Dear Pearl Health Community,
There is no doubt that we are in the midst of one of the most stressful and trying times that our country has faced in recent years. It is with confidence that I write to all of our patients, staff, and practitioners that we are dedicated to providing the most up to date, evidence informed, and compassionate care that we have always committed to our diverse community.
We at PHC have met the challenges of the Corona Virus pandemic (COVID-19) by implementing extra precautions to preven its spread and to care for individuals with COVID-19. Our staff and providers utilize enhanced cleaning measures, masks and shields, screening protocols prior to office visits, and many other precautions to prioritize the safety of our patients and broader community. Our goal has been to keep the clinic open and continue to offer our full spectrum of primary care, acupuncture, chiropractic, and mental health services. We believe in meeting our patients where they are in their unique healthcare journey. By offering both telemedicine and in-office visits we can best support the ends and comfort level of our patients so that they can receive the care they require.
We are proud to offer COVID nasopharyngeal PCR testing and serum antibody body screening to help inform our patients on their COVID status. PHC strives to empower each member of our community to do their part in reducing the spread of the virus. Patients with symptoms, known exposures, or concerns are welcome to call and schedule a COVID Consult to determine testing, preventative practices, and supportive care are best for each individual. Our drive-up COVID testing visits provide additional safety for our staff and patients.
Despite the many challenges our society is facing, we remain focused on supporting our community at large while providing our patients with tools to stay healthy and optimize their wellness. We are honored to be part of your healthcare team. Please let us know how we can best support you at this time.
Best wishes for health,
Elliot Taxman, ND, MS
