COVID-19 Protection

Our offices are OPEN to provide essential and critical care to our orthopaedic patients. To limit the spread and exposure to COVID-19, and based on guidance from the CDC and government agencies, we have put in place a limited schedule in our offices, to see patients with urgent problems.

To help ALL of our patients, we are set-up and available to offer our patients Telemedicine Visits.

Telemedicine allows our Physicians and medical providers to deliver convenient care through audio and video technology in real time to you.

A Telemedicine Visit is simple to arrange. Once scheduled, you will receive a text message and email that provides you a link to login securely and access your appointment via your smart Phone, smart device, laptop or desktop computer.

If you have any questions or concerns, or would like to schedule appointments for either an office visit or a Telemedicine Visit please call us at (305) 595-1317.
