Our Safety Protocols

Learn more about how we minimize the spread of infection and the risk of COVID-19 transmission.

At Pacific Point Podiatry, Dr. Tea and her staff follow guidelines from the CDC to keep patients protected from COVID-19. Some of the precautions will be noticeable, and most will be behind the scenes, but rest assured that we have our patient’s health in mind at all times and take all necessary health and safety precautions.

Dr. Tea and her staff are committed to giving you the most pleasant and comfortable experience during your visit without any compromises to your health, safety, or harm to the environment.

We request all our visitors to follow these guidelines to ensure health and safety for all.
