Due to the recent events surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) we are taking precautions to keep our office a safe environment.  We have implemented the following screening criteria immediately to protect the safety of all patients and staff.

Please do not enter the building if you or any family members have experienced the following symptoms in the past two weeks:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Upper respiratory infection, congestion, wheezing, runny nose
  • Traveled to high risk areas or outside of the country

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms please do not enter the office and call to reschedule your appointment. 

We will be screening and taking temperatures when you enter the building.  

Changes to our waiting room & visitor policy

We are asking that if you can drive yourself to the office, please do not bring visitors with you.

We understand this may be an inconvenience and we apologize, but we must prioritize the well-being of other patients.

We also respectfully ask that only one adult accompany each child and other family members, such as siblings, stay at home if they are not scheduled for an appointment.

It is always our top priority to ensure the cleanliness and sanitation of our office in order to protect the health and safety of our patients; therefore, we have removed magazines and coffee from the waiting room to minimize the spread of germs.  

Same day walk in appointments available

With COVID-19 (coronavirus) overwhelming our local urgent care centers and emergency departments, Orthopedic Associates is now offering same day walk in appointments for orthopedic and spine needs such as fractures, sprains, strains and injured joints, back or neck. You are welcome to call ahead or just come on in (no appointments).

If you prefer to wait in your car until your exam, just let us know upon check in. At that time, you may return to your car and we will call you when the doctor is ready to see you.

Thank you for understanding our concern for our families and the community. If you have questions, feel free to call our office at (972) 420-1776.
