COVID-19 Safety Procedures

What to expect during your appointment?

If you are sick with a cold, sinus, fever, cough, bronchitis – please call us to setup a telemedicine visit. (coming soon)

Ankle and Foot Center has the following safety procedures in place to ensure the protection of all patients and staff:

  • We are asking patients to wait in their vehicle and kept outside of the waiting room prior to their appointment whenever possible
    • When you arrive staff will take a cell phone number and call you prior to your appointment
    • If a patient cannot wait in their vehicle, we will limit the number of patients (and guests) in the waiting room and assign seats
  • We will take temperatures of all patients and visitors
    • AFC has adopted the most conservative threshold (99.1 degrees) to indicate a fever
    • Any patient or visitor meeting or exceeding this threshold will be asked to reschedule
  • We will ask you questions about having any respiratory illness and recent travel
  • Any patient who has flu-like symptoms above (e.g., Fever, Cough, Difficulty Breathing) will be advised to contact their Family Physician and reschedule

Further Protecting our Workforce:

  • Our staff is disinfecting all iPad kiosks that are handled by anyone in the office with isopropyl alcohol wipe or a Clorox Disinfecting Wipe
  • After each visit, our staff is cleaning all surfaces with disinfectants- counters, beds, and seating
  • Employees with flu-like symptoms or who have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID – 19 must self-quarantine and are not allowed to come to work unless tested and cleared
