(UPDATED 3/16/2020)

Dear Valued Patients,

We are focused on your health, safety and concerns regarding the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). As the coronavirus news continues to develop rapidly, we want to do all we can to maintain the health of our patients and staff. At Cary Orthopaedics and Spine Specialists, we assure you that we are taking all essential precautions and have protocols in place to help minimize any risk of infection, inside and outside of our offices.

We will be implementing increased measures to protect our patients and our staff. Please call 919-573-4825 to reschedule your appointment if you are suffering from any of the following symptoms: fever, cough, fatigue, or shortness of breath. We respectfully ask that you follow this protocol if any member of your household shows similar symptoms.

Starting today, we will be turning away any patient who arrives in our office displaying any of the symptoms listed above. Anyone who has been traveling out of the country or within an infected area in the United States within the last 14 days, will not be able to schedule an appointment.

If you have an appointment and don’t have the symptoms listed above, please limit the number of visitors you bring to your appointments to one. Only children over the age of 11 will be allowed in offices to avoid the spread of germs.

Cary Orthopaedics and Spine Specialists is actively encouraging sick employees to stay home to avoid potential spreading. We are emphasizing hand hygiene and routine environmental cleaning.

Additionally, please be aware that we are not able to accept cash payments at this time. We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express.

What can you do to stay healthy?

The simplest and most effective ways to keep yourself and family safe include:

  • Practicing good hand hygiene. Wash with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoiding close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoiding touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed/unsanitized hands.

Who do you contact if you have symptoms?

Before visiting a doctor’s office, urgent care, hospital or emergency room:

Additional information

The best site to gain updated information is the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). They are consistently updating information on symptoms, locations, how it spreads, prevention and treatment.

We appreciate your business and are here to assist you through this situation. We will continue to update information and resources as they develop.

Sincerely,
The Cary Orthopaedics and Spine Specialists Team
