At Heartland Foot & Ankle Associates, the health and safety of you and your family has always been our top concern. That has never changed.
The question, now, is this: with more and more people being asked to stay at home to contain the spread of COVID-19, how do we continue to offer essential health services to our patients while keeping that commitment?
One important way we’re doing this is by offering telemedicine services.
Telehealth enables you to meet with Dr. Lockwood for a virtual appointment via a video call. No need to come to the office!
Who Can Have a Telemedicine Appointment?
Currently, we are offering telemedicine as an option for patients with non-urgent concerns. This includes most initial examinations, most follow-up appointments—really any kind of visit that doesn’t require us to directly administer a physical test or treatment in order to be valuable and useful.
If you aren’t sure whether your situation applies for a telemedicine appointment, please give our office a call and ask! You might be surprised how much can be accomplished over video alone! And by making this an option to our patients, we’re providing safe and extremely efficient access to care that benefits our patients and keeps them out of the hospital system.
MORE OPTIONS TO GET YOU THE CARE YOU NEED
Again, the health of you and your family is always the most important thing to us. But even in the middle of a pandemic, you deserve high-quality care for your feet and ankles, to the greatest extent possible.
That’s why we’re working so hard to provide you with convenient, accessible options to address your concerns quickly, effectively, and safely. If you have an urgent need, or would like to explore telemedicine for your routine care, please contact our office today at (309) 661-9975.
