To Our Valued Patients,
At Bucks County Orthopedic Specialists and Fitness Physical Therapy, ensuring the safety of our patients and staff while providing for the musculoskeletal needs of our community has always been our top priority. In light of the guidance from the CDC and the Governor’s office, we are taking the following steps to help stop the spread of COVID-19 while attending to the orthopedic and pain management needs of our patients:
- Reducing risk to patients and staff by ceasing routine clinical operations
- Continuing to provide urgent care to patients as needed in our offices and surgically
- Offering telemedicine to provide care remotely by our physicians and physician assistants for non-urgent issues
We are continuing to actively monitor the situation, working closely with our local officials and hospital to provide the very best care possible during these unprecedented times. We will update you with any relevant information and in the meantime, know that we are only a phone call away.
Your BCOS Team.
