Telemedicine consultations are now available with Dr. Hertzman. For new patients or for follow up consultations a telemedicine consultation with Dr. Hertzman using Facebook, Skype, or zoom is possible. For new patients this will allow a Headstart and a follow up with an actual examination and ultrasound study can be scheduled. We hope that the in person examinations will be possible within 3 to 4 weeks.
Any patient who is scheduled for an office visit may request to have a Covid-19 PCR test done several days before the visit. If you would like to have one of these tests prior to visit please call our office and Marcia can arrange it for you.
Just returned from Honduras. In collaboration with Dr. Lindy Mchutchison under the auspices of the Hackett-Hemwell-Patterson Foundation we treated 100 patients with severe leg ulcers in two days. Patients with leg ulcers related to venous insufficiency who had been treated three months earlier had improved significantly. We took samples from patients with ulcers that have not improved to try to determine the underlying causes.
