Announcing the Return to Elective Surgery Post COVID-19 Pandemic

IMPORTANT COVID-19 INFORMATION

Our office continues to be open to all new and existing patients. We use hospital-grade sanitizers and are taking measures to ensure patients maintain social distancing by not having anyone wait in our reception room with others. If you prefer to wait in your car, just give us a call and we will call or text you when we are ready to bring you straight into a treatment room. Our entire staff is wearing masks and we encourage you to do the same.

For those patients who cannot or still wish not to visit the office, we are offering private video telemedicine visits. Simply call the office at 713-785-7881 and ask for an e-visit and we will be happy to get you set up for an immediate appointment. You can also request an appointment through our website.

I finally think we're starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I'm happy to say that after the last two months away from elective surgery, we are back open and booking elective foot surgery cases. We've been open this whole time seeing patients who urgently needed to be seen, and seeing others through telemedicine.

Because of the personal protective equipment (PPE) that needed to be redirected to the hospitals in the care of COVID patients, it was a mandate of the state that there would be no elective surgery. The governor has now declared that elective surgery can once again go on and the facilities I work at are just reopening to be able to allow that to happen.

If you had a surgery scheduled with us that had to be postponed, we will be in touch with you. There is nothing you need to do. But if you've been sitting on that bunion or hammertoe or having some neuroma pain...something you've been putting off, or something that you've been thinking a lot about during the quarantine during the COVID-19 pandemic, give us a call.

We will take care of you, get your surgery booked, and get your foot pain taken care of. Reach out to us through our website or contact us directly for an immediate appointment.
