With many patients staying home to avoid the spread of COVID-19, Boston Orthotics & Prosthetics is offering a virtual/remote option for appointments.
Virtual appointments are offered through a system called Telehealth Services. All Boston O&P clinicians are available for Telehealth appointments, but some appointments, such as those that require measuring or fitting a device, must be conducted in person.
There is no additional charge for Telehealth appointments, and appointments can usually be scheduled within a few days.
Telehealth appointments can be conducted through a number of methods depending on the patient’s preferences and access to technology. Options include telephone, FaceTime, Zoom, Google Hangouts, and more.
If an appointment cannot be conducted virtually, an in-person appointment will be scheduled. All patients undergo a telephone screening process before in-person appointments.
