Welcome! We hope you are doing well during these unprecedented times. The Seattle Foot and Ankle Center is a 30-year-old practice that has remained open through the COVID-19 pandemic, reliably serving the medical and surgical needs of the foot and ankle. Dr. John Hoy constantly keeps up-to-date with local, hospital, state and national guidelines, and we are compliant with all best practice health recommendations.
We have made changes to allow for your safe care:
1. Dr. Hoy offers telemedicine appointments and in-office appointments.
2. We have added a new second waiting area, with window open and a sink, to allow for social distancing.
3. All office surfaces are sanitized with each patient visit using strong hygiene measures.
4. The treatment room window is kept open for good air circulation. Sanitizer and tissues are readily available for your use.
5. We offer maximum protection in terms of personal protective equipment. Dr. Hoy wears a face mask, face shield and gloves. Face coverings are required to be worn by staff, patients and those accompanying patients. We will also provide face coverings for those who do not have them.
6. Podiatric treatment is rendered from a good distance. Our staff workspace is configured to maximize social distancing. We also use contactless methods for scheduling, payment, communication, etc.
7. We screen patients and visitors for symptoms. Those who have the following symptoms will be rescheduled and instructed to seek medical attention: fever, new acute cough or difficulty breathing, sore throat, acute onset of muscle pain or myalgia, acute onset of fatigue or malaise, new loss of smell or taste, acute gastrointestinal symptoms such as diarrhea, chills, repeated shaking with chills, headache.
