Welcome to Our Practice
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.
- 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. 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.
- 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.
- COVID-19 and Hair Loss
A lot of people are experiencing hair loss after COVID-19 infection. This is due to telogen effluvium, a condition which causes increased hair shedding. Telogen effluvium can be triggered by many things, including illness- such as COVID19 infection- or even periods of significant stress - and we know many people have been under significant stress this past year related to the pandemic! Typically, hair shedding starts about 3 months after the trigger. Thankfully, telogen effluvium usually resolves on its own after 6-9 months.

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.
