Important Updates Related to COVID-19

If you have the following symptoms; fever, cough, shortness of breath, flu-like symptoms, have traveled outside the country, or been in contact with someone who has traveled outside the country and was ill, you must reschedule your appointment.

If you do not have any of the symptoms outlined above, and you are a patient coming for a visit to NOSS, please be aware that all NOSS patients are required to wear face masks or face covering while in our offices, as this helps protect our patients and our staff. If you do not have a medical-grade face mask, cloth face coverings fashioned from household items or made at home from common materials are sufficient.

Additionally, it is critical to emphasize that maintaining 6-feet social distancing remains important to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus. As such, NOSS is restricting the number of people in our waiting areas. Please call your Doctor’s administrative assistant from the parking lot before entering the building.

Lastly, to circumvent the need for physical visits, as an option, we are currently conducting Tele-Health visits with our Doctors and medical staff.

Please contact our office at 203-755-6677 to schedule your appointment, or schedule a Tele-Health visit, or reschedule your appointment if you have a fever, cough, shortness of breath, flu-like symptoms, have traveled outside the country, or been in contact with someone who has traveled outside the country and was ill.

Our patients experiences speak for themselves – here are some of them.

“Dr. Strugar gave me my life back. He is a master of his medical expertise. I thank him every day when I need to walk.”

“Dr. Johar has helped me to be pain-free since the first treatment I had. He is genuine and straight forward in his communication and I very much appreciate having him for my doctor.”

“Dr. Ghaly listens carefully to what you have to say, reviews your films and scans, and talks to you in layman’s terms. I cannot give anyone a higher recommendation.”

“Dr. Johar did a wonderful job relieving my back pain. This was my first time with a back doctor and he completely has my trust – he did excellent job with my back.”

“I’ve been going to NOSS for about 2 months and every time I go everyone is wonderful. The nurses before, during and after each procedure have been just great.”

“Excellent expertise in orthopedics. I have been treated by Dr. Flynn for over 20 years. Excellent bedside manner and takes time to explain details. Kind and caring.”

“Dr. Gorelick was attentive, asked appropriate questions, gave reassurance and was incredibly respectful, knowing that I was a nurse. My surgery went well, she was able to remove the tumor and I have absolutely no pain.”

“I feel very happy with Dr. Ghaly, he makes you feel relaxed during the procedure. I have been going to him over a year and have recommended him to family and friends.”
