Sage Returns to In-Person Appointments
We’re back, baby! Sage is returning to in-person appointments. We believe that our magic comes through the in-person experience. We connect people to each other and to their best clinical care through our multidisciplinary expertise. Though we have done an outstanding job continuing that connection to care through virtual means since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, we ultimately believe that resuming in-clinic operations will allow us to invest an even deeper connection to care and our shared community.
Starting February 28, all appointments for individual therapy, medication management, and other services will be scheduled for in-person. Please plan to arrive 20 minutes early so we may update your paperwork if necessary. There will be no changes in our current IOP and group telehealth options.
We know that our patients have unique scenarios and concerns for returning to in-person care. Individuals who qualify for continued telehealth appointments must meet one of the following criteria:
- If you live outside the Albuquerque Metro 505 area.
- If you have chronic medical conditions that make leaving your home or obtaining transportation a challenge.
- If you and/or someone in your household have had a COVID-19 exposure or have tested positive in the last five days.
- If it’s clinically necessary for you to remain online for telehealth. This is to be determined by your provider and they will notify the Office Manager.
If you have questions about these changes, you can contact your provider, call the Sage clinic mainline, or email email@example.com and we will be happy to assist you!
Masks Still Required
On February 17, Governor Grisham announced that the statewide public mask mandate for many indoor settings has been lifted. This revision to the public health order continues the requirement that masks be worn in medical facilities. Sage will continue with our current masking policies, which require that masks be worn in our clinic at all times regardless of vaccination status.
No-Show Fees Return
To curb no-shows and cut down waitlist times, we are reinstating our no-show fee and cancellation policy. If you need to reschedule or cancel an appointment, you must notify us at least 24-hours in advance. If you miss an appointment, you will be charged a no-show fee of $50.
