COVID-19 Update for Our Valued Patients

Just like you, we are closely monitoring new developments regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus).

Our Belleville, IL, O’Fallon, IL, and Columbia, IL offices remain open and we will continue to see all patients who desire to be seen.

We especially encourage our diabetic patients to keep their appointments:  Regular diabetic foot care evaluations are critical to help reduce the risk of developing limb threatening wounds or infections that may occur if care is neglected.   We will also continue to see patients with acute conditions such as trauma, infections, ingrown nails or any other painful condition that may limit your mobility.

Infection control is something we’ve always taken very seriously and you can count on us to maintain a safe and comfortable experience when you visit any Podiatry 1st facility and during this crisis we will be taking additional measures to help reduce the risk of exposure of our patients and staff.

What WE Are Doing Differently:

  • We will make every effort to get patients into the exam room as quickly as possible.
  • In addition to our world-class standards of instrument sterilization, disinfection and clinical cleanliness, we are also committed to disinfecting anything regularly affected by the human touch. Every commonly-touched surface (e.g. door handles) will be disinfected multiple times throughout the day.Pens will be disinfected after each use.
  • Hand sanitizers are located throughout our facilities
  • Clinical employees are instructed to wash hands before and after every patient appointment.

What we ask of YOU:

  • We ask that the patient is the only member of the family to come back to the treatment area, and that other family members wait in the car if possible. Of course exceptions will be made if the patient is a minor or requires assistance from a family member or caregiver.
  • In the waiting room, please try to keep 6-10 ft from other people at all times
  • If the patient or any member of the family or household has been recently ill (fever of 100.4 or greater, cough, runny nose, shortness of breath), please reschedule your appointment until symptoms have subsided.
  • Per the new CDC recommendation (as of 4/3/2020), please wear a non-medical mask when in public.  Unfortunately, we do not have masks available for all of our patients so please try to obtain and wear a non-medical mask to your visit.
