We are here for you at DSSP. We continue to offer Telehealth visits in addition to in-office appointments for evaluation and management of your pain complaints. In accordance with the new CDC guidelines regarding indoor mask use being optional based on the COVID-19 community level in Maricopa, it is now optional to wear a mask at DSSP. If you are sick, at-risk, or live with an at-risk individual, we encourage you to wear a mask. Additionally, if any patient prefers their provider to wear a mask, we will gladly continue wearing our masks during your in-person appointment.
