Please be advised that we are no longer requiring patients to mask to enter the clinic. Some of our practitioners are still continuously masking, based on personal comfort levels, and all of our clinicians are masking for any patient who comes to their appointment in a mask. We are still asking patients to stay home if they have any new symptoms of Covid, cold, or flu, and our staff continues to do the same. Thank you for your patience with this evolving situation.
