In Office and Telemedicine Visits
We are proud to be able to offer you in office and telemedicine visits during this time to provide you with the safest and highest level of care possible. Foot pain doesn't stop just because we are dealing with Covid-19. In fact, many of you are out walking more and experiencing greater levels of foot pain as a result.
For many of you a telemedicine visit can work just as well as an in office visit. I can easily examine your feet and ankles, discuss your symptoms and problems, review previous concerns or lab results, discuss any self-care options, and give you great guidance and recommendations on what the “next steps” should be.
If your appointment doesn’t necessarily require an in person procedure, there’s really no downside to conducting it remotely. You get all the same insight and care you need, without having to leave your house or expose yourself or others to unnecessary risk.
At the time you make your appointment we'll let you know if your visit will be in person or whether your appointment can be handled effectively via telemedicine.
What About Procedures That Can't Be Done Remotely
Of course not all procedures can be done remotely. Those who have Injuries, diabetic wounds, ingrown toenails, or an infection will need to be seen in the office.
What We Are Doing To Protect Patients in the Office
For in office visits we are following all appropriate CDC guidelines to maintain your safety and good health including wearing masks, gowns, sanitizing everything on a regular basis, and providing social distancing. When you come to the office you'll call us and then we'll let you in the building. You'll need to take your temperature and put on a mask if you aren't already wearing one.
At this time we are open from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. Lucy Gleeson will be answering the phone during those hours to set up your appointment. Call us at 206-368-7000. You can also request an appointment online.
If you think you've been infected with the virus call the COVID-19 hotline at 855-520-2285.
Be safe and well!
