Update for our patients about Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Dear Patients, 

In being mindful of the challenges brought on by the COVID 19 (Coronavirus), the health and well-being of VIDA’s patients and staff are our highest priorities. For this reason, we have temporarily switched to telemedicine via phone or Zoom (web-based video conferencing) for appointments with Dr. George. The exceptions to this are the 90-minute appointments which include a physical examination, and appointments with the medical assistants (blood draws, vitamin injections, etc.). Please come to these appointments alone. No children are permitted in the office for now. If you have an upcoming follow-up or Discovery appointment, we will be contacting you the day before to arrange a phone or Zoom call.  

We will continue to offer IV nutrient infusions in the office every Thursday. The week of March 30, we will also be offering IV Infusions on Wednesday, April 1. If the demand for infusions continues to rise due to the many immune-boosting benefits of vitamin infusions, we will likely expand our hours and include evening hours one night per week. Our office continues to be fully operational. We want to assure you that the highest level of service remains intact.

If you are in need of immune-boosting or other kinds of supplements, we encourage you to practice social distancing and order them online using the websites below. If the brand of supplements you need are not listed below, or if your need is extremely urgent, you may call our office to purchase for pickup, then call when you arrive so we can bring the order outside the building to you.

We hope that our proactivity will protect the health and safety of our patients and our team, as well as our larger community. We will continue to stay up to date on the CDC’s recommended preventative protocol, and are here for any assistance our patients may need during these unusual times.

Below is a list of official websites to help keep you informed:

Please take care of yourselves and each other,

Dr. George and the VIDA staff

Carolyn S. George, MD, the founder and owner of VIDA Integrative Medicine, is dedicated to providing personalized healthcare by identifying and addressing the root causes of illness through an approach called Functional and Integrative Medicine. Her functional medical approach helps her find answers so she can treat the root cause of disease instead of just treating the symptoms. She works closely with her patients to explore their health and identify areas of improvement with both traditional medicine as well as nutritional support to maximize their health and well being. Dr. George is board certified in Urgent Care Medicine (ABUCM) receiving her undergraduate and medical degrees from the University of Manitoba. She received her post-graduate training in Toronto at St. Mary’s Hospital and has practiced in both the United States and Canada. Dr. George has spent over 25 years working in the area of Emergency and Urgent care medicine where she observed the long-term consequences of poor lifestyle choices, oversight in management, inadequate patient education and difficult to treat conditions. She realized that her expertise and passion could make a real impact on her patient’s health before irreversible damage has occurred. Since then she has focused exclusively on applying a whole system approach of functional and integrative medicine to her practice. Dr. George believes strongly that patients make better choices about their health when they understand all the relevant factors that lead to their disease.
