Founded in 1981, Blue Ridge Orthopaedics (BROA) is one of the largest orthopaedic groups in the Upstate. Our skilled team of surgeons, fellowship-trained primary care providers, physician assistants, nurses and administrative staff is dedicated to delivering efficient and high-quality care. We focus on serving the total musculoskeletal needs of our community and extend beyond the clinical and surgical setting.
BROA has served as orthopaedic physicians for Clemson University’s athletic teams since 1988 and proudly serves Anderson University and Erskine College as well. In addition to college athletes, we provide football sideline coverage and care for high school athletes in the Oconee, Anderson and Pickens areas. In the spring, we perform over 1,500 sports physicals for high school athletes. During the fall, our Saturday morning Bump and Bruise Clinics provide convenient care for minor injuries sustained in Friday night football games.
In an effort to provide efficient service, we see all patients on an appointment basis. Please call in advance so that we may reserve time for you. Bring your health insurance cards and, if your health insurance requires one, a referral from your primary care physician. Call your preferred office to make an appointment.
Please note that if you have had any tests completed in film form, such as X-rays or MRIs, at Oconee Memorial Hospital, AnMed Health Medical Center, AnMed Urgent Care, or Mountain View Imaging, you are not responsible for obtaining those prior to your appointment with us UNLESS you are scheduled to see James McGeorge, MD, or Sean McCallum, MD. We are able to view digital films from a shared system with these facilities. If you had X-rays or MRIs done at any facility other than those listed, you will need to obtain and bring those films to your scheduled appointment.
Appointments can be made by phoning our office during regular business hours, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. If you require immediate attention outside of our regular hours, please call our office and the answering service will contact the doctor on call.
If you cannot keep an appointment or feel you no longer need to be seen, please call within 24 hours to cancel your appointment. This allows us to accommodate the scheduling needs of all our patients.
We will complete information required for disability forms ($10 fee) or Family Medical Leave Act ($25 fee). Payment will be collected when forms are dropped off at our office and will be completed within 7 to 10 days.
If you have questions regarding a billing statement, please call us. We accept cash, check, Mastercard, and Visa.
We participate with most health insurance plans. If a patient is not a member of any of our current participating plans, we will be more than happy to discuss options with them. The cost of a visit to our office depends on the services performed by the physician or physician assistant. Unless other arrangements have been made, payment is expected at the time of service. As a service to our patients, we will file on their health insurance(s). We do ask that payment of any deductible, co-insurance or co-pays be made at the time the service is rendered.
If a patient has no insurance or does not provide us with verification of insurance (i.e., insurance cards), he or she is considered to be a self-pay patient. Patients without insurance will be expected to pay for all charges in full or set up a payment plan at checkout.
