The Ambulatory Care Clinic offers a variety of medical services to adults and children in the specialty areas of orthopaedics, rheumatology, neurology, and rehabilitation. Our multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals provides an individualized treatment plan for every patient. We accept Medicaid, Medicare, and many Managed Care Plans.
When you walk into Ambulatory Care Services for the first time, you will be assigned a registered nurse who is responsible for coordinating your care from the first appointment throughout all additional visits. The primary nurse will answer any of your questions or concerns. She will also serve as a liaison between you and other healthcare providers or any services that you require (e.g., ambulette services, social work services and physical, occupational and speech therapies-depending on your insurance).
Ambulatory Care Services utilizes a multidisciplinary team approach to patient care. We combine the unique skills of doctors, nurses, physical and occupational therapists, social workers, and nurse attendants to provide you with the best possible treatment. Our staff is also diverse and culturally sensitive - a number of staff members speak Spanish, Russian, and Chinese to better serve you. Given prior notice, we can also arrange interpreting services for other languages as well as for those who are deaf and hard of hearing.
