Covid-19 Practice Update

FoRM continues to operate within a limited to capacity:

 

We are unable to test for Covid-19. Currently, most testing is being performed via the state. Please visit https://govstatus.egov.com/OR-OHA-COVID-19 for updates.

At this time, we are continuing to provide care to patients with urgent and more essential needs, such as pain management. This is a decision between you and your provider. Please call the clinic at 503 232 5653 to reach your provider.

We are supporting the remainder of our clients/patients via Telemedicine. Patients are encouraged to schedule / reschedule any office visits (those not requiring hands-on treatment or procedures) to a telemedicine visit, accessible via all “smart” devices. Such appointments are billable to insurance or subject to same out of pocket rates as an office visit.

For those coming into the clinic, we are currently not scheduling more than 2 patients at the same appointment time, in an effort to reduce the number of people in our waiting room at once. 

Please do not bring any other friends, family members, or children to your office visit. 

We are canceling or rescheduling any patients who exhibit symptoms of COVID-19 or the flu. 

Our goal in doing this is to facilitate social distancing and other preventive statewide recommendations for at least the next 2 weeks.

For any in-office appointments, please call to reschedule if you are experiencing ANY of the following symptoms: 

  • Temperature of 99.6F or greater
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Persistent pain or pressure in your chest
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Traveled out of the country
  • Contact with a confirmed COVID-19 patient

Patients with the following conditions are at an increased risk of infection and we recommend that you avoid coming in to the office:

  • Heart Disease
  • Lung Disease
  • Diabetic
  • Immunocompromised
  • Over the age of 65

A NOTE ABOUT OUR SERVICES

As healthcare providers, we realize that aside from coronavirus, patients continue to have other medical conditions and injuries that need treatment.  We aim to stay open and available to service these needs, while finding a balance with avoiding unnecessary contact to prevent the further spread of this novel virus. We will provide telemedicine support throughout this process, even if the physical clinic is forced to close.

 Additionally, it is important to note that none of the services we provide at Elixia can directly prevent, treat or cure coronavirus.  We do have a number of therapies that may help stimulate the immune system, improve sleep, support lung health, other preventive measures for otherwise healthy patients.  We encourage you to maximize healthy and preventive habits at home, and only visit us if needing additional support. 

If you have questions regarding services or scheduling, please call 503 232 5653; our staff is here to help.  Alternately, if you have any concerns or further questions about COVID-19, please visit the Oregon Health Authority website at https://govstatus.egov.com/OR-OHA-COVID-19

The naturopathic physicians at FoRM Health PDX in Portland, Oregon, believe that everyone wants to look, move, and feel their best.

They use regenerative, functional medicine procedures to address fundamental health issues that block wellness so their patients can thrive in all stages of life.

FoRM Health (Functional and Regenerative Medicine) was born when Ryan Minarik, ND, LAc, and Kai Herman, ND, realized that they shared a fascination with the treatments supporting regeneration of cells and tissue that patients could undergo to regain optimal form and function. Dr. Minarik focused on sports injuries and chronic pain, while Dr. Herman specialized in aesthetic and anti-aging treatments.

Today, Dr. Minarik focuses on orthopedics and Dr. Herman focuses on aesthetic procedures, but both share a belief in harnessing the body’s innate ability to heal through aspects such as nutrition, hormones, exercise, bodywork, and lifestyle adjustments.

The team at FoRM uses science-based therapies but also stays at the forefront of emerging regenerative therapies such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) that help encourage the body to age well from the inside out.

FoRM currently operates out of Elixia Wellness Group, which provides reception and billing services, in the heart of Sellwood conveniently located at the corner of SE 13th Avenue and Tacoma Street. Within Elixia, they have dedicated space including an IV suite, injection therapy room with ultrasound for imaging, acupuncture treatment rooms, and an aesthetic room with an Elos laser.

Schedule a visit online or by phone today to learn how the holistic, functional approach at FoRM Health PDX can help you feel and look your best at any age.
