Managing Stress While Seeking Medical Care

By Nadene Weil, Director of Patient & Physician Relations

Each of us have daily tasks that must be completed; responsibilities outside of our control. These responsibilities combined with keeping you and your family safe during times of uncertainty is very stressful. People all over the world are facing unprecedented situations that are forcing them to make difficult choices to keep themselves and their family safe.

We are Providing a Safe Environment

The staff at Vascular Vein Centers continues to monitor current standards set by Florida Department of Health, the CDC and the World Health Organization. We continue to upgrade the sterilization standards to go above and beyond the minimum standards set not only to keep our patients safe but to make sure our staff can return to their families at the end of the day.

This allows us to continue to see our patients in a safe environment. As a precaution:

You can be assured we are providing a safe environment for all of our patients. All of us play a part in stopping the spread of any virus by following simple personal habits such as washing your hands often or using a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol, avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands and maintain social distancing of at least 6 feet.

Take Care of Yourself

We wanted to remind you to take care of yourself and be mindful of your community by maintaining social distancing standards. Continue to stay active: go on walks or runs, go for a swim in your pool, go for a bike ride or watch a workout video, and participate to your level. Take this time for self-reflection and recognize your constant efforts to keep yourself and your family safe.

Vascular Vein Centers is proud to be the premier provider of leg health services in Central Florida for more than 18 years. We are and will remain committed to taking the necessary actions to support our patients and caregivers in this challenging time. 

Concentrating Our Safety Efforts to 5 Convenient Offices

Our Lake Mary and Waterford Lakes medical teams are now seeing patients at some of our other locations that are close by so that we can concentrate safety and sterilization procedures in fewer spaces. For those that this concerted safety effort affects directly, we will call you directly and reschedule your appointments.

Visitor Policy

At this time, we are only allowing a patient visitor for physical or emotional needs. In some cases, we may ask the patient or visitor to wait outside during the patient appointment. Visitors are required to answer screening questions upon entry.
