Benefits of Telemedicine: How We Can Help You Maintain Foot Health Through COVID-19

As the situation surrounding COVID-19 evolves, our NYC foot doctors are continuing to take the necessary steps to ensure all our patients and members in the community stay safe and healthy. Currently, our offices are closed, however we are accepting phone and video phone calls for any foot or ankle concerns you may have.

Some of the benefits of these virtual appointments include:

  1. It reduces trips to your foot doctor: Through telehealth services, you can receive the treatment you need over a quick video chat using a smartphone, tablet, or computer, and avoid making an unnecessary visit to the clinic.
  1. You can address any issues immediately: With a virtual appointment, you can see your foot doctor as soon as any issue arises. This means you will receive prompt treatment and get on the road to recovery as soon as possible.
  1. You’ll save time: Having to go to an in-person appointment for even the smallest, most minor issue will eat up hours of valuable time. A telehealth appointment is typically very quick and requires no travel time or sitting in a waiting room.
  1. You won’t have to compromise on quality of care: Instead of choosing a foot doctor because the foot clinic is close by, or they have short wait times, you can receive care from highly trained doctors you trust, when you need it most, through telehealth.
  1. You’ll cut back on costs. For most people, making a trip to see a foot doctor requires paying for gas or transportation, taking time off work, or even securing child care. Telehealth eliminates these costs, as you can easily fit in an appointment at home or at work during a break.

  • Ingrown toenails
  • Deformities such as bunions, hammertoe, or flat feet
  • Wound management
  • Some gait abnormalities
  • Rehabilitation of injuries
