Patient Appointment

At The Bone & Joint Center, your needs are our highest concern. We understand how important it is for you to be seen in a timely manner. For this reason, we make every effort to accommodate appointment requests via a convenient online request form.


If you have a serious medical problem and are seen in the emergency room, the hospital emergency room doctors are well-trained and able to perform appropriate initial care. They will make a referral to The Bone & Joint Center's office for follow-up care if you choose a specialist in our practice. If the orthopaedic injury is complicated or severe, we are available and will respond to the emergency room doctor’s request.

If you are in need of immediate medical assistance, please call 911.

All appointment requests will be addressed within 24 hours of submission. Appointment requests made on weekends and holidays may be addressed on the next business day.

If you need immediate assistance by our staff, please do not fill out this form and call our office at (518) 489-2666.

You may be seen by one of our orthopaedic specialists on staff during our office hours:

Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
