What we are doing to ensure the safety, health, and well being of our patients
Foot & Ankle Specialists is committed to improving the lives of our patients every day. As part of our mission, we remain dedicated to the health and welfare of our staff and our patients. To that end, we are closely monitoring the outbreak of the coronavirus known as COVID-19.
This is an evolving issue with new information coming forth daily. As a healthcare organization, we are closely monitoring directives from the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Florida Department of Health and other news sources.
For most of the American public, the immediate health risk from COVID-19 is considered low. People who have been in close contact with someone with a confirmed case of COVID-19 and travelers to affected international locations are at elevated risk of exposure. While research is ongoing, there is currently no vaccine available to prevent coronavirus or medication to cure the infection. Supportive care, including hospitalization and even intensive care as needed, has been used to successfully manage symptoms in many patients.
