Per Governor Greg Abbott’s Executive Order on April 17th regarding the loosening of restrictions of procedures and surgeries, Abilene Bone & Joint has made the decision to proceed cautiously. Though our ‘no waiting room’ policy will remain in force, our medical team will closely monitor our local health facilities’ protocols, coupled with the City’s recommendations, in an effort to assure the upmost safety for our patients and our team members.

Just to recap, our ‘no waiting room’ policy is as follows: Abilene Bone & Joint Clinic plus Action Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy implemented a ‘No Waiting Room Policy’ effective March 30, 2020.

Abilene Bone & Joint Patients will receive a text and/or an email prior to their appointment which will allow them to pre-register, pay co-pays, and/or pay on their balance prior to checking in at the office for their respective appointment. Abilene Bone & Joint employees will be waiting for patients’ arrival in front of both locations – Cottonwood and Buffalo Gap Road.

Abilene Bone & Joint are asking the patient(s) to kindly drive by and inform the employee of their arrival and an ABJ representative will alert them when an exam room is available.

“The Big Country and the Abilene community are vital to our practice; we must work in conjunction with City and County officials to assure Abilene Bone & Joint are meeting standards set forth by our communities’ leadership,” explains Dr. Shannon Cooke, managing partner. “Working together will reap benefits both in the short term and long term for all of us in fighting this virus.”
