Dr. Heather Shoup has been recommended as a Covid-safe and Covid-cautious acupuncturist and provider of acupuncture services in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. While the person who recommended Dr. Shoup had not been to her themselves, they said they had heard good things about her. So we reviewed Dr. Shoup’s site.
On the Balanced Acupuncture website Dr. Shoup has a ‘Corona Virus Protocols’ page which says:
MASKS CONTINUE TO BE REQUIRED AT THIS TIME FOR ALL PATIENTS
As the pandemic continues, I want to make you all aware of where I stand with procedures and protocols. First I want everyone to know that myself, as well as everyone else in the office, have been fully vaccinated for some time now. I know everyone has individual thoughts on vaccination, and have taken this into consideration when reviewing protocols. I still follow CDC guidance for health care facilities. I am STILL REQUIRING FACEMASKS FOR ALL PATIENTS. They should be worn snug on the face and MUST cover your nose and mouth for the entire treatment. If you do not have a mask with you, they are inside the office door. PLEASE put one on BEFORE proceeding down the hall.
Colds/coughs/congestion sick protocols: I ask ANY patient that is currently experiencing any cough, congestion, cold, flu, vomiting, or diarrhea or have within 48 hours of your appointment reschedule. Covid symptoms are vast and changing as the variants emerge. I have to ensure everyone feels safe. I will continue to lift the cancellation charges for last minute cancellations due to illness or concern for illness.
We then reached out to Dr. Shoup and asked her if she is still following the above protocol, and she confirmed that she is.
