Coronavirus Updates

We will update this page with practitioner availability and any other clinic changes as they happen in relation to the coronavirus update and government recommendations.

Our Services

As healthcare providers, we realize that aside from coronavirus, patients continue to have other medical conditions and injuries that need treatment.  We aim to stay open and available to service these needs, while finding a balance with avoiding unnecessary contact to prevent the further spread of this novel virus.  If you feel your treatments can be delayed, we encourage that decision in the hopes it will be temporary.  But we are also doing everything possible to minimize risk in order to provide treatment as needed.

Additionally, it is important to note that none of the services we provide at Elixia can directly prevent, treat or cure coronavirus.  We do have a number of therapies that may help stimulate the immune system, improve sleep, support lung health, other preventive measures, including massage, for otherwise healthy patients.  We encourage you to maximize healthy and preventive habits at home, and only visiting us if needing additional support.

We will continue to stay open as long as practitioners, who individually determine their availability, choose to see patients (see below).  This page will be updated accordingly, with any modifications to scheduling hours.  We have also implemented a more rigorous cleaning routine frequently sanitizing doorknobs, surfaces, and public spaces to ensure the health and safety of patients, providers, and staff. 

If you have questions regarding services or scheduling our staff is here to help.  Alternately, if you have any concerns or further questions about COVID-19, please visit the Oregon Health Authority website at www.oregon.gov/oha or call 211.

Appointments

We are encouraging our patients to reschedule/schedule any office visits (those not requiring hands-on treatment or procedures) as telemedicine visits.  We are currently not scheduling more than 2 patients at the same appointment time, in an effort to reduce the number of people in our waiting room at once.  We also encourage you to not bring any other friends, family members, or children to your office visit.  We are cancelling or rescheduling any patients who exhibit symptoms of COVID-19 or the flu.  Our goal in doing this is to facilitate social distancing and other preventive statewide recommendations for at least the next 2 weeks.

IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING ANY OF THE FOLLOWING PLEASE CALL TO RESCHEDULE YOUR APPOINTMENT: PATIENTS WITH THE FOLLOWING KNOWN CONDITIONS SHOULD AVOID COMING INTO THE OFFICE:
Temperature of 99.6F or greater
Cough
Shortness of breath
Persistent pain pressure in your chest
