As many of you are aware, I (Dr. Laird Bridgman) underwent spinal fusion surgery the first week of August, 2018. My surgery was very successful and recovery is progressing faster than my doctors predicted. I returned to the office with limited hours effective September 12, 2018. My current schedule is Wednesday and Thursdays from 9 am to 2 pm. Each week I plan to open up a few more hours, and I hope to open Tuesdays within a couple two or three weeks. However I also owe it to you and to me to pay very close attention to how my body reacts and recovers after each day. I owe it to all of us to be at 100% for everyone throughout each day and week.
If you are an existing patient and have not yet had an opportunity to get in, please call me (949-636-2207). If you are not an established patient, please understand I may not be able to meet with you until mid October, potentially later. My doctors predicted I would be out 3 months, so for me to be back in less than 6 weeks is remarkable, maybe even a little miraculous. If you are able/willing to wait, feel free to reach out. Depending upon your situation I may be able to see you sooner.
I would like to extend my personal appreciation and gratitude for all of your messages of encouragement and support. I look forward to catching up with everyone as soon as I can.
Rev., Dr. Laird Bridgman, Psy.D., C.E.A.P.
