Why Choose Community Bone and Joint?
Whether you’re experiencing pain in your elbows, wrists, knees, shoulders, hips, feet or ankles, we can diagnose and treat your joint condition. Our team
of professionals has years of experience and are exceptionally skilled in a range of general and specialized orthopedic medicine.
If surgery is part of your treatment plan, your
procedure may be performed in our office or at Lakeland Hospital, Watervliet Joint Replacement Unit. In some cases, our patients can go home to recover without an overnight stay. Whenever possible, we use arthroscopic surgery and other minimally invasive surgical techniques to promote rapid healing.
We want you to feel better and get on with your
life as quickly as possible and, of course, that’s
what you want, too!

Community Medical Center Walk-in Clinic
If you have an urgent need after our regular office hours, please visit the Walk-in Clinic located inside Lakeland Hospital, Watervliet or go the nearest Emergency Department and they will contact us on your behalf.
Our patients are usually referred to us by their family doctor for care. However, a doctor’s referral isn’t necessary to request an appointment. For your first appointment, please plan to arrive 15 minutes
before your scheduled visit to allow time for any necessary paperwork.
You will need to bring the following items with you:
- Insurance cards including Medicare or Medicaid
- Any prior X-rays for the condition for which
you are being seen
- Completed medical history forms sent to you
by our office
If you cannot keep an appointment, please call us at (269) 463-3600 at least 24 hours in advance to cancel or reschedule. This allows us to schedule another patient for this time and helps us serve
our patients more efficiently.
