To All our Patients,
The Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery is carefully watching the evolution of the COVID-19 outbreak in our area as well as all the Federal Government Safety Recommendations.
In order to guarantee the safety of our staff and patients, changes to our schedule and office hours are being made on very short notice. We understand that this is an inconvenience to many of you, but we are doing our best to keep everyone safe and minimize possible virus spread and transmission.
Arrangements have been made for our office staff to contact anyone who has a scheduled appointment that might be affected by any office closure as soon as the decision is made. We ask you to please check your email, text messages or our Instagram (@ctr4dermatology) and/or website for most updated announcements on office closures or changes in our schedules. If you call our main location at 202-955-5757 during our regular office hours and you receive our office closed message, this means our offices will be closed for the day.
Please remember to follow your state’s COVID-19 protocol if you are experiencing:
Safety measures implemented at Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery
We have closed off the main entrance, and we want patients to come in through the side door. We have taped off the waiting room and chairs because we want you to go directly into the exam room.
Please do not bring anyone with you that is unnecessary since there will be no place to sit. We do have an extra chair in the exam room, but for now, we have closed off the waiting room.
We also have marked out on the floor social distancing areas so that we maintain a distance of 6 feet. We have also put in a plexiglass shield to protect the employees. Anything can be passed underneath the glass so that it will protect the person on the other side.
Please be safe, continue to wash your hands frequently and thoroughly, practice social distancing and pay attention to all health recommendations of your local authorities.
