During these trying times, we have remained open and continue to serve the community we have proudly been a part of for almost 30 years. COVID-19 has effected everyone, including the Florida Spine Institute as we have transitioned care from in the office, to utilizing video conferencing appointments. We sincerely hope you and your families remain safe during these trying times, and eagerly look forward to seeing you back in the office as soon as our leaders deem it appropriate.
As concerns regarding the spread of Covid-19 continues to escalate in our community, the Pinellas County Commission has approved a “safer-at-home” order to take effect at noon on Thursday, March 26th. This order asks residents to stay at home except for essential needs which include healthcare visits to medical providers.
We want to assure you that the Florida Spine Institute fully supports this initiative and in an effort to further maintain the health and well-being of our patients, physicians and staff, have decided to discontinue any non-essential services for the time being and conduct all appointments via telephone. We hope this is a short term solution to a larger scale problem. Our hopes are this initiative taken by our local government, and steps like providers like ourselves in the community, are the steps needed to slow the progression of this virus.
We look forward to continuing to provide you and our community now and in the future.
