COVID-19 Update: Office Changes

Dear Patients:
The health and safety of our patients and their families is paramount at Orthopedic Spine Care of Long Island.
In light of recent health concerns regarding the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) we are only seeing patients (new or established), in the office on an urgent/emergent basis. At this time, we will be open daily, Monday through Friday, on a limited basis, for those of you that absolutely need to be seen. Please call the office; one of our physicians will be available to discuss your urgent/emergent need to be seen.
Our Medical Assistants will be calling to reschedule routine follow-up appointments towards the end of April. Medication refills can be handled over the phone or at a future appointment. We are working to implement telehealth to allow patients access to care while keeping safety a priority.
Pain Management procedures have been postponed both in our office and at Huntington Hospital. Similarly, scheduled elective surgeries have been postponed at least until the end of April.
We are following the recommendations from the CDC, the Department of Health, the World Health Organization, government, and major health systems across the country.
We all have a responsibility to each other during this difficult time; together, we will get through this most challenging time. Our team is here for you.
Please stay healthy and remember social distancing.
