Due to the COVID-19 state and national emergency declarations, we are limiting in office visits to only those that are absolutely necessary for urgent orthopaedic needs. Our phones remain open and we can see you as a telemedicine visit to address your issue. Please call our office at 610-756-7914 to discuss your orthopaedic issue and schedule the appropriate appointment type.

Telemedicine visits include a scheduled video contact appointment with our providers on your smart phone or computer (or voice only if you do not have video capability). Medicare is covering these visits and likely most commercial insurers will cover them during this period, possibly with a waiver of copay. We will not hold you responsible for more than your normal visit copay or a maximum of $50 if your insurance company denies the telemedicine visit.
