Personal Approach to Treating Patients
I believe each individual has unique issues that require an understanding of their special needs. I enlist a practical, comprehensive approach to the assessment and treatment (non-surgical and surgical) of a wide variety of musculoskeletal injuries to maintain and enhance physical performance, fitness, health and quality of life.

COVID-19 Limitations and Telemedicine Visits

Due to COVID-19, we’ve limited our operations to help maintain social distancing and limit the spread of the virus. We are seeing urgent issues and new injuries in the office and are also offering Telemedicine visits to all established patients. To schedule a Telemedicine visit, please call 619-299-8500, option 2.

 

Patient/Visitor Guideline Update

In an effort to minimize the risk of COVID transmission, provide a safer environment and promote social distancing, we are asking that patients avoid bringing visitors to their appointment. Additionally, we are respectfully asking that children not accompany any adult patient unless there is a medical necessity.

We are also requiring that any patient or visitor wear a face covering before entering our facility. We do not have enough masks on hand to give them out, so patients and visitors must bring their own. Thank you for understanding and for helping us keep you and your greater community healthy.

 

Scheduling Surgeries

The hospitals and surgery centers are in the process of planning for elective surgeries. This will most likely be a staged process, with the most urgent cases, such as cardiac procedures and organ transplants, going first. As soon as we are given the ok to schedule surgeries by the facilities, we will reach out to anyone who has had their surgery pending.

 

As always, we appreciate our patients and thank you for your patience during this difficult time. We wish you and your families good health, now and always.
