Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

As the Physicians and Staff of Pontchartrain Orthopedics continues to follow CDC, State and local Coronavirus guidelines we continue to implement modified patient check-in and check-out procedures to adhere to these recommendations for the safety of our patients and staff and to mitigate the risk in our community.

In order to accomplish this, and in accordance with the Jefferson Parish mandate, all patients and visitors will be required to wear a mask/face covering at all times in all of our facilities. We will have limited seating in our waiting areas. To reduce social interaction, we are requesting patients to attend scheduled appointments solo or with only one family member/escort.

We ask that any patient who feels ill or has been in contact with someone experiencing symptoms of the Corona Virus to call the office prior to coming in for their appointment. We are working on alternative measures to continue to treat all our patients safely and effectively. We will continue to support our patients and the community while providing the best orthopedic care through these trying times.
