The Doctor Is In
- Over the last few months, we’ve adapted to a new normal that includes social distancing and masks. Our office has made necessary adjustments to keep patients and staff safe, including limiting the number of in-office visits and adhering to stringent cleaning guidelines.
- While going to a doctor’s office may seem nerve wracking right now, it’s important to continue taking care of your overall wellness, including your feet. Healthy feet and ankles are crucial for balance, mobility and a healthy body.
- If you suspect an issue that warrants a trip to our office, don’t worry—we are taking precautions to keep you safe. We’ve ramped up strict cleaning and sanitation procedures before and after patients, utilizing protective equipment, spacing out appointments to limit crossing of patients, minimizing use of waiting rooms and taking patients directly into exam rooms and pre-screening patients to ensure no one is sick.
- Remember it is also still important to pay attention to your feet and take steps to keep your feet healthy-especially during this time.
- Check your feet daily to spot any problems. If you notice any changes, contact our office immediately.
CORONA VIRUS PROTOCOLS
To keep our patients and staff safe, we have instituted the following protocols:
- We require that all patients wear facemasks.
- No children are allowed in the office unless they are the patient.
- No guests are allowed to accompany a patient unless the patient needs assistance getting into the office, and in those cases only one guest is allowed.
- If you display symptoms of COVID-19, or have been in close contact with anyone displaying symptoms of COVID-19, call our office 847-741-3127, do NOT come into the office.
COVID TOES is a new term referring to COVID-19 patients presenting with red or purple discoloration, found most commonly on the tips of toes and on hands and fingers. Patients with the dark sores, particularly children and adolescents, have tested positive for COVID-19 in Spain, as well as in Italy and France. There has been increasing speculation as to the cause, etiology, and relationship between the COVID-19 virus and these findings. This is very preliminary, but is highly suggestive that there may be a vascular component associated with COVID. COVID TOES is just beginning to be studied by both podiatrists and dermatologists.
