Brookdale Health is open and has been open safely during the entire pandemic.
We know it is difficult to change our lifestyle to cope with the pandemic. Many have been separated from family members and our normal routine for many months.
We want to thank all of our patients/friends who have trusted us to serve them during this daunting pandemic time. We had furloughed all but 5 staff members at the beginning of the pandemic and now are operating with about 15 staff. We continue to have a full provider team of two Doctors of Chiropractic, Dr. Lutz and Dr. Frisch, and three Doctors of Physical Therapy Dr. Wynia, Dr. Talbot and Dr. Crowley along with two physical therapist assistants Evan Gorton and Tom Marcio. All have specialized training and expertise in treating motor vehicle injured patients.
We want to reinforce our actions to keep you safe in our clinic:
Treatment rooms and equipment are disinfected after each patient.
Waiting room, doorknobs, and all other common areas are cleaned and disinfected regularly throughout the day.
Patients are screened for travel outside the country or COVID-19 symptoms and are not allowed in clinic treatment.
All patients and staff wear masks.
Patients have their temperature taken every visit.
Staff have their temperature taken every day they work.
Although in-person chiropractic and physical therapy care is the most advantageous, telemedicine is available and encouraged for at-risk patients.
Patients are encouraged to wash their hands at our facilities prior to treatment.
Waiting room has been reorganized for social distancing and we do our best to get patients back into treatment as quickly as possible to eliminate waiting time.
We have built new offices for our providers so they can be socially distanced from colleagues.
We ordered new equipment and expanded our physical therapy to 2,500 square feet on the second floor so patients and staff can stay socially distanced from other patients.
We ask that family members, drivers, or guests of patients do not enter the clinic.
Thank you in your continued trust in Brookdale Health.
Dr. Kent Erickson
