The care and safety of our staff and patients are of utmost importance at Miranda Naturopathic Clinic. We have been working hard behind the scenes to make the changes necessary so that our office protocols and policies will encompass an even greater level of safety and sanitation than before.
The following clinic procedures are in place in order to offer safe and effective colonic treatments as well as to keep our patients and staff safe by preventing the transmission of COVID-19.
Here is a list of what we are doing to keep you safe:
- Practitioners, staff and patients will be screened daily for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 before coming into the clinic. Patients who exhibit symptoms consistent with COVID-19 will be asked to reschedule.
- Plexi-glass barriers have been installed at the front desk.
- We will be calling each patient the day before their appointment for a COVID-19 screening. Please let us know if you have any symptoms of fever, chills, cough or shortness of breath so we can re-schedule your appointment.
- We kindly ask all our patients to bring and wear a mask from home- to be used during your colonic treatment if you can tolerate it. If you do not have one, masks will be available for $2 at the clinic.
