COVID-19 UPDATES FOR OUR PATIENTS

To our valued patients,

After a difficult few months, we have re-opened on June 8 for all of your dermatologic needs.

We’ve seen a positive response from patients to our video visits. These will continue to be available. Please call us to schedule an appointment, and we can help determine if you need an in-person or video visit.

Please be assured that our primary concern is the safety of our patients and staff.  All the necessary precautions have been taken, and all the appropriate PPE has been secured for our staff.   The office has been scoured, disinfected, and scrubbed down to the floorboards—and this will continue to be done on a regular basis.  Patients will have their temperatures taken on arrival to the office and are expected to come wearing a mask (if they don’t, we will provide one); handwashing and hand sanitizing will be required as well.  A touchless system for checkout has been instituted and we are working out a way to accept payment over the phone if that is preferred.  The exam rooms will be thoroughly disinfected between patient visits, which means the appointments will be scheduled less frequently, and social distancing guidelines of six feet of separation will be maintained in all waiting areas. Air filtration systems have been installed in exam rooms as well as the waiting room.

Of course, you will be asked about recent travel, relevant symptoms, and possible exposure to COVID-19 before your visit as well.  As partners with us in your health care, please be accurate and thoughtful when you provide answers to those questions, as the safety of our staff is critical.

We are thrilled to be back at work, doing what we do best– practicing medicine!

Looking forward to seeing you soon,

The Gendler Dermatology Team
