A Team Committed to Orthopedic Excellence at Arch Health Medical Group

At Arch Health Medical Group, we provide access to specialty orthopedic care at a variety of locations. Our three orthopedics offices strive to provide specialized, personalized care that begins with your first call to our office. Our staff understands that orthopedic pain can have a negative impact on your daily life. That's why we are dedicated to seeing patients as soon as possible-usually, within 24 hours.
As a participating member of the Center of Orthopedic Excellence for Palomar Health, we work closely with Palomar to continuously improve patient outcomes and provide superior care. Our very own Dr. James Bried is the physician leader for the Center of Orthopedic Excellence allowing Arch Health to be at the forefront of innovation, best practices and accountability that characterize quality in care in orthopedics. 
Our orthopedic physicians form a part of the surgical family at Palomar Health* for most of the procedures they perform. Through this partnership and the continuous efforts of the Center of Orthopedic Excellence, we have been able to make the pre and postsurgical processes more efficient and comfortable for the patient and increase safety protecting patients from unwanted complications. 
Our surgical results and patient satisfaction ratings speak for themselves and are a true testament to the great strides that our orthopedic department continues to make each and every day.
