May is skin cancer awareness month! If you have a lesion on the leg or foot that you are concerned about please call us so we can evaluate and manage this for you.

Reconstructive Foot and Ankle Institute Patients,

We remain open but please call us prior to your appointment if you:

  1.  Have returned from outside the U.S. or visited an area defined by the CDC as an area of high risk IN THE LAST 14 DAYS. 
  2. Have had direct contact with an individual with confirmed coronavirus (COVID-19) IN THE LAST 14 DAYS. 
  3. Have had direct contact with a person who is currently being quarantined for coronavirus (COVID-19) exposure IN THE LAST 14 DAYS. 
  4. Have felt feverish and had a cough in the last 24 hours.

We are taking all steps set forth by the CDC to keep our environment safe for our staff and our patients. Our goal is to minimize wait times in our reception area for each patient so we have removed all the chairs from the reception area and patients are brought into a private exam room upon entering the office. As always, we clean each room after each patient and only use sterile instruments.  We require all patients to use face masks and only allow the patient into the building.  Guests of the patient can wait in the car in the parking lot. We deep clean the office now daily and after each patient. We also routinely have our carpets cleaned and disinfected. In addition, we are monitoring all patients’ temperatures via infrared thermometry. To keep the air clean we use the HVAC circulation fans which filters the air and use exhaust fans in each room as well as opening the windows for fresh air on nice days. We have a no smoking or vaping policy at all of our properties.
