Prepare for Your Appointment

Patient Instructions

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, concerns or suggestions.

An Acknowledgement/Consent Form and Screening Survey will be sent via email 24 hours before your appointment(s). If you have traveled within the last two weeks, please wait to schedule your appointment. *Please notify me if you develop symptoms of COVID-19 or test positive within 14 days of your last visit.*

  •  Arrive a few minutes before your appointment since the waiting area is closed and the doors will be locked until I am ready for you. If you wait in the car, make sure you are comfortable as this could affect the screening. (If you require assistance of a parent/guardian, they will also need to follow these instructions and stay in the room with you while wearing a mask for the duration of the treatment.)
  • Everyone entering the building will have a touchless thermometer and pulse oximeter reading outside before entering. A temperature of under 100°F is required. You may want to check your temperature on the day of your appointment.
  • It is required that everyone wears a mask to their appointment, for the duration of the treatment. If you do not have one, I will provide one for you. If you do not want to wear a mask or have a condition that makes it difficult for you to wear one, please do not expect to be treated. If I need to see your tongue for diagnosis, I will ask you to remove the mask briefly.
  • Patients will be required to wash their hands before and after the treatment, or use hand sanitizer. I will escort you in and out of the building.
  • All payment will be contactless, and therefore a credit card in your account will be required to make your appointment online. The transaction will be processed during or after your treatment and you will receive a receipt via email. Otherwise, a check for $85 payable to Kim Nguyen, L.Ac. can be accepted pre-treatment.
  • All new patients will have a virtual consultation prior to receiving their first treatment. Established patients are recommended to schedule a virtual consultation if they need to address a new condition (i.e. acute pain or injury) or reevaluate and discuss her/his treatment plan.

Tips :

★ Leave your personal belongings in your car and bring only necessary items.

★ You will have time to change if needed but I will not be providing any linens at this time. Please prepare to expose knees and elbows during the treatment if possible.

★ Stay hydrated after your treatment. I will have water available in the breakroom at your request.

★ Speak up-If you would like me to wear gloves during your treatment I am glad to do so. I will continue to wash my hands before and after each patient.
