To Our Valued POSMC Patients,
Your health and safety is our utmost priority. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and in an effort to protect the health and safety of our patients and staff, Plano Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Center will be offering telemedicine services.
A “virtual” visit by telephone/video conference will allow you to access your physician and their team from the comfort and safety of your home or workplace. The following items may be seen via a telemedicine visit:
1. Follow up visit not pertaining to fracture care
2. Post-Operative appointment not requiring suture removal or x-rays
3. Follow up of diagnostic tests (CT, MRI, EMG, bone scan)
4. Follow up for injection
5. Follow up for Physical Therapy
6. Follow up after completing a regimen of medication or bracing/immobilization
7. Follow up for persistent pain
8. Pre-Operative appointments
Telemedicine visits are covered by most insurance companies, including Medicare, with the same copays as an office visit.
For a successful telemedicine experience, you should use a smart device or computer with camera/microphone capabilities. Please choose a quiet or private area to conduct your visit. A strong WiFi connection is helpful if cellular data is not available.
Please call Plano Orthopedics at 972-250-5700 to schedule a telemedicine visit for the above services or to inquire about changing an existing appointment to a telemedicine visit. Please note, not all services may be rendered via telemedicine. These services are being offered in addition to our regular in-office appointment.
Plano Orthopedics is dedicated to keeping our patients, staff and community healthy by giving you a viable option to receive care during these unprecedented times.
