Be Aware of Scam Phone Calls
Patients have been reporting to OCR that they have been receiving phone calls from individuals pretending to work for our office.
The caller typically asks the patient if they are still having foot, neck, or hip pain. They may try and sell a supplement or brace product.
The problem(s) the caller states often does not match the actual orthopaedic issue the patient has had.
Please be aware that these calls are scams.
The caller does not work for OCR. Our staff does not make these types of calls to our patients, and we have not had a breach of our patient database.
Caller ID shows that the numbers are out-of-state and the United States cell phone numbers. This is one of the numbers they call from +1 (970) 218-9248.
We believe that these scammers simply dial for dollars, attempting to cite the name of a local orthopaedic office – often saying our name incorrectly — and asking about any type of orthopaedic issue.
Fortunately, the patients have hung up on the callers and not provided any personal information. We encourage you to do the same.
You may contact us to report a scam call you have received – 970-419-7140 or firstname.lastname@example.org
