To our Patients: 

Over the pst several weeks, we have been contiuously monitoring the COVID-19 crisis closely.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to those among us who have been affected by this historic event. During these challenging and uncertain times our top priority continues to be the health and safety of our patients, staff and community.

As of this moment, we feel confident that our office can continue to provide quality care to our patients in a safe and sanitized clinical environment.  We have had no known encounters with coronavirus at our offfice, with any of our patients or with any staff. Therefore, our office will remain open and fully operational to treat our patents needs.

We have as a result of CDC guidelines taken extra sanitary precautions above and beyond our normal techniques.

How are we responding

We understand the importance of a clean and safe medical facility.  Therefore, each day we will implement the following additional additional precautionay cleaning protocols:

-Inquiring of all patients with scheduled visits and staff about any recent travel and potential exposure to persons with actual or suspected flu-like symptoms

-Ensuring that patients who visit our facilities take additional sanitary actions, including washing their hands or utilizing hand sanitizer prior to coming to the treatment room

-Screening patients and employees and advising any who feel sick to remain at home and reschedule appointments

Increasing the frequency of disinfecting all surfaces, including door knobs in between patient encounters and throughout the day

What we ask of our patients

We continue to ask all of you to practice safety measures at home as well as when you visit our clinic. Elderly patients and patients with compromised immune systems have a high risk for complications and should use their discretion as to the need to be seen for their scheduled appointment or if they should cancel and reschedule at a later date. If you are experiencing any signs or symptoms of a respiratory illness, fever, cough, shortness of breath or fatigue we ask that you please stay home.

As stated above we currently are open and seeing patients at our regularly scheduled times. We would like you to know that the safety of our patients and staff is our highest priority.

Thank you for your continued confidence in us!

The physicians and staff of Michigan Foot and Ankle Institute

Keeping your feet healthy can help add years to your life, by allowing you to pursue an active lifestyle.  As an avid runner for over 35 years I know first hand the benefits, but also know that a nagging injury can limit your ability to pursue your running aspirations.  In future postings I'll discuss common running injuries and prevention and treatment.
