Vascular Vein Centers is considered an essential medical practice and as such continues to remain open to serve our patients. We now encourage all of our patients to follow CDC guidelines with regard to face coverings.
We hope you and your family are staying safe and have remained healthy throughout the current COVID-19 pandemic.
We have implemented a policy for all staff to wear face coverings while in the presence of any patient. We feel this is an important safety measure we can take to ensure our patients are as safe as possible. Of course, this latest measure is in addition to many others already implemented, such as:
We now encourage all of our patients to follow CDC guidelines with regard to face coverings. Those recommendations include wearing a face covering whenever in public places. A face covering is defined as any cloth material which covers the nose and mouth of an individual. The CDC recommendation can be found at this link - https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/diy-cloth-face-coverings.html.
Our hope is that all of our patients will comply with CDC guidelines and wear a face covering when in public. While we would like to provide each patient with a face covering, limited supplies won’t allow us to do so. If you don’t have a face covering, the Surgeon General has posted a video on how to make one with just a piece of cloth and two rubber bands. Please follow this link to watch - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tPx1yqvJgf4.
The staff at VVC want to thank you for your patience and cooperation.
We make difficult choices every day, it’s up to you to choose wisely. Share a positive and encouraging message with a friend or family member.
To keep both you and our staff safe, we have implemented extra safety measures:
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. We will see you in one of our other 5 convenient offices; College Park, Kissimmee, The Villages, Davenport and Viera.
For specific appointment types, we are now offering TELEHEALTH; appointments accomplished via telephone or video conferencing. Make sure to ask when you call so we can accommodate you.
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.
Visit our Facebook page and Google listings for updates.
If you have a fever greater than 100.4 or symptoms of a respiratory illness, please call us to reschedule your appointment:
