COVID-19 UPDATE

We at Living Well Dallas Functional Medicine Center want you to be as healthy and well-informed as you can be during this trying time. The safety of our patients, clients, and staff are of the utmost importance. We are always working diligently to maintain a clean and sanitized facility at all times, washing our hands frequently and disinfecting rooms between patients as well as disinfecting the remainder of the office.  With COVID-19 concerns we have continued to implement increased sanitizing efforts to help further protect our clients and community.

In addition to our standard disinfecting procedures we will be increasing our frequency of sanitizing all touched surfaces such as door knobs, counter tops, light switches, etc. to every hour.  Our staff has also been instructed to keep personal contact to a minimum and if feeling ill or experiencing any symptoms of illness to remain at home.

Virtual Appointments
For those patients scheduled during the next two weeks, we offer video and phone conferencing for appointments so you can continue your care and stay at home. We can easily switch your appointment. 

We will remain open with regular business hours and our staff is prepared to continue to provide quality care for you during this time of uncertainty.  We will continue to modify and update any protocols as best needed to care of you and our community.  Thank you for your continued support, trust and cooperation during this time.
