A Message from our Office to our Patients

At Southwest Foot & Ankle, the health and well-being of our patients, employees, and our community is our top priority. We understand the concern and uncertainty you may be experiencing surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) and we are committed to being responsive to the needs of our patients as the situation evolves.

We would like to reassure you that although we already utilize standard disease control precautions as outlined by the CDC, we are currently exceeding these precautions to further help prevent the spread of this virus and maintain a safe environment for you.

At this time, our office remains open for your foot and ankle needs and emergencies as they may arise. We will be listening to the recommendations of local and state health authorities, and we will advise you of any changes to our schedule.

To help protect the safety of all our patients and staff, we ask anyone that currently feels ill to please reschedule your appointment and to call your physician. This is especially true if you have a fever, cough, sneezing, or shortness of breath. The same thing applies if you have had any of these symptoms in the last 48 hours.

Please also reschedule your appointment if you have traveled outside the United States in the last two weeks to an area affected by the coronavirus disease. This includes China, Hong Kong, Iran, Italy, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, or Vietnam.

Our office hours will remain the same as usual. Our schedule has changed to allow 30 minutes in between each appointment, to minimize patients in our office at a given time. We have limited our patients to only one accompanying adult. Other friends or family will need to remain in the car. We continue to make every visit a pleasant and safe one. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our office. The team at Southwest Foot & Ankle is here to answer any questions that may arise about your podiatrist care.

Thank you for trusting us to be your podiatry providers.
