Instructions for Safe In-Person Appointments in the Time of COVID-19

Because of Covid-19 I have had to adjust my usual routine for patients. I will be taking every precaution to keep you, myself and other patients safe so please don’t come in if you are sick, coughing or sneezing, have a fever or gastrointestinal distress outside of your norm. There will be a short questionnaire that you must fill out for every visit.

Please time your arrival at your appointment time to just on time, not before, because I will not have anyone waiting in the waiting room at this time for everyone’s safety.

I will ask you to wash your hands and go directly back to the treatment room. At the end of your treatment I will take payment and schedule future visits also in the treatment room. I will not have any help at this time so if for some reason we are running later than expected you will need to make your next appointment online or call my answering service at 360-483-3728. First visits take up to an hour and Return visits will be about 45 minutes.

My office is conveniently located in the beautiful Bellingham Towers, 119 N. Commercial Street, Suite 1020 located across the street from Mount Baker Theater. There is metered street parking on streets surrounding the building.

Please wear a mask as it will be required for entry into the clinic. I will be wearing one too. Please wear loose, comfortable clothing where I can get below the knee and below the elbow easily. I will make you as comfortable as I can. Please let me know if you get cold easily or feel too hot.

I fully intend your acupuncture experience to be safe and pleasant as well as helpful so let me know if there ever is a problem. I look forward to seeing you soon.

Thank you so much,

Jill A. Likkel, LAC
