SEACOAST DERMATOLOGY, PLLC CORONAVIRUS (COVID – 19) POLICY


 

Our healthcare providers and staff take COVID – 19 seriously and want to inform you of our policy and precautions as recommended by the CDC and WHO.

Our offices are open for dermatology care. We are taking many precautions to protect our patients and staff during this time.

Our providers are scheduling and working with essential staff to minimize your contact with other patients and staff. We also offer special clinic times for patients over the age of sixty. Our dermatology providers continue to provide Teledermatology to care for new or existing patients remotely—via a phone or video call.

All patients must arrive wearing an adequate face covering such as a surgical mask or 2-3 ply cloth covering. Our staff will also wear personal protective equipment.

We ask that only healthy patients visit our office and are screening as part of our pre-operative process and on arrival. Please inform our staff of recent travel and any COVID-19 exposures or illness. We may ask that you reschedule your appointment.

Patients experiencing cold or flu-like symptoms or losing taste or smell should consult with their primary care doctor and reschedule their appointment after they have recovered.

We also ask that patients limit guests to help us socially distance. Only the patient should come into the office unless the patient is a minor or needs caregiver assistance.

All employees must use hand sanitizer, frequently wash their hands with soap and warm water, and avoid touching their faces. During this outbreak, we will respectfully refrain from handshaking. Employees must also use appropriate face masks or shields. Employees with cold-like symptoms must stay home or are sent home and required to follow up with their primary care doctor for testing and care. Employees must follow relevant state travel restrictions or quarantines.

We are also taking measures to provide extra cleaning and extensive disinfecting throughout the offices, including exam rooms, check-in areas, waiting room chairs, doorknobs, and bathrooms.

We understand the critical role COVID-19 vaccination plays in ending this pandemic. Our healthcare providers and staff welcomed the opportunity to be vaccinated during Phase 1. Until vaccinations are widely available to the general population and CDC guidelines change, our team will continue to take all of the precautions above.

Patients are encouraged to call the office, and we will address any questions specific to their medical situation. Our healthcare providers and staff thank you for helping us stop the spread of COVID-19.
