COVID-19 Update

New COVID-19 Policies for Aria Integrative Medicine

As we start to transition into the multi-phase approach Govenor Inslee has proposed, Aria Integrative Medicine will now start to take in-person patients on a case by case basis over the course of the next month. As the state continues to make steps to completely reopen we want to assure you that safety is a priority.

We have adopted some policies to help keep patients and staff safe during this uncertain time. In-person visits will occur for patients under the following circumstances:

  • In the last 14 days, patients have NOT had any fever, cough, shortness of breath, or difficulty breathing
  • In the last 14 days, patients have NOT been in close contact with a person who is a suspected COVID-19 patient or a confirmed case of COVID-19 while that person was ill.
  • All patients must wear a mask at the time of their visit and must come alone to their appointment unless they are accompanied by a caregiver that acts as a key party to their healthcare decisions

Telemedicine and phone visits are still preferred at t his time until the Stay Home order has been completely lifted.

If patients have been exposed to COVID-19 or they have symptoms that resemble a COVID-19 infection, they must contact the clinic ASAP.

Steps we are taking to help ensure patient safety:

  • Masks and gloves will be required to be worn by clinic personnel at all times.
  • Temperatures will be taken of each patient to ensure there are no fevers present.
  • Rooms and common areas sanitized after every patient.
  • Providers should wash hands before and after every patient visit with soap and water x 30 seconds.
  • All patients (of both Dr. Bower and Dr. Bennett) will be spaced apart by at least 20 min in between each patient (before and after) to ensure there are as few of patients in the office as possible.

To schedule your phone or video consult at this time, you can do so through the patient portal or online. Phone/video consults are billed based on time, and fees for those visits can be found HERE.  Any supplements that are needed can be ordered online HERE.

Please feel free to reach out to our office if you have any questions!

Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis

Of all of autoimmune conditions that we see, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is one of the most common.
