Our office remains open for urgent and emergent dermatologic care as well as skin cancer surgery as we continue to monitor this fluid situation with the Coronavirus. If you have a non-urgent concern or annual skin check, we ask that you call the office to reschedule your appointment or schedule a face time appointment.
We will be checking the temperature of all patients and staff upon arrival at the office. Anyone one with a low grade fever of 99.4 or higher will be asked to leave the office and re-schedule their appointment.
We are asking all patients and staff who are not feeling well, to stay home and reschedule after four weeks. If you have a cough, cold, fever, or flu-like symptoms, please stay home and reschedule your appointment. If you are going to visit our office, please limit to 1 guest accompanying you to our office.
The safety of our patients and staff remains our number one priority. We adhere to the strictest policies and procedures related to infection control. This includes continuing education of staff with regard to hand hygiene, personal protective equipment, and sterile processing of all instrumentation. In light of the recent Coronavirus pandemic, we have instituted additional disinfectant procedures to assure the safety of patients and staff alike.
This is a time to take a deep breath and DON’T PANIC as we will get through this time of uncertainty and resume “normal” life. In the meantime, wash your hands frequently, and take all the CDC recommended precautions to limit potential exposure, and try to enjoy the time at home with your family.
We will continue to monitor the situation closely and notify you should any changes in our operations be necessary. Stay well and stay positive!!!
Dr. Kasper, Dr. Saxena, and the providers and staff at the Dermatology and Skin Cancer Institute.
