Gustavel Orthopedics is actively monitoring the current COVID-19 outbreak while we remain open at our clinic location. The health and safety of our patients and our employees remains our top priority. Our goal is to continue to offer the best orthopedic care to our new and existing patients during this unprecedented time.
We are following the current CDC recommendations to help prevent exposure and spread of COVID-19. We have implemented the following guidelines to help prevent spread of the virus and to promote social distancing:
- Screening employees and patients upon entry to the clinic.
- Appropriate spacing of patient appointments to control waiting room volume.
- Only the patient or a parent of a minor will be allowed at the appointment.
- You have the option to check in for your appointment from the parking lot by calling (208) 957-7400. You will be notified when the physician is ready to see you.
- Adhering to CDC cleaning guidelines.
To aid in the effort to keep our patients safe and continue to provide essential orthopedic care, we are now offering telemedicine visits for our patients as an alternative to in-person office visits. Please call the office for further information to set up an appointment.
If you have an upcoming appointment or are looking to schedule an appointment, we will ask the following questions:
- Are you currently experiencing a cough, fever or shortness of breath?
- Have you traveled outside of Idaho or out of the country in the last 14 days or been in close contact with anyone who has?
- Have you been in physical contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19?
Answering yes to any of the above questions will result in the rescheduling of your appointment.
If you would like to request a telehealth visit, please call our office at (208) 957-7400.
We are carefully and thoroughly wiping down surfaces in our waiting room, front desk and in our exam rooms between patient visits.
- Wash your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds.
- Stay at home if you are sick especially if you are experiencing a cough, fever or shortness of breath.
- Avoid touching you face with your hands.
- Cover your mouth and nose if you sneeze or cough.
Thank you for your cooperation and your continued support during this pandemic.
