Keeping You Safe

We are all impacted by the effects of COVID-19. We want you to know we’re still here to help. Whether you are suffering from a sports injury, hip pain, back pain or any musculoskeletal condition, we’re here when you need us.

We’re Minimizing Risk With Changes

To protect the health of our patients, providers and staff, we made some changes:

  • Virtual visits: You can now be seen by an orthopedic specialist from the comfort of home. These virtual visits can be conducted through your phone or computer. Our patient care team will walk you through the process when you schedule your appointment. Learn more about virtual visits.
  • Masks: All patients, visitors and staff must wear a medical-grade mask inside our facilities. Each patient and visitor who arrives in a cloth mask will be offered a medical-grade mask upon arrival.
  • Visitor policy: Adult patients may have one additional person (age 16 or older) accompany them to an office visit; pediatric patients may have two additional people/caregivers (age 16 or older) accompany them to an office visit.
  • Arrival: Upon arrival to our office, patients and visitors will have their temperature taken and will be asked about symptoms, possible COVID exposure and travel history.
  • Sanitization: Our offices, exam rooms and waiting rooms are regularly cleaned and sanitized.

What to Expect at Your Visit

In Person: 

  • When you arrive, we will ask you questions about symptoms and possible exposure, including travel history and contact with anyone suspected or diagnosed with COVID-19.

  • When you connect with your provider, you will be evaluated and asked questions about your musculoskeletal condition.
  • You will be given a treatment plan and follow up instructions.
