Modern Vascular is Keeping You Safe During COVID
Our patients come to us because they have urgent health issues that can't be put on hold. We've added a telehealth consultation option to allow us to assess your condition and level of medical urgency through a remote, online consultation. This option is a lifesaver for patients, who need an immediate diagnosis but have COVID concerns. In many cases, same day appointments are available.
If your consultation indicates out-patient treatment is needed, here are a few things that should put your mind at ease:
• We will bring you in to the office for a procedure only if it cannot be delayed without serious risk to your health.
• Our offices are safe. Unlike a hospital, we do not treat patients with infectious diseases. Our staff and visitors are tested daily for Coronavirus symptoms. Waiting rooms, exam rooms and procedure rooms are completely sanitized between patients.
•We have rapid result COVID testing onsite. Our staff is tested regularly and we can provide patient COVID testing upon request.
What is PAD – Peripheral Artery Disease?
PAD - Peripheral Artery Disease is the narrowing of peripheral arteries due to atherosclerosis (plaque buildup on arterial walls) decreasing blood flow to legs, feet, and toes. Left untreated, PAD complications include critical limb ischemia, gangrene, and amputation.
Risk factors that greatly increase the likelihood of developing Peripheral Artery Disease are increasing age, obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, smoking, and Diabetes.
PAD is a serious condition and while medical intervention is often not necessary, medically required treatments cannot be postponed. Don’t let concerns about COVID put your health at risk. Schedule a consultation and our medically trained staff will let you know 1. whether medical intervention is necessary and 2. whether treatment can safely be postponed.
“As a provider I use Modern Vascular for all my complex cases. The results have been outstanding! Not only that, I have had many patients come back to me raving about what a good experience they had with the Modern Vascular staff and physicians. They have helped to salvage many cases of potential amputations and I will continue to refer patients there as I trust Dr. Chun and his staff.”
