Please call 940.323.2020 to schedule.

We will be opening our office in phases.  Initially, we will be limiting the number of patients in our office and waiting room to ensure we are practicing social distancing.  We ask that you wait in your car until your provider is ready to see you, and we will come get you so you can go straight to the treatment room.  We will have limited schedules during Phase 1 of our reopening.

  • Providers and staff will wear face mask or shield during appointments and treatments
