Virtual Appointment Requests
During COVID-19 contact us to request a virtual appointment (telehealth/telemedicine).
At Olympia Orthopaedic Associates, your needs are our highest concern. We understand how important it is for you to be seen in a timely manner. For this reason, we make every effort to accommodate appointments immediately upon request.
In accordance with Governor Inslee’s “Healthy Washington” plan and guidance from the CDC: all patients will be required to wear a face mask for their appointment. If you arrive without a mask, your appointment will be rescheduled. We apologize for any inconvenience. Thank you for helping keep patients and staff safe.
If you have a serious medical problem and are seen in the emergency room, the hospital emergency room doctors are well-trained and able to perform appropriate initial care. They will make a referral to Olympia Orthopaedic Associates’ office for follow-up care if you choose a specialist in our practice. If the orthopaedic injury is complicated or severe, we are available and will respond to the emergency room doctor’s request.
If you need immediate medical assistance, please call 911.
You may be seen by one of our orthopaedic specialists on staff during our office hours:
Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
To schedule an appointment, please call (360) 709-6230 or use the request form.
Check Your Tech: Be connected to your home WiFi network. Sitting nearto your router will allow for the strongest signal. Position your phone so your provider can clearly see you on the screen, place it on a stand if possible.
Set the Stage: Minimize distractions. Make sure you are somewhere quiet so you and your provider can hear each other. Keep pets and children out of the room if possible. Sit somewhere comfortable so you are relaxed.
Have an Assistant Available: Designate someone to help hold your phone and take notes. A second set of hands can be helpful to position the phone during the exam portion of the visit. Prepare a list of questions ahead of time so you don’t forget anything.
Attire: Dress as you would for a visit to the clinic.
Examples: Wear shorts for a knee exam or tank top for a shoulder exam
New Car-Check-In Process:
In order to maintain safe social distances in our clinics, Olympia Orthopaedic Associates is asking patients to check-in from the safety of their car upon arrival to our clinics.
Once your appointment is scheduled with our registration team you will receive a text or email (if no smartphone) that confirms your appointment/time and asks that you complete your pre-appointment forms, please be sure that these forms are completed at home prior to your appt date or your appt may be canceled.
If your forms are not completed you will receive reminders at 2 days, at 24 hours and at 30 mins prior to your appointment, reminding you that they need to be completed.
15 mins prior to your appt you will receive a text or email (if no smartphone) that instructs you to call when you have arrived for your appt.
Our team will complete your check-in from your car, and let you know when we are ready for you to be screened (digital temperature reading and COVID protocol questions) to enter the clinic.
Thank you for helping us keep you safe and eliminate further risks.
