How do I know if I need orthopedic treatment?
The best way to know whether you need our services is to consult your primary physician to evaluate your condition. Orthopedic specialists can help in treating pain, injuries, and other conditions of the joints, spine, and muscular system. There is a broad range of orthopedic treatments available, but not all injuries will require treatment from a specialist. If you are experiencing pain or discomfort, don’t wait too long to consult a doctor, as some conditions are easier to treat in earlier stages.
I have questions about my bill. Who should I speak to about financial concerns?
Please contact our office services at (415) 492-1600 if you have any questions. Usually, a quick phone call can help clear up any inconsistencies in your statement.
Will I be able to speak to my doctor before surgery?
Of course! You will have a chance to discuss any questions or concerns you have during your presurgical consultation, which will take place a few days before your surgery. Your doctor will explain your procedure in detail during this appointment. You will also receive instructions for self-care before and after your procedure.
What do I do if I have problems after my surgery?
First, check your post-operative instructions for guidance. If you still need assistance, contact our office.
What is your cancellation policy?
If you need to cancel your appointment, we ask that you give at least 24 hours’ notice. If you do not give at least 24 hours’ notice, you may be charged for the appointment. We understand that emergency situations come up, and we will do our best to reschedule your appointment if necessary.
Does California Orthopedics & Spine accept workers’ compensation cases?
Yes, we accept cases that are referred by a workers’ compensation physician or clinic. You must notify the office immediately if your workers’ compensation adjuster changes. We accept patients on a case-by-case basis.
