My daughter and I had such an impressive experience with this physician group yesterday that I feel compelled to share our experience and my opinion that they are a valuable asset to our community!
Triangle Orthopaedic Associates opened up their 8 local offices yesterday from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 Â p.m. Â to provide the health physicals necessary for local high school athletes in order to compete this academic year. Â For a $10 fee, student athletes had their basic level of health checked and their forms signed.
The beauty of theÂ assembly-line style of wellness checks was Â quite an amazing sight, too. Â Get your eyes checked in this room. Â Walk down the hall to get your blood pressure checked. Â Height and weight in this room. Â Doctors waving the next kid into an exam room for the final check. Â While in the exam room with the physician, there was no rush, however. Â The doctor asked many questions, offered advice, and made us feel as if my daughter was his only patient.
Now, of course, not being completely naieve, I realize there’s a business angle to this community service byÂ Triangle Orthopaedic Associates, in that if these student athletes experience a sports injury, they will be predisposed to visit one of Triangle’s physicians for treatment. Â But a smart business practice does not detract from the generous donation of offering your expertise to the community in this way.
Oh, did I mention that they are donating the $10 fee back to the athletes’ schools? Â Win, win, win.
