COVID-19 Coronavirus Patient Self-Assessment Tool
If you have symptoms of respiratory illness (e.g., fever, cough and/or shortness of breath, sore throat, runny nose, loss of taste or smell), answer the following questions:
1. Have you recently traveled outside the United States to countries that have been affected by Covid-19; or domestically within the US by commercial airline, bus, or train?
2. Have you been in close contact with anyone known or suspected to have the COVID-19 coronavirus illness? Close contact is defined as within 6 feet for 3 minutes or more.
If you answered yes to one or both of these questions and have respiratory symptoms:
Stay home and call your primary care physician to discuss next steps.
If you believe your symptoms are life threatening, go to the nearest hospital emergency department. We recommended that you call the emergency department immediately so the staff can provide you with arrival instructions.
If you do not have respiratory illness symptoms, please refer to the CDC’s guidance to help with risk assessment and management of people with potential exposures to COVID-19.
Dr. Ziyang Zhou, L.Ac., MD (China), is a licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist, serving Austin, Texas and the surrounding areas through Pine Mountain Chinese Acupuncture and Herb Clinic. We use Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to treat each unique patient as a whole, with meticulous individual diagnosis, to maximize the healing process. Our facility is a quiet place of serenity where your care is our first concern. We welcome new patients and patient referrals. We look forward to getting to know you.
Our clinic participates in most major insurance programs and networks. However, insurance plans vary in coverage so acupuncture is not a guaranteed benefit, even when Dr. Ziyang Zhou is an in-network provider. Please call your insurance company to verify or our office can verify it for you. We are proud to now be covered by Veterans Affairs Patient Centered Community Care (VAPC3). See our "Before Your Visit" page in Patient Information for more information. Currently Medicare covers acupuncture for lower-back pain only when it is performed by medical doctors or in their offices. Licensed acupuncturists are not covered because we’re not in-network with Medicare. Without insurance coverage, we offer a discounted rate of $120 for the first treatment and $100 for each additional treatment. Or we offer a prepaid package of 5 treatments for $90 each for a total of $450 ($70 in savings).
