Effective June 22, 2020, Phase 2  

 

Excel Physical Therapy’s Bozeman and Manhattan clinic COVID-19 Precautions for us all to stay safe and healthy. 

Thank you for your patience and accommodation.

 
  • All physical and massage therapy patients are asked to wear a face covering (mask, bandana, or scarf) when attending in-clinic appointments effective June 22.

This requirement does not apply to individuals who are unable to wear a mask or face covering due to a medical condition or to children under the age of 2. If you are hard of hearing, deaf and read lips, please notify us at check-in so we can accommodate you. We have transparent face masks arriving soon for our staff members to wear for you.

If you do not have a face covering upon arrival to the clinic, we will provide one for you. Please wear a face covering for your next in-clinic appointment so we can reserve supply for staff and patients in most need.

  • We are wearing face masks as staff members each day.
  • We are disinfecting patient, therapist and staff contact surfaces vigilantly on an hourly basis and after each patient interaction. We have a dedicated team member who is disinfecting the clinic and equipment constantly. 
  • We ask our screening questions when scheduling appointments on the phone and as soon as you arrive for your in-clinic appointment.
  • We are checking patient temperatures before each in-clinic appointment check in. 
  • We are checking staff temperatures before each shift.
  • We are not allowing any individuals to enter our clinic with ANY illness type symptoms or symptoms of COVID-19: fever, cough, difficulty breathing, flu-like symptoms like chills, fatigue.
  • We are having our patients and therapists wash their hands thoroughly before and after each visit. 
  • We have staggered patient appointments for social distancing practices. 
  • Visitors or guests are not allowed to attend in-clinic appointments with a patient (unless the patient is a minor, then only one parent/guardian please). 
  • If you have been diagnosed and recovered from COVID-19, please provide our front office team with your health provider’s clearance letter before attending your in-clinic appointment.
  • Please do not come to your in-clinic appointment until you have received health provider clearance if you have experienced virus exposure in the following ways (we are happy to do a video telehealth appointment in the meantime):
    • Diagnosed with COVID-19 that has not been classified as “recovered”
    • Close contact with an individual confirmed to have COVID-19 by lab testing or with a presumptive diagnosis of COVID-19.
    • Living in a house with anyone having symptoms consistent with COVID-19
Please let us know if you have any concerns or questions as we all proceed together through Governor Bullock’s phased reopening of Montana. Your feedback and suggestions are welcome and appreciated. Please direct inquiries and comments to info@excelptmt.com

Whether by in-clinic or telehealth appointment, phone or email, your Excel physical therapist is ready to help you. We realize there is a spectrum of how people feel during this moment. For those that feel comfortable to attend in-clinic appointments, we are seeing patients given certain restrictions (see below). And for those that who don’t feel comfortable to do that, we have telehealth appointments available for you from wherever you are. Excel Massage is open with the same precautions in place and you may schedule appointments in our Bozeman clinic here.

Our leadership has put consistent and specific safety precautions in place in our clinics for you and our staff. We will continue to implement safety precautions as best practices and guidelines emerge.

Whether you are in pain and want a non-medication, long-term solution, or an athlete who desires returning to your sport stronger and better equipped, Excel Physical Therapy’s highly trained practitioners and advanced therapy philosophies can help you.

This collaboration allows us to utilize evidence-based progressive treatments to better reunite you with pain-free comfort, functionality, and performance.

Recent Google Feedback:
“I have been working with AJ Sobrilsky for several months prehabbing before knee surgery. He and the entire support staff at Excel are kind, friendly and easy to work with, and I have been beyond pleased with my progress. AJ does a great job of balancing proper care with the right amount of pushing my limits so that pre-surgery I was back on (easy) hiking trails and road biking at normal spring levels.

Excel has been great at keeping everyone safe during this pandemic and I’ve never felt unsafe or worried about cross-contamination in their facility as I see staff constantly sanitizing all surfaces and equipment. Highly recommend AJ and the Excel team.”
