2. Follow policies the physician, medical and healthcare practice, or facility has in place regarding COVID-19 screening and testing and/or screening patients.

3.Before any encounter, patients must be screened for potential symptoms of COVID-19 or verified previously screened within the last 20 days.

 

The physicians and staff at Azalea Orthopedics are working hard to ensure the safety of our patients and our clinic. We are taking all necessary precautions to protect our community and are following CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) guidelines to protect against COVID-19.

We will work diligently and be proactive in the wake of this pandemic.

 

Please know your safety is our number one priority. We are actively screening both patients and our staff before entering the building. If you have traveled out of the country over the last 30 days, please self-quarantine. Our staff is following guidelines to clean and disinfect all areas throughout the day. If you are experiencing a fever upon arrival at any location or identified as a risk due to travel, you will be rescheduled for an appointment at a later date.

 

All locations and clinics are now open! 

 

If you have any questions or need to reschedule your appointment, please call 903-939-7500. Thank you for choosing Azalea and for supporting us during this time.
