Opening May 25!

We are excited to announce that we will be opening on a limited basis on May 25, 2020. Not all of Riverside therapists will be returning at the same time so please follow up with us next week to see when your therapist is returning. Consider this a “soft reopening” as we sort through all the new procedures and policies.

Please see our Return to Practice Plan and what you need to know. With our new procedures and policies means we will have longer time slots between each patient and will require some of your appointments to be moved or rescheduled. Thank you for your understanding and flexibility in this transition period.

Online booking will not be open until June 1st.

We’re looking forward to seeing you soon!

Getting Closer to Reopen

The clinic is getting closer to reopening but presently still does not have a date. When we get the final word from our college there will be processes and procedures that we will have to abide by. These new changes will take time to implement into our practices. We appreciate your patience as we go through this process to get the clinic ready. Some therapists will return as soon as we get the go ahead from our college and some will take a little longer to prepare. Please keep checking back here for updated information. Stay safe and stay healthy! We miss all of you.
