There has recently been a lot of concern surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak. As medical professionals, our patient’s health and safety remain our top priorities. As major cities are being quarantined, we are working harder than ever to ensure our facilities are sanitized and disinfected properly. Our doctors, specialists, and front desk administrators are consistently sanitizing, cleaning and disinfecting all our medical equipment and highly-trafficked areas thoroughly, before, during, and after each patient visit.
Our Precautionary Measures:
- Taking all necessary precautions to protect the health and well-being of our patients and staff
- Ensuring medical equipment is cleaned and disinfected thoroughly before, during, and after each patient visit
- Pre-screening our patients prior to their appointments
- Conducting on-site wellness checkups to verify the health of each patient before treatment
- Increasing precautions at our clinics located in areas in state of emergency
- Increasing sanitation of high-traffic areas
- Emphasizing the importance of employee’s personal hygiene
With the ongoing spread of COVID-19, it is very crucial to avoid physical contact with anyone, especially in high-traffic public spaces. Avoid touching your mouth, nose, or eyes, especially when out in public, and wash your hands thoroughly before and after eating and using the restroom.
The easiest and most effective method of minimizing risk of the virus’s transmission is to maximize social distance. As rates of new infections continue to rise, we are taking the necessary precautionary measures to protect our patients and ensure they get the treatment they need.
Why Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) Treatment Should Not Be Delayed
Due to the nature of Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) and the potential for the condition to become more complicated, we encourage anyone struggling with this condition to go through with the recommended treatment to avoid developing any serious issues. Although it’s important to understand the risks of COVID-19 exposure, we ensure you that you’re in good, safe, (and clean) hands when you visit one of our clinics.
PAD is a condition that raises the risk for heart attack and stroke. It develops when your arteries become clogged with plaque—fatty deposits that limit blood flow to your legs. Just like clogged arteries in the heart, clogged arteries in the legs are indicating you are at high risk for having a heart attack or stroke. If PAD treatment is delayed, arterial plaque will continue to buildup, significantly increasing the risk for serious complications like Pulmonary Embolism (PE), stroke, and heart attack. This is why anyone with a confirmed diagnosis of PAD is advised to pursue the necessary treatment.
With help from our team of skilled medical professionals, combined with the support from our administrators and technicians, we are prepared to do anything we can to reassure you of your safety when receiving treatment from us. That’s why we have decided to offer consultations online, so you can go over your treatment options before you come in for an appointment. This is in order to minimize exposure risk and ensure you get the treatment you need. Give us a call and one our representatives would be happy to walk you through the process.
If you have any concerns regarding your treatment, or if you need help rescheduling your appointment, don’t hesitate to reach out. We are here to answer any questions you may have about your treatment or about our COVID-19 precautionary measures.
