YES, We're open!
Come on in
In this time of adversity, the STBJ family continues to make your care our number one priority. Our goal is to remain fully staffed during this trying time and take the orthopaedic burden off the local Hospitals and ERs. If you have an orthopaedic injury, consider coming to our walk-in Priority Care clinic, instead of flooding the emergency rooms. We are fully equipped with our in-house digital x-ray, casting, labs, and medical equipment to help you through almost any orthopaedic trauma.
Our sub- specialty orthopaedic surgeons, physicians, and staff will continue to provide professional and excellence in care. We remain focused on the safety of our patients, public, and the medical team within our facility. We continue to take every precaution to decrease the risk of infection. Let’s take this obstacle as an opportunity to continue to thrive as a community.
During this complex time, South Texas Bone and Joint, continues to make your medical care our priority. We are taking precautions to keep you and your family safe during your visits with us.
We kindly ask for 1 visitor to accompany the patient to the clinic area and we are restricting anyone under 18, excluding patients, from entering the clinic area. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for understanding.
We are limiting the number of patients within our waiting area and have rearranged seating to distance patients who are waiting for their appointments. We ask that chairs not be removed from their current placement.
We are sending out screening questionnaires to better assess your medical status. We ask that you complete them honestly and completely prior to your visit. Again, if you are not feeling well, we ask you to call and reschedule your appointment.
As a secondary screening measure, we will be providing fever screening as you enter the STBJ lobby. A temperature of over 99 degrees F. will be considered elevated and you may be asked to reschedule your appointment.
IMPORTANT: If you have COVID-19 or think you may have been exposed, please contact us in advance before coming in and please contact the Corpus Christi – Nueces County Public Health District at 361-826-7200 and a representative will give you instructions.
