We are thrilled to announce that, in accordance with the recently announced Illinois coronavirus response guidelines, the Chicago office of Olivera Health + Wellness is now open for appointments. At this time, our Elmhurst office will remain closed as we work to ensure that all safety precautions and protocols are in place.
We appreciate your patience as we work to ensure the safety of our patients and staff, and invite you to come for treatment in Chicago. We have missed our patients, and welcome you to make an appointment and come see us for the signature team approach and medical expertise you rely on for support as part of your healthy living journey. At your next appointment, you can expect a few important changes to our process in order to keep our patients and our staff safe.
In keeping with guidelines for safe operation as set forth by the CDC, OSHA, HIPAA, and IDPH, we will be operating as follows:
For Our Patients
• Health Screenings: They will be doing Covid-19 screenings (forehead temperature scan and providing masks) in the lobby of the building.. Please arrive 15 minutes before your appointment to allow time for the screening process.
• Masks: Patients MUST wear a mask at all times.
• Social Distancing: We will be limiting the number of patients in our reception area. NO GUESTS may be brought with patients.
• Appointment Spacing: Patients will be seen by appointment ONLY. Appointments are how we ensure safe spacing and limited exposure for everyone’s health and safety. Please plan to arrive at your designated appointment time.
For Our Staff

• Hand Hygiene: Our staff will continue to follow CDC guidelines for “Hand Hygiene in Healthcare Settings”
• Health Screenings: Staff health screenings will be completed before each shift. In the event a staff member displays viral signs and symptoms, CDC quarantine measures will be implemented immediately. Any staff who have been exposed to COVID-19 patients will follow CDC guidelines before returning to work.
