Scheduling Telemedicine Appointments in Spring & Houston, TX
KSF Orthopaedic Center Provides Virtual Face-to-Face Consults
The coronavirus pandemic has changed the medical field and how KSF Orthopaedic Center takes care of our patients. Like many other practices across the nation and globe, we now provide virtual, face-to-face consults with our patients via video conferences. All you need is a cellphone, iPad, tablet, or PC with a camera to participate. You’ll also need to schedule a telemedicine appointment with one of our Spring and Houston, TX doctors. Please note that video quality is often much better on a mobile device. If you can connect with us via mobile means, we urge you to do so versus a desktop application. We thank you in advance for your patience during this time, as telemedicine is still new to us as well. You may download and complete your patient consent form prior to your consult.
How COVID-19 Has Changed Our Approach to Patient Care
Due to current coronavirus (COVID-19) concerns, KSF Orthopaedic Center has taken steps to prepare our facilities. We remain open for orthopaedic emergencies, including all fracture care. We’re committed to the safety of both our staff and patients. We ask that patients visiting us follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidelines, including wearing a cloth face covering, washing hands with soap and water often, and practicing social distancing while in our facilities. If you’re experiencing flu-like symptoms on the day of your appointment, please reschedule. We also encourage at-risk patients with non-urgent needs to reschedule or take advantage of our telemedicine appointments. Telemedicine appointments are available for new and established patients. Are you unsure if you need to see one of our doctors in person? Please contact us, and we’d be happy to help you determine if a telemedicine visit would be appropriate for you.
