Let me start by saying thank you for your patience while we shelter-in-place yet excitedly await our “re-opening”.
While the country’s focus has turned to other pressing things, we want you to know that the Deschamps-Braly Clinic team is currently answering calls and working remotely so we can assist you with essential medical care. We continue to follow-up in person with patients who are post-operative and need ongoing care.
Based on our experience with patients over all these years, we know the surgery decision can be a long one and we stand ready to help you in that process. We now can leverage ZOOM and Skype to provide consultations, which will give you great information to further your decision and planning process. Depending on the type of surgery you are seeking, some of the essential parts of an in-person consultation that would customarily occur won’t be able to happen but we are finding that the ones we are conducting have been great for us, and very helpful for the patients! Please contact the office so we may schedule your virtual consultation*; our team will be able to share exactly what to expect (and not expect) on your virtual consultation.
If you currently have a surgery scheduled, we understand how hard this waiting period is for you. We have been asked, for the time being, to postpone all surgery by the Department of Public Health and St. Francis Memorial Hospital. We do not know the exact date that we will be allowed to resume elective surgery again. Rather than continue to have to reschedule your surgery date, we would like to wait for the lift order for the shelter and then select a new date, so once it is set, you can count on it. Please know that when we re-open, we will be adding as much surgical time as we can, and the team will be working expeditiously to make your date happen!
Seeing patients is what gives us joy. We can’t wait to see you – virtually for now, and in-person soon. If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to contact the office.
* Normal consultation fees for applicable surgeries apply and are collected at time of booking
