Pioneering Hand Specialists
Seattle Hand


Appointments are available to patients needing to see a Hand Specialist beginning on Monday, May 4th.

We have put in place new protocols to protect our patients, our staff, our doctors, and our community.

  • Expect to be asked COVID-19 screening questions at the time you make your appointment and again when you arrive.
  • We will require every patient to wear a mask during your entire visit to our office.  If you don’t have a cloth or paper mask of your own, we will provide a disposable paper mask.
  • We ask that adult patients not requiring extra help or language interpretation arrive solo.  Minors are allowed one adult to accompany them.  Please ask escorts to wait in the car or somewhere outside where they can also practice social distancing.

Telehealth consultations will be offered to eligible evaluations in order to support our greater community in decreasing person to person interactions.  We offer convenient hours to video conference with your Seattle Hand Doctor &/or Hand Therapist.  Telehealth is available to established and new patients.  If you don’t want to leave home but desire an evaluation please inquire about Telehealth.

Please note that most surgical procedures are not allowed in the State of Washington until after May 18th.  We are scheduling now for the future.  We will open extra hours to accommodate for these cases if demand is high or if Governor Inslee pushes back the date further .  Please call after May 4th to speak with your Surgeon’s Medical Assistant to inquire about available surgery dates.
