COVID-19 Update

Injuries still happen during a pandemic. And TOC is here to care for the Tennessee valley’s acute orthopaedic needs. To comply with the Governor Ivey’s recent stay-at-home order, we now have a letter composed for patients needing to travel to our clinics. The letter is available to download and print by clicking here.

Your health and safety is our biggest concern. All TOC clinics are compliant with social distancing requirements and offer a no-lobby wait option for patients. TOC also has a screening process for COVID-19 in place for TOC employees when arriving for work; and also for patients upon arrival for appointments.

To schedule an appointment, please call (256) 539-2728.
