Hello PPFAC Family,
We will keep this page up to date with links to all the articles, blogs and videos as we post the most recent information for you, our patients and community. We are making sure to maintain our care for you, while also helping to prevent the spread of Coronavirus and therefore helping to reduce occurrence of COVID-19 in our community here in Elmhurst and the greater Chicagoland area.
Please note that we have been asked to remain open to ease the burden on the local emergency rooms. Therefore, our clinic is open for the following issues:
- Suspected fractures (we have on-site digital x-ray)
- Suspected or confirmed infections
- Severe lacerations
- Open wounds
- Situations where a patient cannot walk due to foot or heel pain
For the remainder of our patients, we are offering telemedicine appointments or to schedule appointments later in April when the shelter in place order has been lifted (this date is subject to change based on state and/or federal orders). Please see more detailed information about telemedicine and all of our actions to combat COVID-19 in the links below, and as always please give us a call at 630-834-3668 if you have any question at all about whether your situation needs to be seen in our office.
Here are the most recent links listed by date,
