Due to the recent alarming increase in covid-19 infection rates,we are only scheduling in-office visits for procedures. All new patients and established patient follow-up appointments will be conducted virtually via teledermatology until further notice. Currently scheduled patients have been contacted and e-mail blast messages have been sent. We are also experiencing an extremely high volume of calls. Please be patient as we are also affected by the shortage in healthcare staff. Thank you in advance for your patience, understanding, and support.
