During these troubling and unprecedented times due to COVID-19, we need to make changes at Circle Of Care. Our primary focus is the care and safety of our patients and staff and helping to limit the spread of COVID 19. As you know, all elective weight loss surgery is now cancelled. Our clinic is now closed for face-to-face consultations, and we will endeavour to consult with new patients and follow up our current patients using tele-health using Zoom video conferencing. We are always contactable via our office phone or email.
