The overall health and well-being of our patients, physicians, and staff members is our #1 top priority at Achilles Foot and Ankle Center. (AFAC). We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation for the health and safety of everyone at Achilles Foot and Ankle Center.
We are currently available in-office and telehealth appointments to new and established patients for their full foot and ankle care. To schedule an appointment today at any of our 5 convenient locations in Central Virginia, click here. We do offer same-day appointments too.
To continue to treat patients safely, we are:
- Screening patients for symptoms, travel, or exposure to viruses prior to scheduling an appointment
- Scheduling with increased time between appointments and limiting time spent in our lobby for social distancing
- Heightened and repeated cleaning of surfaces
- Limiting unnecessary visitors to our office (only one visitor per patient)
- Physicians and clinical staff are to wear masks while interacting with patients
- Offering telehealth visits to our established patients, when possible
- Employee health screening before each shift begins
