Patient Appointment

At Tahoe Forest Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, your needs are our highest concern. We understand how important it is for you to be seen in a timely manner. For this reason, we make every effort to accommodate appointments immediately upon request.


If you have a serious medical problem and are seen in the emergency room, the hospital emergency room doctors are well-trained and able to perform appropriate initial care. They will make a referral to Tahoe Forest Orthopedics & Sports Medicine for follow-up care if you choose a specialist in our practice. If the orthopedic injury is complicated or severe, we are available and will respond to the emergency room doctor’s request.

If you need immediate medical assistance, please call 911.
