19.04.2020 Corona Virus Update:

Dear Patients,

The practice will reopen on the 4th of May! The practice will continue to have reduced opening hours because of the staggered school openings. Practice Hours: Monday through Friday from 17:00 until 21:00 and Saturdays from 09:00 until 16:00. Please call for an appointment. Because of the limited space, I can only allow one person at a time to be in the practice For hygenic reasons, I would ask that you bring a mask or protective covering for your mouth and nose for your appointment. Thank you for your understanding. I look forward to seeing you again!

Corona Virus Update

Dear Patients!

Because of the rapid spread of the Corona Virus infection in Stuttgart I have to deal with this situation responsibly.
I am unable to keep a minimum distance of 1.5 meters between two people as currently recommended by the Robert Koch Institute and I also cannot acquire enough face masks or disinfectant, which are necessary at this time for us all to keep healthy.
Therefore I am temporarily closing the practice until April 20th.
This closure may be extended.
This is a difficult decision for me, but at the moment there are no other possibilities.
Thank you for your understanding. Stay healthy and safe!

Robert Lightner, HP, DC

Thank you for your understanding.
