We are pleased to be able to offer you telemedicine visits for your convenience and safety. For many of you a visit using telemedicine can work just as well as an in office visit. I can 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.
At the time you make your appointment we'll let you know if your visit 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, knock at the door and we'll let you know when to come in. We'll take your temperature with a non-contact thermometer and give you a mask to put on if you aren't already wearing one.
New CDC Mask Guidelines and Our Office: While the CDC has recently released new guidelines saying that vaccinated people can now go without masks, our office is continuing to require everyone wear a mask.
If you do not have a mask or have forgotten your mask, call our office when you are in our parking lot and one of us will bring you a mask. Hours
At this time we are open from 8:00 am - 6:00 pm, Monday through Thursday and 8:00 am - 12:00 pm on 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.
