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 p.m. to provide the health physicals necessary for local high school athletes in order to compete this academic year. For a $10 fee, student athletes had their basic level of health checked and their forms signed.
The beauty of the assembly-line style of wellness checks was quite an amazing sight, too. Get your eyes checked in this room. Walk down the hall to get your blood pressure checked. Height and weight in this room. Doctors waving the next kid into an exam room for the final check. While in the exam room with the physician, there was no rush, however. 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 by 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. 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? Win, win, win.
