In order to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 we ask that all patients wear a face mask and allow us to take your temperature prior to checking in. To best adhere to social distancing protocols, we ask that you limit the number of family members and caretakers present at the visit as much as possible.

We ask that any patient who is experiencing fevers, cough, or other symptoms of an infection, or any patient who has been exposed to someone who is sick, quarantined, or those who have traveled to a high risk area to wait and schedule your new patient appointment until you have fully recovered or it has been 2 weeks since your potential exposure.

We will also be offering virtual visits for certain concerns such as acne, rosacea, and simple rashes and spots. However, please understand there are certain limitations to virtual visits and your concerns may require in-office, clinical evaluation to provide the best care.
