IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT JBRMT & ASSOCIATES

 

Dear Clients,

It is with mixed emotions that I have decided to take a leave from my practice at 5 Broadway Avenue (Broadway Health & Vitality) effective September 1, 2019. For the last year and a half, in addition to practicing at the Broadway clinic, I have also been working at Sunnybrook Hospital Veterans Centre and Palliative Care unit. An opportunity has recently come up for me to take on more hours at the hospital while allowing for more time with my family as well.

This was a difficult decision. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with you, my staff, and my partners at Broadway Health and Vitality. Thanks to your treatment visits and referrals, I have grown my practice to approximately 1400 clients in just over four years. This is something I am grateful for and take a great deal of pride in.

In additional to their excellent technical skills, the associates I selected to work with me have a level of professionalism and client care that goes far beyond expectations which is why I would not hesitate to refer any of my clients to them in my absence.

Effective September 1st, 2019, Stephanie Maxwell, RMT has decided to take a break from treating to spend more time with her family.

Ayelet Grosbein, RMT will continue to practice out of the same location (5 Broadway Avenue) from Monday to Friday effective September 1, 2019 and will be offering daytime and occasional evening appointments. I am happy to assist you with booking your next appointment.

Jessica Noskewicz is currently negotiating a contract to take over the space on Saturdays, Sundays and possibly some evenings as well. Jessica has recently completed her College of Massage Therapists of Ontario board exams and will be ready to treat clients as soon as she obtains her registration documents. We hope that Jessica will be ready to take on some client referrals as early as August or September.

For more information, to book an appointment, or to reach out to Ayelet and/or Jessica, please feel free to give me call as I will still be working closely with them to assist through this transition.

 

BOOKING YOUR NEXT APPOINTMENT

I will continue to treat some JBRMT clients and new referrals with limited availability after September 1, 2019, requiring home visits due to mobility restrictions. The online booking system for Jennifer Bloch, RMT will be active until August 31, 2019 and then bookings will need to be made by phone, text or email at the same contact information as on my web site (which will remain active as well).

If you already booked a treatment in September with Ayelet, your treatment time will remain as is and you may be contacted by Ayelet to simply transfer your booking to her personal booking system.

  

YOUR TREATMENT FILE

PHIPA (Personal Health Information Protection Act, 2004) governs the use and treatment of your personal health information. A Custodian, according to PHIPA is “a person or organization listed in PHIPA that, as a result of his, her or its power or duties or work set out in PHIPA, has custody or control of personal health information” For now, I will remain the Custodian of your paper and/or electronic records for up to ten (10) years following your last visit and/or in accordance with the legislation protecting your health information and your files will be stored in my home practice and/or electronically as it pertains to your first treatment date. If you were treated by a Registered Massage Therapist other than myself at any point through JBRMT, that therapist will continue to have access to your records for up to ten (10) years since your last visit and/or in accordance with PHIPA legislation.

Should you wish to access your treatment records or at any point have them transferred to another regulated health practitioner or third party, please contact me at the number below. Please note that in some cases, an administration fee may apply. If you have any questions or concerns about your personal health record, please contact me at any time at the number below.

It has been my utmost pleasures working with you and I look forward to staying connected. I will be still working closely with Ayelet and Jessica, but more as a support role for appointment bookings, so I am sure our paths will cross again soon.

Wishing you the very best of health, and warmest regards, 

Jennifer Bloch, RMT
