Aloha Sophia Wellness New Office Hours & Structure
Due to the recent developments with COVID-19, we have suspended our regular schedule until further notice and will be on an appointment-by-appointment basis on Saturdays. We are regularly monitoring county and state guidelines for the reopening of regular office hours. If you need care, please don’t hesitate to give us a call. Leave us a message at 808-823-0418 and Dr. Sophia will discuss options available to you on a case-by-case basis.
As healthcare providers in Hawaii, chiropractic clinics are defined as part of the “Essential Critical Infrastructure Workforce during the Covid-19 Response.” For that reason, our clinic will remain open and we are dedicated to continuing to focus on supporting you with chiropractic care. In addition, by staying open during this time and caring for those in our community without COVID-19, it has the added benefit of reducing visits to busy medical facilities.
We want you to know that we have been closely monitoring the constant updates and requirements for healthcare facilities from the CDC and Hawaii State Department of Health.
Before scheduling an appointment and before you come into the office, Dr. Rodrigues will discuss and ask that you follow a “Self-Screening Practice” to make sure that when you enter the office, you are free from symptoms. Once discussing your need for care with Dr. Rodrigues and scheduling an appointment, you will be emailed a list of important safety procedures to follow. It will detail specific steps that we will be taking to ensure our office is a safe place to be while you continue to receive the care you need. While in the office, you will be asked to follow specific “Appointment Safety Practices” to minimize patient contact and maintain a safe distance.
When you come into the office for care, know that we are following EPA guidelines and instituting national and state guidelines, taking every step possible to keep you and your loved ones healthy and safe during this pandemic. We have instituted cleaning and disinfecting procedures, including extensive cleaning after each patient, staggering of appointments by seeing only one person or family unit at a time, requiring all to wear a mask (for your protection as well as ours) and rearranging our reception area to ensure a safe and clean environment for all.
If you have any questions or concerns or want to schedule an appointment, feel free to call us at 808-823-0418 or email us at info@AlohaSophia.com , saying you would like to have Dr. Rodrigues call you back. We check messages daily and Dr. Rodrigues will get back to you as soon as possible.
For those that need to stay home and self-quarantine right now, these are unprecedented times and we completely understand and absolutely respect your decision. We want you to know that we will be ready to serve you again when you are ready, and this crisis abates.
I want to relay to each of you, in as deeply a personal way as I can, the heartfelt appreciation I feel for each and every one of you. You make our practice what it is. While much remains uncertain right now, one thing is for sure: this crisis will pass. And, the Aloha Sophia Wellness Team will continue to serve you, our loyal and loved patients, with excellence, as we strive to make your world–this world–a better place.
Yours in health and wellness,
Dr. Sophia Renée Rodrigues, Chiropractor & Eddie Joe,
The Aloha Sophia Wellness Team
