Telehealth Visits Now Available

March 24, 2020

To our existing patients & healthcare providers.

We are now offering Telehealth visits for existing patients taking precautions who need consultations, follow-up visits or non-opioid medication refills.  Most insurance is temporarily accepting Telehealth visits at this time because of COVID-19 including Medicare and Medicaid. A Telehealth visit is a video visit via webcam or your mobile phone using Skype or Facetime.  Just phone visits are not available.

The cost for a Telehealth visit if you don't have insurance is $55 which we will bill to you.

If you would like to schedule a Telehealth visit please call 414-281-1500 in Milwaukee or 262-763-9007 in Burlington and let the front desk person know the type of Telehealth visit you want.  A doctor will call you at the time of your appointment so make sure you are available.

We are in compliance with Health and Human Services (HHS) HIPPA regulations at this time.  You should use available encryption and privacy modes when using any Telehealth applications.

Please call our office if you have an emergency that needs care right away. 

We are deemed an essential business under Governor Evers March 24 order which limits travel except for essential needs like going to the doctor.  We are also in compliance and following all CDC and State of Wisconsin guidelines and disinfecting our clinics with bleach with particular attention given to all exam rooms. All our staff are provided gloves and N95 viral respirator masks and monitored for symptoms. We are asking our patients their travel history and using a laser temperature gun at our front desks and sending anyone home with a fever above 100. Patients exhibiting respiratory infection symptoms or a cough will be told to return when their health improves. AFAW will not see or treat patients that have been out of the country in the last 30 days.

We thank you for your continued trust in us. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

Stay safe and keep well,

Dr. Michael Kokat, COO and the doctors of Advanced Foot & Ankle, Dr. Michael Nute, Dr. Timothy Henke, Dr. Rabab Nazar, Dr. Romy Patel
