NOW OFFERING TELE-VISITS
During the COVID pandemic, we are offering Tele-Visit Consultations for some patients. Please contact us to see if your situation is a good fit for our Virtual Visits.
It’s our mission to ensure you experience the highest quality of care in a compassionate setting from our first contact and medical consultation through treatment and recovery. If we can help you at any time, please do not hesitate to call us.
Whether you have been referred by another provider, or you have a hernia that is need of repair, we will work with you on a thorough consultation, comprehensive diagnosis and we’ll present you with an appropriate treatment plan.
If you acquired your hernia at work and insurance coverage is available, we’ll help with your worker’s compensation plan.
BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT
You’re welcome to save time by downloading in advance and filling out the medical forms below, bringing them with you to the appointment. Or, you may arrive at the office 30 minutes in advance of your appointment to complete them, allowing us time to review the information.
If you bring your documents with you, please arrive fifteen minutes in advance of your appointment, so we can review them for complete information.
In some cases, we can send you a link to online web forms for your convenience and to save time. Call us to see if that’s a good solution for you.
INPATIENT AND OUTPATIENT SURGERY
Most surgical procedures for hernias are performed in an outpatient setting at Bend Surgery Center or St. Charles Hospital in both Bend and Redmond, where patients are able to go home after the surgery. If an inpatient stay is required, surgery is performed at St. Charles Hospital.
