Northern Arizona Orthopaedics has re-opened their clinics after determining the safest and most practical means. This includes an evaluation process for each patient during the scheduling process that will determine if they are they are at low risk during an in-office visit. However, if patients fall into the “at risk” category, they will have the option of receive diagnosis and treatment options via Northern Arizona Orthopaedics telehealth program.
“At risk” patients will include:
- Patients over the age of 65
- Patients living in a long-term care facility or nursing home
- Patients with the following underlying medical conditions:
- Lung disease or asthma, heart conditions, severe obesity, diabetes and/or immunocompromised for other health conditions
Telehealth virtual online appointments will be offered to patients who fall into the “at risk” category.
