As the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) continues, our goal is to keep our community healthy by maintaining a sanitized environment for your treatments and a low client density.
We also now offer video and phone consults with Dr. Diamond as a new strategy to progress your nutrition program and continue your journey towards optimal health.
We are committed to reducing the risk of illness amongst our most vulnerable during the outbreak of flu and virus this season. We have experienced many viruses over the past 30 years of our business (MERS, SARS, Avian flu, swine flu, Zika, Ebola, etc.) and continue to implement policies and procedures for your safety.
All of us, independently and socially, who work in cooperation with the guidelines set forth by the centers for disease control and the World Health Organization will probably save lives and undue suffering. As healthcare professionals, we want to reassure you that we are working diligently to keep you and our staff healthy.
We are serious about our patient’s health and are proud of the care that we provide.
