Dermio Dermatology Response to Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19)

We understand the growing concern surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) across the communities we serve. The health and safety of our patients, physicians, and staff is our top priority. Dermio Dermatology has been actively preparing its offices, physicians, and employees to identify possible patients with the COVID-19 virus and to prevent transmission to themselves, other patients, and visitors. Please read the measures we are taking:

1. Upon scheduling an appointment, we will be confirming no recent cough, cold, flu, or fever, and if the patient has any of these symptoms, we will not schedule but inform you that you are welcome to call back once they are symptom-free.

2. We will advise the patient if they develop these symptoms between the time of their scheduling and their appointment, they will need to call the office and reschedule for a later time when they are without symptoms.

3. If a patient arrives in the office with evidence of cold symptoms or has had direct contact with someone with these symptoms, we will ask them to leave and call us to reschedule.

4. If you have an immunodeficiency, we ask you to postpone until the threat of COVID-19 has passed.

5. Patients only will be permitted into the office area. Anyone traveling with the patient is advised to stay in their cars unless the patient is disabled or is a child. Additional family or friends are not permitted in the reception area.

6. We thank you for your understanding and patience during this evolving situation.
