To Our Valued Patients:

The world is grappling with an issue of enormous scale and human impact. Our hearts go out to all who have been affected by the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19).

At this time, we would like to inform you that we are still open for regular business hours. 

In addition, to ensure your health and safety we have implemented the following: 

  • Confidential virtual consultations (telemedicine) with all doctors using Klara to allow patients to continue their care with the physicians they know and trust while staying safe in the comfort of their own home. Please text 718-550-5971 to sign up. Please note that patients should not send photos or other clinically relevant information until they have agreed to move forward with their appointment using Klara. 
  • Online skincare product orders please send a request HERE.
  • Bookings for in-person appointments 

At Dermatology and Surgery Associates, we believe it is our role and responsibility during this time to prioritize the health and well-being of our patients and employees while also playing a constructive role in supporting local health officials and government leaders as they work to contain the virus.

As part of these efforts, we promote and encourage precautions to reduce the spread of airborne and bacterial illnesses at our office by following the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and CDC Guidelines every day. We urge everyone to follow all recommended guidelines and practice social isolation to improve the present situation.

As precautionary measures to protect and provide a safe treatment environment for our patients and team members, we are adding supplementary procedures across our organization, which include the following:

  • Wiping down all waiting and treatment rooms with disinfectants every hour
  • We are instructing patients when scheduling appointments to call ahead and discuss the need to reschedule their appointment if they develop symptoms of a respiratory infection (e.g., cough, sore throat, fever) within 72 hours of the day they are scheduled to be seen. This will also be asked during appointment reminder calls with patients.

We hope this alleviates some of your fears and concerns during this time. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out. We are here for you!
