A Message to Our Patients About COVID-19
Updated: Mar 19
Here at Coastal Orthopedic Associates we value the health and safety of our patients as well as our employees and medical staff and want you to know that we are taking every precaution given the growing number of cases of Coronavirus. We have put provisions in place for extra disinfecting of our offices, as well as patient screening for illness in order to protect and secure our environment.
In accordance with the CDC recommendations, if you have traveled outside of the US, have been in contact with someone with Coronavirus, or you yourself are experiencing symptoms, please kindly reschedule your upcoming appointment.
Should you present to the office with symptoms consistent with a flu-like illness such as, a fever, difficulty breathing, a cough or body aches, we will reschedule your appointment to a later date when you are well.
We also ask that you limit the number of individuals who you bring with you to your appointment to only those essential.
If needed, telephone and tele-health visits are available as appropriate for our patients, but we are open for business and here to help in anyway that we can!
Taking these precautions will help keep us all safe.
The Coastal Orthopedics Team
