What our patients should know about Coronavirus (Covid-19)

Telehealth Appointments

Patients may choose to be seen virtually using our Telehealth app. Click button for more information about Telehealth.

In-Person Appointments

Visitors: At this time, we are suggesting no more than one visitor come in with patients. Exception: If the patient is a minor child, 2 visitors are allowed to be with that child.

Masks: We are now requiring masks for all patients and staff due to the increase of Covid in West Michigan. We also offer Telehealth services for those that may be unable to wear a mask. For more information about Telehealth, click here.

Symptoms and Exposure: If you plan to come to our office for an in-person appointment, for the safety of our patients and staff, we ask that you call to reschedule if you are running a fever, have tested positive for COVID, have knowingly been exposed to COVID or are having symptoms of COVID. 

If you are sick or experiencing symptoms, we also offer Telehealth (virtual) appointments as an option. 

For safety reasons, if you are experiencing symptoms of Coronavirus, we ask that you do not come in. The safest thing for you to do is to CALL your primary care physician. They have the ability to ask you questions and direct your health care. They are fully prepared to further evaluate your health. Our physicians will also respond to any orthopaedic needs at Mercy Health or North Ottawa Community Hospital. 

 

Non-Essential Procedures Have Resumed

If you have questions regarding a procedure that was previously delayed or a pending procedure, please contact our office at 231-733-1326.

Safety First

For the safety of our patients and our staff, if you are experiencing a cold or flu-like symptoms, we ask that you defer any appointments until you are symptom-free.

Prevention

While the best way to prevent illness is to avoid exposure, the CDC recommends the following measures:

Many types of injuries and diseases have an effect on your bones immediately and over a length of time. We are committed to using non-surgical treatments whenever possible in order to maintain and manage the health of your bones and muscles. An important part of our care is to discuss treatment options with you and involve you fully in the medical decision-making process.

  • Avoid close contact (within 6 feet) with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Stay home if you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. If a tissue is not available, sneeze or cough into your elbow.

Like you, we are looking forward to returning to normal in the future. In the meantime, we hope and pray that our staff, patients, colleagues, and community stay safe during this pandemic.

Please call us at 231-733-1326 if you have any immediate orthopaedic needs.
