COVID-19
A Message from Primary Spine & Rehab

As the concerns about the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) continue, we thought it would be helpful to share an update on what Northeast Premier Physical Medicine is doing to make your future appointment as safe as possible.

We are currently seeing patients for both in-person care and by telehealth. Please call the office to see if your insurance covers telehealth, as most do at this point.

The first step we took was to educate our workforce using validated resources such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), and the US Department of Health.

The second step we took was to evaluate our ability to continue to provide services without increasing exposure risks to you, to our visitors, and staff. As part of that process, we are including some additional measures during the check in process and when patients are making appointments.

  • Have you had any contact with anyone diagnosed with COVID-19, with any person(s) under investigation for COVID-19, or anyone with flu-like symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath and/or a diminished sense of taste or smell)?
  • Have you had any worrisome symptoms: fever, cough, shortness of breath, or a diminished sense of taste or smell in the past 14 days. We are also asking all patients to call the clinic prior to arriving if they have any flu/virus-like symptoms.

The third step we took was to intensify our housekeeping & infection control procedures to assure that we have minimized contact with anything or areas that could harbor harmful bacteria or viruses.

As our fourth step, we are offering telehealth services from all providers, as covered by insurances and regulated by state & federal laws.

The final step we have taken is to continually educate our workforce and our patient community regarding the COVID-19. We will consistently employ measures to minimize the spread of COVID-19 according to the CDC (and other credible authorities) recommendations and will keep you informed of any changes in protocols.
