We are in this together! As our community gets back to work and businesses reopen, we want to reassure you that we take your health and safety seriously.
We are planning to continue virtual care via phone or telemed for those who are more comfortable staying home. We are happy with how successful this has been in order to continue care without interruption.
For those who necessitate an in-person visit, we are taking the following precautions. Our employees will be wearing masks during your care. Our waiting room and check-in and check-out desks are receiving wipe down in between patient interactions. As always, we are disinfecting each exam room after every patient. We are also running an ozone generating air purifier.
For patients coming in the office, we are requesting that you pre-register for your appointment. An office staff member will be contacting you prior. As a precaution to protect those with compromised immune systems, we ask that you wear a mask when visiting our office. If you don’t have a mask or feel you can’t wear one due to your own medical condition, we ask that you remain in your car and text the office 314-285-4747 to let us know you are here. We will inform you when it is time to enter the suite for your appointment and be directed to an exam room. Unfortunately, due to limited availability of masks, we will not be able to supply you with one upon arrival.
Furthermore, we are attempting to space our visits to room patients into exam rooms as quickly as possible to limit those in the waiting room. We also ask that you text upon arrival 314-285-4747 for all product pickups to better manage the amount of patients coming into the office. But rest assured, we will be disinfecting the waiting room more frequently.
At this time in order to limit the amount of people, we ask that only those with appointments enter the office unless you need assistance.
If you have any questions or concerns about your future visits, please do not hesitate to ask.

We’re Offering Virtual Visits to Keep you Safe and Well
Appointments are now offered virtually by phone or video to keep an eye on your health. If you have an upcoming appointment to review your medicine or check labs, it will now be done from the comfort of your own home. We will be in contact with you about your visit.
In-office visits are still offered for hormone pellets, prolozone, IV therapy and other services. We’re here for you in these uncertain times. If you have any questions, please let us know.

As a healthcare provider, I wanted to offer you some reassurance that we are monitoring the situation with the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak. My team and I have been working closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Missouri State Department of Health and Social Services to stay up to date with the latest information.
We are committed to doing everything we can to ensure the safety of our patients, team members and other visitors. Our providers will continue to see patients scheduled for office visits, IV treatments and sauna appointments. We have been using our Ozone generators to disinfect our entire office every night after hours in addition to continually disinfecting commonly touched areas and items. Our exam rooms are sanitized after each patient is seen.
We have also implemented protocols for ensuring anyone who suspects they have Coronavirus receives directive care via tele-med consultations. At the same time, we are taking extra precautions to separate our wellness patients from our acutely ill patients in the waiting rooms.
Again, our main concern during this time, are our patients, team members and community. We will continue to monitor the situation and notify you of any critical news or updates. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office.
Thank you for choosing Schoenwalder Health & Wellness.
Have a blessed day!
Michael Schoenwalder, DO
