*Coronavirus (COVID-19) Statement*

Our region of the country faces a growing threat from the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the seasonal flu. As always our #1 goal is patient care and in an effort to ensure patient safety and the well-being of our staff, we are asking that you proactively reschedule your existing appointments if you are experiencing flu-like symptoms or have traveled outside of the United States in the last 14 days by dialing 443-351-3376.

As medical professionals, we are trained to place the well-being and safety of our patients above all else, and that commitment to your health and safety is driving every decision we are making during this challenging time. We are closely monitoring all developments related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), and we are strictly adhering to all guidelines issued by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and our local and state governments.

We encourage all patients to make informed decisions about their care. We pledge to be here to provide for the essential health care needs of all patients through this difficult time. For our patients age 65 and over, or patients with compromised immunity, we encourage you to consider how best to utilize our services and whether your health situation requires you to postpone dermatologic care. Please contact the office if you have any questions.

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 11/02/2020, see full list of CDC high-risk patients below) to make informed decisions about their care.
