Please know that there is nothing more important to us than the health of our patients and staff. The recent global outbreak of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) has now spread to New England, and we would like to advise everyone to observe all fundamental precautions to limit the contagion as much as possible.
The key first step is to remember the basics in your everyday activities:
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue and then throw the tissue away
- Stay home from work if you’re sick
- Avoid touching surfaces in public
- Try not to touch your face
- Avoid people who seem visibly sick
If you have any of the following symptoms, please call and reschedule your appointment; we thank you for your compliance in keeping everyone healthy and safe:
- Runny nose
- Shortness of breath
- Flu-like symptoms
Our office locations (Bloomfield, Enfield, Springfield Ma) remain open so we can continue to care for you. We proactively increased our sanitization protocol beyond our already high standards of safety.
If you, or anyone who accompanies you, arrive for your scheduled appointment and are visibly symptomatic, Advanced Orthopedics New England reserves the right to refuse treatment and reschedule you for a later date in order to protect other patients and our staff.
While some visits, such as post-op appointments, need to be done in person, we are now offering telemedicine appointments – a scheduled video chat with your physician. Contact us for more information – to schedule an appointment call 860.728.6740 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you in advance for your compliance. Please stay safe and be healthy through the upcoming weeks.
