Thanks to the commitment of our volunteers and partners, we continue accepting referrals and serving patients during the pandemic. We are working remotely to coordinate care, but patients are typically waiting longer than before because our specialty providers implement stringent hygiene protocols, including pre-procedure COVID-19 testing, to ensure safety.
Dr. Long, who has volunteered with OA since 1996, credits his office team, and the nurses, and the anesthesiologists at CPMC who make it easy for him to "just do" the procedures for OA patients.

“The fact that I needed medical care and was uninsured really affected me emotionally. I was constantly on edge. I was very worried thinking I had cancer and didn’t have the means to take care of it.”
