In-Office Care During the COVID-19 Pandemic
At Community Foot Clinic of McPherson, nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of our patients, our staff, and their families.
At the same time, not all foot and ankle problems can be handled via telemedicine, or wait indefinitely for the care that they need. And as a provider of essential health services, we need to be open in order to help our patients with urgent needs. If you have a foot problem, the last place you want to be is a hospital emergency room or urgent care center.
In order to keep our office as safe an environment as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are taking many additional steps to protect your health.

Our Response to COVID-19
Here are some of the ways we’re putting your health first:
If your condition does not require an in-person physical procedure or test, it’s very likely we can provide all the guidance and treatment recommendations you require over a video conference. We strongly encourage patients with non-urgent needs to choose this option.
Prioritizing urgent needs
As we said, some conditions are urgent and may not be appropriate for telemedicine. Examples of urgent needs include conditions that cause pain, infections, foot or ankle injuries, and diabetic foot concerns. Again, if it involves the feet and is something you might consider going to the ER or urgent care for, please call us first. We want to keep you out of harm’s way as much as possible.
Spacing out appointments
With more appointments going to telemedicine, we have reduced our overall volume of in-office appointments, and are scheduling them so that they are more spaced out through the day. This provides many benefits, including:
- Limiting the number of people in our office at any given time.
- Allowing you to be taken straight back to your exam room, instead of spending time with others in the waiting room.
- Providing ample time to thoroughly sterilize equipment, disinfect patient rooms, and sanitize commonly touched surfaces (doorknobs, counters, etc.) between each patient appointment.
Following all CDC guidelines and recommendations
We are monitoring the situation closely for updates and meeting or exceeding all recommended precautions. This includes, but is not limited to:
- All staff using approved personal protective equipment (masks, gloves, etc.).
- Disinfecting all areas regularly, using CDC-listed cleaners proven effective against COVID-19.
- Enforcing social distancing guidelines (6+ feet) to the greatest extent possible in all interactions

Exceptional foot care should not be out of reach during a community disease outbreak, or for people who are immunocompromised.
