At Colorado Orthopaedics, patient safety and well-being has always been our top priority. Our practice is open and will continue to see patients for their health care needs. You can always contact us by telephone at (303)662-8250 or through the secure patient portal link on our website: www.orthotree.com.
The safety of our patients and visitors remains our top priority, so we are:
- Putting CDC recommended protocols in place to ensure the highest level of prepared Coronavirus (COVID-19) prevention
- Ensuring we have necessary supplies and equipment, and appropriate staffing
Should I still come to my appointment?
Yes, we are open and seeing all previously scheduled patients. Your on-going healthcare needs remain our top priority. If changes in your appointment need to occur, we will contact you.
What about visitors at my appointments?
During this time, we ask that you limit accompanying visitors and attend your appointment alone. The only permitted exceptions will be a single caregiver for a minor patient, or for a patient with a disability or impairment warranting assistance. You will be unable to access our office using the main entrance to Sky Ridge Medical Center. Please be sure to use the Aspen Building entrance.
What are the symptoms?
Symptoms of COVID-19 may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. These symptoms can range from mild to severe and include:
- Shortness of breath
I have symptoms from this list; should I attend my upcoming appointment?
If you have a fever, new cough (within the last two weeks), shortness of breath, or flu-like symptoms, please call our office or send a message to your provider via the secure patient portal link on www.orthotree.com for guidance on your upcoming appointment.
What can I do to protect myself and others?
