Message to Our Patients

At Foot & Ankle Affiliates, we are keeping up to date on all updates pertaining to the Coronavirus (COVID-19).  We are taking every precaution we can and telephone screening all patients prior to their appointments to keep all of you, your family and our staff healthy and safe.

Due to concerns about the Coronavirus, we are asking all patients to stay at home if you are experiencing any symptoms or if you have been exposed to anyone who has tested positive for the virus.

Known symptoms include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, and shortness of breath.  Please call the office to reschedule your appointment if any of this applies to you.

We are taking all necessary precautions to disinfect our treatment rooms and all common areas and hope that each of you will do what is necessary to maintain your health and safety.

While at your appointment, please minimize the number of surfaces you touch. (In the exam room, please only touch the exam table, the extra chair, and the clothing hooks if possible.)

In some circumstances,  you may prefer to arrange a televisit (via your computer or smart phone) with one of our doctors. Please contact the office to schedule this type of appointment.  We will discuss this with you and help facilitate the process and schedule you!

Thank you
