Dear Patients and Friends
As we are in alert LEVEL 3 we are not currently open for normal practice.
However we have received notification from the Ministry of Health that because chiropractic care “is an essential service when responding to emergency and acute care needs” we may be able to see you if needed.
Today we received specific guidelines from the Chiropractic Registration Board on the details of this practice. This specifies who we can take care of; under what circumstances, and how we can take care of your safely.
If you urgently need chiropractic care then please get in touch. We will triage your needs on the phone and determine whether it is safe and appropriate to see you.
Please note the clinic is still closed and we have no chiropractic assistants, but I am very happy to see you on an ‘as need’ basis. Please text me and then I can give you a call back to organize what might be needed.
Dr Patrick Fong 021 825 059
Dr Benson Huang 021 160 6636
When we get in touch, we are obligated to ask you the following questions:
• We will need to triage your condition to gauge how you are doing and if in fact you need urgent care
• Do have any of the following symptoms? sore throat, cough, shortness of breath, high temperature (>38C) that are perhaps consistent with a COVID-19 infection
If an appointment is needed your doctor will guide you through the process.
Yours in health
New Lynn Chiropractic
