ESSENTIAL SERVICES

To AVOID the Hospital ER
 
 
 
Dear Valued Patients of Riverview Foot and Ankle Associates,
 
Here is updated important information.
 
Situations change almost daily and are quite confusing. We are trying to navigate through this maze together. In an effort designed to slow and limit the spread of COVID-19, we are taking the necessary steps to continue to provide "essential services". 
 
Our goal is to remain OPEN, on a limited basis, providing “essential services” in our effort to keep you out of the hospital Emergency Rooms and saving the valuable resources at the ER for more serious emergencies.   
 
What are Essential Services?
Essential services are defined as those medical services necessary to protect the health, safety and welfare of the community. Don't confuse Emergency conditions with Essential Medical Services. 
IMPORTANT! True emergencies should still go to the ER. 
 
Feel free to call us, 732-747-2111, if you have any questions. 
Essential Services provided by Riverview Foot and Ankle Associates that can help you avoid the Hospital ER include: 
 
What are Essential Services?
Foot & Ankle pain or injury that may need X-Rays 
Suturing (Stitches) needed for fresh cuts or bleeding skin tears
Severe Gout pain
Open wounds on legs or feet 
Diabetic foot care
Foot Infections or cellulitis of legs that we can treat with antibiotics 
Ingrown nails that can cause infections if left untreated or improperly treated
Painful Warts that limit activity of daily living
For more information of Essential Services": https://www.cdc.gov/publichealthgateway/publichealthservices/essentialhealthservices.html 
 
What are Non-Essential Services?
Routine care of trimming toenails and calluses (unless you have Diabetes, Poor Circulation, Neuropathy or Pain)
Routine follow-up or check-up of previously treated problems that have greatly improved 
Non-painful warts
Diabetic shoes
Elective Surgery of Bunions and Hammertoes
 
While we remain OPEN on a limited basis, we have cancelled elective hospital surgery and will be suspending treatment of "non-essential" foot & ankle care for the next 15 days, to repeat, in an effort to slow and limit the spread of COVID-19. We understand that the pause may last longer than 15 days, as information changes almost daily.

For "non-essential" services, feel free to discuss your care via email, but do not use this for emergency issues: [email protected]
 
As always, every physician and employee of Riverview Foot and Ankle Associates wash their hands thoroughly between patients or wear gloves. The treatment rooms and tables are disinfected between EVERY patient, and all of our instruments and supplies are disinfected, sterilized, or disposable. 
 
We have rearranged our waiting room to create a larger distance between waiting patients in an effort to minimize the spread of any possible illness, and other arrangements can be made such as waiting in the parking lot. 
 
If you have symptoms of fever, cough, or shortness of breath, please defer your appointment by 14 days. 
 
Thank you for your co-operation and we appreciate each and every one of our patients as we get through this together.

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: 

To Our Valued Patients,

3/18/2020: We will now be accepting Telemedicine consultations with our doctors. If you are having a foot/ankle issue, please call the office during regular business hours. If the issue can be addressed via video communications, such as FaceTime or Skype, we will set an appointment time. If an in-person office appointment is required, we will schedule you in the office. This applies to new and exisiting patients. As always, we are following CDC guidelines for cleaning procedures and are scheduling patients at various intervals to avoid wait times.  

3/16/2020: Given the recent increase in Covid-19 cases in our area, we are closely observing and enacting all of the necessary precautions outlined by the CDC. The health of our patients is our number one priority and therefore we will be following essential cleaning procedures in the office.

For the time being we are planning to reschedule all non-urgent visits to the office. If you have an appointment in the next 2 weeks, you will be hearing from us in the coming days. We do this to look out for the health of our patients. If you are having foot/ankle issues please call us, at this time we are remaining open to help patients with urgent issues. We ask that you not visit the office if you’ve had recent exposure to Covid-19, flu-like symptoms, or recently traveled outside the U.S.

Please take all precautions to limit your exposure:

    1. Wash your hands regularly for 20-seconds especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing
    2. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth
    3. Cover your coughs

We wish you good health and are with you throughout these challenging times. 

Sincerely,

Doctors and Staff of Riverview Foot and Ankle
