Dear valued patient:

Firstly we would like to thank you for your continued support of a family owned, Geelong small business. The situation with Coronavirus is unprecedented on the back of an already difficult start to the year for all Australians. The situation is constantly evolving and we will make every effort to keep you updated as information is made available. At time of writing we are remaining open until such time the government mandates otherwise. A major announcement is due in the next few days but we are confident that Chiropractic and the care provided by chiropractors will mean that we are an essential healthcare service that will remain open during this challenging time.

Secondly we would like to reiterate that every measure is being made around the office to ensure a clean and safe environment for all patients. At Shannon Avenue Chiropractic we have always taken these matters with the utmost importance but have re-doubled our efforts, replacing facepaper after every patient visit, cleaning the treatment tables after every patient consult and ensuring hands are washed and that hand sanitiser is readily available. Staff are also wiping surfaces regular to minimise transmission. We will also do our best to ensure that the government guidelines for social distancing are maintained within the waiting room.

Dr Gooch has undertaken and completed an additional course through the Australian Government about coronavirus and reducing the risk of transmission which can be seen attached here for reference:

In the event that our business is forced to close, we will be exploring our options of either home visits if they are deemed appropriate and/or tele consultations. While we can not deliver adjustments over this media there are many aspects of health that can be discussed, explained and demonstrated such as home exercise and stretching programs. We will provide more information on this if needed.

If you have any concerns/questions or just need to reach out and let us know how your going in this difficult time where we potentially face isolation please do not hesitate to contact us at the office on 0352212888 or you can reach Dr Gooch via email at gooch.chiro@gmail.com
