Coronavirus Update: 

Safety Implementations at Metro Pain Group.

Metro Pain Group understands that the rapidly evolving and widespread effects of COVID-19 may result in high levels of concern. We want to reassure our patients that we are still open and seeing patients either at the clinic or via telehealth. Please note that our clinic hours have been reduced to 9:00am – 5:00pm. This will not affect telehealth consults.

We are closely monitoring the spread of novel coronavirus. The health of everyone in our community, and our wider community, is our biggest priority. We are taking proactive steps to keep our patients, visitors and staff safe.

  • All patients are being screened both prior to their visit and on the day of their visit. For patients who have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 or have travelled from a country heavily impacted by COVID-19, appointments will be rescheduled as telehealth (online consults).

  • All visitors are being screened when entering our building.
  • We increased the number of hand hygiene stations across our building.
  • We minimised the risk of contamination by reducing the flow of people entering our facilities. Most of our non-medical employees work remotely and our patients are encouraged to schedule telehealth consults.

As the situation changes, we will continue to assess these procedures and update them as needed to protect our patients’ health.
