Miller Orthopedic Specialists Now Offering Telehealth to Established Patients
Miller Orthopedic Specialists (www.millerortho.com) is now offering telehealth options for all established patients. With COVID-19 (coronavirus) cases on the rise, Miller Orthopedic Specialists is working hard to provide quality care while protecting their patients and staff. This would give the opportunity to better practice social distancing while still providing for patients’ orthopedic needs.
The telehealth option for established patients will allow the clinic staff and providers to interact with patients through internet capabilities, audio, and video via their tablets, phones, or computers. This will help the doctors do check-ups on patients without the patient feeling as though they are being put at risk by going out. With many older patients, this is very important as it allows the patient to be seen and have their questions answered, without having to leave their home.
During a time of uncertainty, it is important that patients can feel as though they can have their orthopedic needs addressed without endangering themselves or others. It will help limit patients having to cancel their appointments by providing better access to this healthcare.
While this option is currently only available for established patients, it will still greatly increase the safety of new patients and staff. Telehealth can provide a quick, accessible, and easy option for appointments, without violating social distancing.
Miller Orthopedic Specialists provides high quality patient-centered care. Their services range from sports medicine and total joint replacement, to spine and neck, hand and wrist, and foot and ankle surgery. Patients can call the Council Bluffs office at (712) 323-5333 or the Omaha office at (402) 991-9958 to schedule an appointment. More information can be found online at www.millerortho.com.
