National Foot & Ankle

Podiatrists located in Potomac, MD & Friendship Heights, Washington, DC

Telehealth medicine program for National Foot and Ankle

The office is still OPEN for urgent and emergent care.

To better serve our patients during this COVID19 crisis we have instituted a Telehealth medicine program that will allow us to provide necessary care and services without the need to come into the office. Many, but not all, foot and ankle conditions are appropriate for this type of care. Please contact us to find out if your condition may qualify.

We will go over your current medications, authorize refills and/or prescribe new medications based on your health assessment. We may also discuss the importance of vitamin supplements during these challenging times.
