covid 19

Dear Patients,

At Michael K. Block, DPM, LLC, the health and safety of our patients and staff is our top priority. Amid the growing concerns around coronavirus (COVID-19), we want you to know that we are taking additional steps to assure your safety. We are continuing to monitor the evolving situation around the coronavirus through the advice of public health authorities, and we are taking all necessary precautions to ensure everyone feels safe attending their appointments.  

We are keenly aware of the mature demographic of our patients and remain committed to protecting you during your visit to our office. We are taking a proactive stance to increase the frequency of our routine cleaning such as disinfecting all areas of the building including, but not limited to doorknobs, exam rooms and lounge area throughout the day.  

We encourage everyone to follow these safe practices to help keep yourself and others healthy:  

*If you have any symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, aside from contacting your physician, we ask that you wait at least 2 weeks before coming to our office for an appointment.  

*Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after visiting the restroom, before eating, after blowing your nose, coughing, sneezing or touching your face.  

*Avoid touching any part of your face with unwashed hands.  

*Cover your cough or sneeze into your elbow.  If you use a tissue, discard the tissue in the trash and then wash your hands immediately.  

We promise to remain vigilant, and we are prepared to make decisions based on current recommendations by the CDC, as well as in response to changing conditions.  

Feel free to contact our office if you have any further questions. If you have an upcoming appointment, and are not able to keep it, please call or email us ASAP.  

Thank you!
