Foot and Ankle Surgeons/Specialists
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.
A message from the management of the Elgin Foot and Ankle Center: 5/4/2020
We thank all of our patients for your understanding as we have made numerous modifications to our schedule during this Coronavirus Pandemic.
During this pandemic our office has remained open to treat those with urgent/emergent issues. As of the beginning of May 2020 we expanded back to our regular hours in order to provide service the many patients for whom treatment is now necessary. Please call 847-741-3127 to make an appointment. We are no longer limiting appointments to urgent/emergent and are seeing all foot and ankle issues that wish to be seen while using precautions to keep everyone safe.
To keep everyone safe, we have instituted the following policies:
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.
We always answer emergency calls to our pager (847-203-0103) promptly, 24-7.
We are now using telemedicine where and when appropriate.
We hope that you all continue to stay safe and healthy.
