Now Making (cyber) Housecalls!

Choosing a prosthetist can be a difficult decision. Traveling out of the immediate area to receive prosthetic care can be daunting. The risk of not developing a rapport with the practitioner, worrying about communicating goals, and confusion about the fitting process serve to compound the uneasiness. At OPC, we strive to make the process of exploring our facility a positive experience.

We are pleased to offer complimentary Skype consultations for prospective patients. If you are interested in our services, simply call and ask for a Skype appointment. With a computer and a webcam, you can meet our prosthetists and learn what we can offer. Don't have Skype? It's free and easy to install.

Go to to establish your account. After providing your demographic information, you will be asked to provide a "Skype name" and password. The user name becomes the identifier when making and receiving calls. A prompt will then appear to walk you through the installation process.

With Skype, you have the ability to speak directly with our prosthetists and have your questions answered. Because of the video component, evaluating your current prosthetic components and demonstrating other options become easy. By offering complimentary Skype consultations, we are hoping to alleviate much of the anxiety that often accompanies switching prosthetic facilities. We appreciate the value of your time and want to make getting to know OPC as convenient as possible.

If you are an existing patient, we consider Skype to be another communication tool. If you have a concern about your existing device or have a few questions for your prosthetist, feel free to request a Skype appointment. We are striving to minimize the amount of time that our patients invest when traveling to and from our facility for appointments.
