Can’t make it to our office? No problem!
The world has slowed down due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, but not everything can (or should) wait for all our routines to return to normal. Foot and ankle problems don’t care about your ability to get around, or what’s going on outside.
Fortunately, we have a way for you to stay on top of managing your foot and ankle care even when you are physically unable to come to our office:
Virtual appointments, aka telemedicine services.
Regardless of whether you’re limited by illness or quarantine, a lack of transportation, scheduling conflicts, or any other reason, a virtual telemedicine appointment is how you can still receive expert insight and analysis from a foot and ankle specialist.
What is telemedicine?
Telemedicine is when we use technology (in this case, Zoom and whatever screens you may have at home) to provide clinical services to you. An in-person visit is not required.
Essentially, this allows Dr. Leibovitz to perform a remote visual inspection of your foot or ankle, communicate directly with you, and answer all the questions you may have – all while he remains in the office, and you in the comfort of your own home.
Here, in a nutshell, is how a virtual appointment works at our practice:
- You contact our office to schedule a virtual appointment.
- We will send you a link.
- At the time of the appointment, click on the link using the device you want to communicate through, and you will be linked with us. When both sides are ready, the appointment will begin.
There’s a bit more information below on what works best for this, but it’s really that simple! (And, of course, if you do have additional questions, we are always happy to answer them beforehand.)
