During this exceptionally difficult time we have been monitoring closely what the public health officials have been sharing, and keeping that in mind, we are making important changes to the services we are offering at Polo Health.
While the pharmacy will remain open, with regular hours to help serve your prescription refill needs, all non-essential visits have now been moved to phone consults and telemedicine. Our front desk staff will still be available to help support you with supplement refills, and booking those new appointments for you. If you do wish to pick up supplements, we kindly ask that you call ahead so we can get them ready for your pickup. If you are on the Pound-a-Day program, we encourage you to come pick up your weekly B-12 shots so you can take them home and self-administer them, and Dr. Polo and Dr. Kassam will follow up weekly by phone during the duration of your program.
As the situation is changing rapidly, we want to make sure all of our patients are taken care of both physically and mentally. We will reassess and re-evaluate the situation, but as of right now, we are closed until April 1st. If that date needs to be changed, we will update you all. Call in to book phone consults, refill your prescriptions, and pick-up any supplements you may need.
We recognize this is a trying and stressful time, and we urge to focus on your mental well being through the chaos. Our team will still be actively checking social media, and we are here to chat if you need anything.
Dr. Allana Polo
