Telemedicine and Telehealth are relatively new to Atlanta, Georgia, particularly in Orthopedics. Ours was the first orthopedic surgery practice to offer VIP concierge services to all patients regardless of cost, insurance reimbursement or ability to pay. In the wake of social distancing to provide safer care for our patients and the metro Atlanta community, we are pioneering options for patients to get the best orthopedic care, via promoting the best Telehealth practices and access to the best orthopedic surgeons. The Health Resources Services Administration defines telehealth as the use of electronic information and telecommunications technologies to support long-distance clinical health care, patient and professional health-related education, public health and health administration. Technologies include videoconferencing, the internet, store-and-forward imaging, streaming media, and terrestrial and wireless communications. It is broader in scope than Telemedicine, which is usually limited to just clinical practice.
We ask all patients and their guests who have a fever, cough, shortness of breath, have been exposed to a person with the coronavirus, the flu or any other communicable disease, or have traveled to an area impacted by the coronavirus to reschedule their appointments or surgeries for at least 14 days.
Please understand that if you arrive for your appointment and are requested to reschedule, this is being done in the best interest of our staff, patients and the public.
We have posted signs in our offices and are following CDC recommendations for screening and management of patients. Staff members are asking all patients screening questions when they schedule and check in for their appointments. If you are at all concerned that you may have been exposed to or are infected with the coronavirus or any infectious disease, your best course of action is to seek care at your local hospital’s emergency department.
We also ask that patients do not bring visitors with them to their appointments unless the patient is a minor or requires assistance. No more than one visitor is to accompany each patient.
Our Providers will continue to closely monitor the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak via the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) and the World Health Organization (WHO). The protocols are evolving, and we are working to mitigate any impact on our patients, community, staff, and providers.
