COVID-19 CLINIC IMPACT-updated July 7th 2020
The impact of Covid-19 on our business, like so many others, has been immediate, and particularly difficult in the midst of our 10th Birthday year.
We would like to assure our patients that our focus on hygiene is even greater than ever, and all visitors are screened prior to and on arrival at our clinic are required to use hand sanitiser and sign a declaration of good health. Our appointments are widely spaced to enable frequent sterilisation. If you have a mask you should wear it. Our doctor has viral filter masks which will be worn during all face to face patient appointments. Patients are asked to bring their own pen and drink bottle.
We are especially pleased to expand our medical focus to an area of immediate need in the community..providing a safe wellness haven for routine vaccinations for those who might wish to avoid other medical clinics at this time. Our primary focus during the lockdown period has been on influenza vaccinations, but we are now providing an extensive range of other vaccinations too. All government vaccinations will be bulk-billed, including catch up vaccines for at-risk patients.
We are also able to provide a mobile vaccination service for those who are unable or unwilling to leave their home at this time. As long as you are not in quarantine or compulsory isolation, you can request a home visit flu shot. This is a private service and will be billed accordingly. Compulsory temperature checks will be necessary prior to all vaccinations, whether in clinic or home based.
To celebrate our 10th Birthday, in a socially distanced sense, we are offering an extra $250 credit on every new or renewed VIP membership package for the 20/21 financial year. This is an unprecedented offer to reward our most loyal patients who have been the backbone of our success over the last 10+years. Without their support, this business would not have been possible.
For our regular acne patients, access to LED services will continue throughout this period, sterilised after each use, of course. Review consultations can now take place via teleconferencing or preferably still in clinic face to face. Scripts and skincare products can be ordered via email or phone, and will be posted out.
Dr Teska is also an approved Medicare provider of Mental Health Care Plans, and can provide teleconsultations for anyone in need during this crisis. Our area of special interest extends to Adolescent Mental Health and we would love to offer support to any youth going through difficulties at this time.
Our hours of operation have changed for the rest of the financial year. Please phone ahead if unsure.
We are open Tuesday to Thursday, and Saturday appointments are now available on the first Saturday of each month. From August, we will be available on the Friday preceding the first Saturday.
Skin Temple continues to provide a comprehensive medical service, with 7 different lasers, LED, Ultherapy and a complete range of injectables, including leg vein sclerotherapy.
On the other hand, our hammam has never looked more inviting, or been cleaner, and we have devised some affordable packages that we’re sure will be appreciated by those looking for a little escapism this winter. Perfect for luxury self isolation! Please take a look at our social media posts and remember to follow our pages for instant updates.
“Crises don’t change our character, they just reveal it.”
Still you….only stronger! xx
