At St. Clair Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine we are committed to keeping our patients and employees safe, while still providing care during this time of crisis. Virtual and in-office appointments are available; please see the guidelines for in-person office visits below.
Our offices are now open 5 days/week.
Can I make an in-Person appointment in the office?
Yes. We are currently seeing a somewhat limited number of appointments in the office for in-person visits. Our offices are currently open 5 days per week at both offices (St.Clair Shores and Macomb Twp). Appointments for injections are also available. We will maintain social distancing guidelines and will use personal protective equipment (PPE) for both staff and patients.
When you come to our office.
You will be asked to wait in the car until the exam room is ready for your visit. This allows for social distancing and through cleaning. You will be screened at the door. Every patient / staff is monitored via screening questions and temperature. If you have a fever, cough, shortness of breath or have had exposure to a COVID-19 patient or travel history, you cannot be seen for a in person visit.
Please note than only the patient will be allowed in the exam room due to the COVID-19 restrictions on person-to-person contact as recommended by the CDC. If you would like to be seen in the office please bring and be prepared to use a mask.
Can I make a virtual appointment?
All patients can make a virtual appointment with their orthopedic surgeon. We are evaluating both new and established patients via a virtual platform. You may call and schedule an appointment, or request one on our website.
What is a virtual appointment?
The patient will be given an appointment time when the physician will call them. This is an audio-visual visit (doxy.me platform). You will be able to talk to and see the doctor. You don’t need to download any software/apps on your computer or phone. You just need the ability to receive a text or email and then click on the link provided. This will connect you directly with your Dr. for a video appointment.
The physician will obtain a history, answer any questions, call in prescriptions if needed and make future care recommendations. If you are a new patient to the practice, you may be asked to come to the office to get an X-ray done prior to your virtual visit. The physician will go over your x-ray findings and may be able to show you your x-rays on the screen. If you have had a MRI done, please inform the staff (when scheduling the appointment). Please inform us when and where the MRI was done. If you have a MRI disc that you want reviewed – you may need to drop off the MRI to the office so that it may be uploaded into the computer system. If we can remotely access your MRI from the facility where it was performed – we will attempt to do so in order to minimize person-to-person contact.
