Pacific Rim Orthopaedic Surgeons

Dear Patients – we are currently operating at our regular business hours. Please refer to the Contact & Location tab for our regular hours of operation.

We have in-office appointments available, as well as telemedicine visits (you will need a smartphone or other video-capable device). Call us to learn more or to schedule! 

We are now scheduling all surgeries! Don’t wait to schedule your surgery. Call now to get on the books, before we get into our busy fall season (or risk another elective surgery ban due to COVID-19 escalation).

The safety and well-being of our patients and community members are our highest priority. PROS continues to actively monitor the spread of the COVID-19 in our communities. To that end, we are disinfecting and cleaning our clinic surfaces multiple times per day; and performing a deep surface area clean each night. 

To align with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), along with local and regional departments of health recommendations, we ask that patients call PROS before arriving for all appointments if they meet any of the following criteria:

  1. Do you or have you had symptoms of fever, cough or shortness of breath, or any other cold or flu-like symptoms within the last 14 days?
  2. Does anyone or has anyone you live with had symptoms of fever, cough or shortness of breath, or any other cold or flu-like symptoms within the last 14 days?
  3. Are you currently quarantined to monitor these symptoms in yourself?
  4. Do you live with someone who is currently quarantined?
  5. Have you been tested, or has anyone you live with been tested for COVID-19, and are currently awaiting testing results?
  6.  Have you tested positive, or has anyone you live with tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 14 days
  7. Have you, or anyone you live with, been in potential contact with a person known to have COVID-19
  8. Have you, or anyone you live with, traveled within the last 14 days (including travel within the United States)?
  9. Have you, or anyone in your household, been involved in, or exposed to large groups or gatherings (more than 5 people) where you and/or others did not wear face coverings (including family gatherings, social gatherings, protests)?

If any of the above criteria apply to you (i.e. you answered “YES” to any of the above questions) PLEASE DO NOT COME TO THE CLINIC. Please call to discuss rescheduling your appointment or to determine if we can perform your visit via telehealth (phone or Doxy.me).

If none of the above criteria apply to you (i.e. you answered “NO” to ALL of the above criteria), please come in! Please wear a mask to your visit as our office space is small and it is difficult to socially distance. Please DO NOT bring guests to your appointment, other than a necessary caregiver.
