COVID-19 Office Update

Our appointment structure and the entire logistics of how we do business has been adjusted to follow CDC guidelines for treatment during this COVID-19 outbreak.

As an essential services provider, we are able to assist our clients during this time for urgent care chiropractic and acupuncture visits. Guidance on Executive Order 202.6 | Empire State Development

In order to safely attend in-person chiropractic and acupuncture services at Lighthouse Wellness Center and minimize risk to others, please inform us before your scheduled appointment, if you have had any of the following symptoms or exposure history in the last 14 days to the present:

  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fever
  • You have been in contact with a person who is COVID-19 positive in the last 14 days and have NOT been tested.
  • Or at least two of these symptoms along with fever and cough: chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell

People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness.

Please contact us before your scheduled visit if you are unsure of your symptom presentation and risk of exposure. We will need to assess the appropriateness of you attending an in-person acupuncture or chiropractic urgent care visit at this time.

What to expect when you arrive at the office

Please be on time for your appointment so we can keep you in the time slot we

have blocked for each person coming in. This will reduce exposure to others as you enter and leave the appointment.

❖ Please call the office phone at 516-794-0414 to let us know you are here. We will tell you when to enter in order to keep the number of people in the waiting area to a minimum.

❖ Remember, during your visit, wash your hands with soap and water before touching the eyes, nose, or mouth and especially before adjusting your face mask. We are, of course, taking every precaution with wiping down commonly touched surfaces.

❖  We have eliminated the table warmer and cloth pillows to minimize surface exposure, and continue to follow our established cleaning protocols with disinfectant wipes and sprays for the table, headpiece, bolsters and equipment. Before and after each visit, the treatment room will be thoroughly cleaned including the rug, chair, and wall where personal items are hung will be sprayed with Lysol. The room will be left empty for a half an hour to an hour before the next client enters.

❖  When your appointment is complete you may schedule your next visit at the front desk or call us later if you do not wish to remain in the waiting area. We are accepting payments at the time of service and are also offering online payment, please let us know which one you prefer.

Thank you for following these guidelines and we look forward to seeing you!
