In an effort to protect the health and safety of our patients and our staff, we have decided to temporarily close our office suspending patient visits effective March 23. We are planning to reopen on April 6 likely at a reduced capacity for "ESSENTIAL" skin-related patient visits only. Our staff will be attempting to contact every patient who has an appointment scheduled during this time to postpone their appointment .

 

What is an example of a "ESSENTIAL patient visit"?: 

     -any new or recurring rash, especially if symptomatic  (itching and /  or painful)

     -any new, changing, or unfamiliar growth or skin lesion

     -any perceived complication from a medication

     -wound /  surgical skin infection (site may be red, swollen, tender, and / or draining)

     - on-going 'serial' treatments (ie: warts, molluscum)

What is an example of a "NON-ESSENTIAL patient visit" [suitable for postponement]?:  

     -routine follow-up for chronic stable/controlled clinical situation ( ie: acne, nail fungus, hair-loss, routine skin exam)

     -elective or cosmetic procedure (ie: skin tags, chemical peels, laser treatments)

     -medication refills: can be electronically requested via your pharmacist. NOTE: NOT all refills can be approved without updated exam

Uncertain ?: Our emergency contact access (PLEASE, EMERGENT or URGENT issues only) is available by calling the office and                                following the prompts.

OUR PHYSICIANS ARE  EVALUATING OPTIONS FOR VIDEO / AUDIO / TELEDERMATOLOGY VIRTUAL VISITS.

Be healthy and safe,
