Are you Still Open? Yes! Our offices will be keeping regular business hours.
We are following guidelines according to the CDC:
All of our offices and equipment are sterilized and sanitized in accordance with the CDC guidelines. We have increased cleaning and sanitizing and are paying extra attention to high touch area throughout our offices and lobbies.
Please Reschedule Your Appointment if:
- You feel sick, are running a fever or have traveled out of the country or within an area considered a “hot spot” within the last 14 days.
- You have symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough, or shortness of breath) or have been in close contact with someone who has symptoms
- You know you have been exposed to COVID-19 or have been in close contact with someone who has been exposed
- You are a high-risk patient* (*defined by CDC as older adults - 60 years or older - or if you have chronic medical conditions like heart disease, diabetes or lung disease)
Center for Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine is allowing non-clinic staff to work from home as our way to help limit exposure and slow the spread of the virus.
We are limiting travel and face-to-face meetings for all employees.
To keep everyone safe and protected, we are working to minimize the number of people coming into our clinics and operatories. We are asking for your help by only bringing one person with you to your appointment or surgical visit, if possible.
Staying in Touch:
We will be proactive to contact you if there is any change to your consultation appointment, surgery, follow-up or physical therapy.
