As our offices are now seeing all appointment types, urgent and elective, and again offering cosmetic services, we encourage high-risk patients as listed by the CDC (as of 4/28/2020, see the full list of CDC high-risk patients below) to make informed decisions about their care. CDC List of High-Risk Patients (as of 4/28/2020):
- People 65 years and older
- People of all ages with underlying medical conditions which are not well controlled, including:
- People with chronic lung disease or moderate to severe asthma
- People who have serious heart conditions
- People who are immunocompromised
- Many conditions can cause a person to be immunocompromised, including cancer treatment, bone marrow or organ transplantation, immune deficiencies, poorly controlled HIV or AIDS, and prolonged use of corticosteroids and other immune weakening medications
- People with diabetes
- People undergoing dialysis for severe kidney disease
- People with liver disease
These patients may still want to utilize our TeleHealth visits, which mimic an office visit with your provider and are covered by most insurance companies. If you don’t feel that the Telehealth visit is the right tool for your dermatological need, please call us at 919-870-6600 and we will book an in-office appointment and make special accommodations for any high-risk patient.
It has always been our standard practice to follow strict infection control measures at each of our clinic locations to prevent patients from being exposed to illness or infection. However, at this point in time, many additional infection control measures have been put into place. Below please find a link of some of these additional measures:
