COVID-19 REOPENING PLANS
As Governor Holcomb has announced that elective medical procedures can now resume, our MediSpa will continue to be closed until further notice. Our top priority is the health and safety of our patients, employees, and community. In order to ensure the safest experience possible, we have implemented many changes at our office to protect our patients and employees. These include changes to our clinic schedule to ensure fewer patients are in the office at one time, use of personal protective equipment, screening all employees and patients for COVID-19 symptoms, and increased cleaning protocols. We are also continuing to offer Telemedicine visits.
We sincerely appreciate your understanding of our new protocols as we adjust to our “new normal”. We look forward to providing our patients with excellent dermatologic care in a safe environment!
RESCHEDULING YOUR APPOINTMENT IF IT WAS PREVIOUSLY CANCELLED
If your appointment was previously canceled while our office was closed, we will be contacting you to reschedule your appointment, prioritizing those patients with urgent needs. Please do not call our office to reschedule your appointment, unless you have an urgent concern such as a bleeding, painful spot, or a widespread rash. If you haven’t heard from us by the end of May, you may then call our office to inquire about rescheduling your appointment.
PREPARING FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT
We are asking for help from our patients in ensuring a safe experience at our offices. Please review the following requirements prior to your appointment with us:
- You are required to wear a mask (cloth mask is adequate) to your appointment. If you do not have a mask, you will be able to purchase a cloth mask for $5 at our office (please be prepared with exact change).
- You should cancel your appointment and seek medical attention if you have any of these symptoms: cough, sore throat, new-onset shortness of breath, temperature equal to or greater than 100.0 F, or have taken medication to reduce fever in the past 24 hours. You should also cancel your appointment if you have been diagnosed with COVID-19, or had contact in the past 2 weeks with individuals diagnosed with or exposed to COVID-19. All of our patients will also be screened for these conditions upon arrival at the office.
- You should strongly consider canceling your appointment if you are someone who is at high risk for COVID-19, in particular patients with poorly controlled high blood pressure, diabetes, lung conditions, and patients who are immunosuppressed (for example, receiving cancer therapy). Please contact our office if you are a high-risk patient and would like to cancel your appointment; we will reschedule your appointment for a later, safer time, or convert your appointment to Telemedicine if appropriate.
- Patients will not be allowed to have anyone accompanying them to their appointment, except under special circumstances (eg, children/adolescents, elderly, or those with special needs). If an accompanying person is necessary, only one accompanying person will be allowed.
- Upon arrival at our office, you will be asked screening questions and have your temperature taken prior to your appointment. If you have symptoms concerning COVID-19 or have a temperature of 100.0 F or higher, you will be asked to return home and your appointment will be rescheduled.
If you need to cancel your appointment for any reason, please contact our office and we will be happy to reschedule your appointment to a later time or convert your appointment to a Telemedicine visit if appropriate.
We will also continue to offer Telemedicine visits for both new and established patients. Telemedicine visits are an excellent way to receive care from the safety and convenience of your own home. If you are interested in scheduling a Telemedicine visit or converting your existing appointment to a Telemedicine visit, please call our office to see if a Telemedicine visit would be appropriate for you.
