    PATIENT APPOINTMENTS

    As previously stated, we are open and seeing and scheduling patients both in-office and via telemedicine. As a preventative measure you will be asked screening questions when you schedule your appointment and when you arrive at our offices.

    If you experience an acute foot or ankle injury, condition or wound issue requiring prompt attention, please call our office at (614) 895-8747. During regular business hours, ask to speak to a clinical team member. Our on-call physician is available for urgent after-hours concerns to help avoid unnecessary trips to the ER.


    MASKS & FACE COVERINGS

    Based on the guidance of the CDC, as well as state and local municipality recommendations, all patients and visitors are asked to wear their own well-fitting face covering upon arrival to and throughout their stay in our office. Your cooperation is appreciated. Please note these specific recommendations and mandates that impact our office locations:

    • Franklin County (9/9/2021) - Franklin County Commissioners called on all municipalities in Franklin County to enact mask mandates throughout their jurisdiction.
    • Worthington (9/16/2021) - Worthington City Council passed Ordinance 45-2021 at its September 13, 2021 meeting requiring the wearing of face coverings to reduce and prevent the spread of COVID-19 and declaring an emergency. The ordinance will be in effect for six months or until it is rescinded.
    • Dublin (8/5/2021) – Vaccinated and not vaccinated people are strongly encouraged to wear a face covering while indoors and in crowded spaces (both indoors and outdoors).

    • SOCIAL DISTANCING

      For the safety and respect of all, we ask that patients maintain at least 6 feet of distance from staff and other patients while in our office.


      OUR OFFICES

      As healthcare providers, state regulatory agencies require that we maintain our offices according to strict protocols for sterilization and disinfection. These protocols provide consistent protection to patients and providers at all times and are especially important in regard to the current situation with COVID-19. In addition to standard protocols we have increased the frequency of our sanitation process.


      If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office at (614) 895-8747.
