Pacific Rim Orthopaedic Surgeons

Dear Patients – update effective Monday, May 18th:

We are open regular business hours. Please refer to the Contact tab for our business hours.

We have in-office appointments available, as well as telemedicine visits (you will need a smartphone or other video-capable device).

We are now scheduling elective surgeries! If your surgery was previously cancelled, we will call you to reschedule. Please keep in mind that we will need to resubmit your new surgery date through your insurance plan. Please be patient with this process and with us, as we have dozens of surgeries to reschedule.

The safety and well-being of our patients and community members are our highest priority. PROS continues to actively monitor the spread of the novel coronavirus (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?
  1. Have you, or anyone you live with, been in potential contact with a person known to have COVID-19?
  1. Have you, or anyone you live with, traveled within the last 14 days (including travel within the United States)?

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

If none of the above criteria apply to you (i.e. you answered “NO” to ALL of the above criteria), please come in! As our clinic spaces are small, we ask that you wear a mask if you are able. Please DO NOT bring guests to your appointment, other than a necessary caregiver. We can do telemedicine visits for many patient visits. Call us to learn more!
